pastor adeboye forced to step down

January 7, 2017 – Shock As Daddy GO Pastor EA Adeboye Retires As GO For Nigeria, Names Joseph Osuolale Obayemi As The New GO

  • Pastor Adeboye Remains RCCG Worldwide General Overseer
  • I Stepped Down As The GO For Nigeria Because Of Nigerian Federal Government Directives

Members of RCCG were looking forward to the usual annual Thanksgiving Service with the General Overseer (GO), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye on Saturday but they were shocked when the GO announced a new leadership for the fastest growing church in the country.

The announcement coincided with prophesy of surprises listed by Adeboye in his annual prophesy released on December 31, 2016, while he urged members to join any political party of their choice in order to have a stake in the selection of leaders across the country.

The don-turned cleric told the members at the ultra-modern 3kmX3km auditorium located at Shimawa in Ogun State that the announcement of the new GO for Nigeria became necessary following government’s directives to all religious bodies to appoint leadership on a tenure basis.

Wearing blue patterned batik dress, Adeboye named Pastor Joseph Osuolale Obayemi as the GO (Nigeria) while the new church Secretary is Pastor Johnson Folorunsho Odesola and Pastor Joseph Adeyokunu, Treasurer.

The news was received with shock by the members but their fears was allayed when Adeboye said that he remains the GO (Worldwide) for the church which has presence in over 192 countries in the world.

He added that new GO – Obayemi will oversee the Nigerian arm of the church, adding that, “this will also affect other General Overseers including David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church aka Winners’Chapel; Kumuyi of Deeper Life; Daniel Olukoya of Mountain of Fire Ministries, among others.”

He described the new GO as an experienced administrator who has been prepared for years by God for the task.

According to him, Obayemi has been part of the mission’s Salary Review Committee as well as member of the church’s In-Land Mission and has also represented RCCG at Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) activities across the country.

The new secretary – Odesola is an Assistant General Overseer and the pastor in charge of the Church’s Headquarter in Ebute Metta, Lagos.

Adeboye charged the members to join political parties of their choice as this would afford them the opportunity to be part of the selection of leaders.

I want to urge all of you to join any political party of your choice so that you can be part of those that will select leaders. You must start from your ward where you can be a delegate to be able to choose leaders,” he said.

He also announced the commencement of the annual fasting and prayer of the church which he said would last for 40 days starting from January 11 to February 19 across the globe.

    What does the federal or any government has to do with the affairs and the management of any religion institutions in Nigeria? If such nasty, dumb, and stupid directives interfering with the management and activities of the church is from Buhari administration, then PMB chioce as Nigerian elected president was a national disaster and a total disgrace. Religion institutions have the right to manage their own affairs just as all the traditional institutions manage their own issues. The only reason why federal or state government can interference with the activities of the church is if there is a criminal activities and public safety are seriously involved like building a structurally solid church auditorium or sactuary. This claim must be investigateD by naijagists.com, and if that is true, then I have supported and voted for a religious fanatic posing as a moderate or pathrotic citizen during the election. This is first step to religion freedom supression in Nigeria if Nigerian people didn’t rise to challenge such anti-Christ decree by president Mohammed Buhari and his team of Muslim intolerance fantastic. How does this stupid and dumb decree became a law in Nigeria?. Instead of working to improve our economy, stop the Fulani Herdsmen killings of innocent christians around the nation, create jobs, generate more electricity, and provide adequate security for us, Mohammed Buhari administration is busy detacting to the church on how to manage themselves. If this is true, then we have voted the wrong man to power. This is very shameful in all ways.

    If the reason he gave for stepping down is true that the directive came from Federal government, then Buhari have overstepped his bounds. Can he direct an Imam to step down? I said it a while ago and will continue to say it, Buhari and his Muslim fanatics have an agenda to make Nigeria a 100% Islamic nation. Instead of him to look for ways to better the lives of the people he is busy carrying out the myopic policies of ignorant Lai Mohammed. This started with the retirement of almost all Southern military officers and replacing them with those from the Islamic north. Take a look at the list. Secondly, all his kitchen cabinet members are from either Sokoto, Katsina and Kano. Take a look at the heads of departments and you will see the composition of the ministers. Buhari’s main reason for coming to power is now manifesting, Islamise Nigeria.

    Our beloved nation is gradually going down south. First, it was a governor that diplomatically and wisely promulgate a state law to allow preachers to get permit before preaching which every sane human being will understand it was formulated to curtail crusades. Now, from the government to church leaders to now have mandatory rotation of leaders brings to question the real freedom of religion as prescribed by the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.

    Its not only the sign of the end times but the arrow to separation of regions. Am sure agitators of biafra are watching and also smiling.

    In my own opinion : I don’t think government should be blame for what is happening in (RCCG) Regarding daddy GOC Adeboye stepping down as National General Overseer.
    The law did not Enacted for Churches or Mosques.
    The law was enacted for Non Profit Organisations (NGO).
    If any organisation is established as an NGO and they solicit funds from the Public Then they must have their accounts TRANSPARENT.
    No one forced any Churches or any Mosques to register with CAC as an NGO, and since they chose to register as an NGO, then they must go by the rules and laws governing ALL NGOs
    Since RCCG decided to registered as Non Profit Organisations they must comply with the rules and laws of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN)
    Daddy GOC Adeboye being a Law Abiding Man. For Stepping down because of his RESPECT FOR THE RULE OF LAW. He ought to be commended because if he disobeys the Law, what MORAL STANDING he has to counsel church members to obey the law and not commit crimes.
    This Law was passed by National Assembly and it was signed into law under the last Administration of President Goodluck Johnathan as The Code of Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN) 2015. I belief some people are not aware of it until now when daddy GOC Adeboye was the first man of God to obey the law.
    We should all remember that the law was passed and signed under a Christian President Jonathan and Christian leaders challenged the matter in court and lost, now who should we blame?
    I rest my case
    May God blessed each one of us for our contribution
