Feb 20, 2018 – Assemblies Of God Church Of Nigeria Says Members Following Rev Paul Emeka Are Being Deceived
Assemblies of God Church of Nigeria leadership has warned members who are still following the instruction of former General Superintendent, Reverend Paul Emeka to desist.
A statement released by the GS, Rev Amaowoh Godwin said members still going after Emeka are under a deceptive oak. He urged them to retrace their steps.
The statement reads;
“Once more, the leadership of the Church, under Rev Chidi Okoroafor, is appealing to innocent ministers and members who were deceived to return to the Church as the crisis is over.
“Emeka is no longer a Trustee of Assemblies of God Nigeria. He has lost at the Supreme Court, and is no longer in control of the National Secretariat.
“Most of the notable people following him had since realised that the game for Emeka is over. He is quietly withdrawing most of his cases in court because he knows it won’t take him anywhere.
“Severally the leadership of the Church has extended a generous olive branch, and those that came realised that the leadership is genuine. One wonders why some members are still following the man who keeps shifting the goal post.
“Therefore, following enquiries from some members on whether the Church was still ready to receive them, we wish to reiterate our earlier statement that we are ready to receive them back to the fold
“Some appear to be under a spell, but our prayer is that they shall all soon be liberated. For emphasis, Emeka remains a suspended member of the Church (until he repent, feels remorse) a decision already affirmed by the apex court. We, therefore, urge our members to be so guided and toe the path of light.”
