Pastor Adeboye has written to RCCG Members over Tinubu’s presidency
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has written to the members of the RCCG over the presidency ambition of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Pastor Adeboye in a rebuttal by the RCCG Public Relations Department debunked news report claiming that he is backing the presidency of Tinubu who chose Kashim Shetimma as his running mate, ahead of the 2023 general election.
Reports had filtered out that Adeboye and the former Governor of Lagos State, Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu, allegedly met at the church headquarters in Redemption Camp, Ogun State, where he was said to have supported his candidacy.
But in a recent statement, Pastor Adeboye released a disclaimer stating that the endorsement never happened.
Adeboye expressed support for the position of the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria on the 2023 election.
The church department said Adeboye will never endorse any candidate.
The statement partly reads:
“This is to inform the general public that :
1) Pastor E.A. Adeboye is under the authority of God, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), and as such will not speak on behalf of Christians on issues regarding policies.
2) Pastor E.A. Adeboye and the RCCG have not and will not endorse any candidate for the 2023 General elections in Nigeria.
3) The news reported by Daily Post is false. Daily Post and other News Outlets should desist from spreading false information about Pastor E.A. Adeboye and the RCCG as it defeats the code and ethics of Journalism and the full weight of the law will be employed if such happens in future. God bless you.”
