May 17, 2012 – Pastor Adeboye Advised To Step Down As RCCG General Overseer
The General Overseer, GO of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare. Adeboye has been advised to step down to pave way for younger Pastors to take over. naijagists.com
This apparently came from 20 Europe-based RCCG Pastors during Daddy GO’s 70th birthday anniversary.
We learnt about 20 Pastors from the branches of the Church in Europe met with the revered man of God fondly called “Daddy G.O” in his International office at Redemption Camp to advise him to resign since he has clocked 70 years.
The pastors were said to have cited the case of the four Assistant General Overseers (AGOs) of the church, Pastors M.O. Ojo, Ilori, Aderibigbe and D. Ojo, whose retirements were announced at the conclusion of Minister Conference on Sunday, August 8, 2010.
A pastor of the church who is shocked at the effrontery of the pastors wondered how some people could be thinking that way, “when all of us are seriously praying to God to grant our father (Pastor Adeboye) long life, good health and strength to continue the good work he’s doing for the Lord.”
He further said the position of the General Overseer of the Church is not for the highest bidder or the most erudite pastor; rather, it is God who will appoint the most qualified pastor when it is time.
Pastor Adeboye had told his faithful in one of the services not too long ago that his successor is still in drinking joint, that is, the fellow is yet to give his life to Christ or he is still a baby Christian.
