The 74-year old Power-filled man of God, fondly called Daddy GO is said to have stepped down today 7th January 2016.
Yes we all knew that the day would come when he would step down but we never saw it coming so soon . The Good news is that this change applies to the Nigerian Arm of the RCCG.
Though News Sites carry news of his retirement , the fact & truth is that the New structuring just applies to RCCG Nigeria .
Pastor E. A Adeboye still remains the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christain Church Of God Worldwide.
According to a statement signed by Pastor Leke Adeboye, the clergyman’s last son and Personal Assistant said the clarification is coming on the heels of misrepresentation of Pastor E. A Adeboye’s announcement at the Annual Ministers Thanksgiving held at the redemption camp today that the Church in Nigeria is now to be led by Pastor Joseph Obayemi.
The statement clarified that the latest development is sequel to the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council, guiding all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs.
The regulation stipulates that heads of non profit organisations like churches now have a maximum period of twenty years to lead their organizations while in retirement, they are not permitted to hand over to their families.
Pastor Leke Adeboye reiterated that Pastor Funsho Odesola, will now serve as the new Church Secretary while Pastor Joseph Adeyokunu, is the new Church Treasurer.
He advised all the members of RCCG to understand this new structure and go about their service to God and humanity in holiness and soul winning.
So please take note Pastor E.A Adeboye remains the General Overseer of RCCG Worldwide.
