Pastor Adeboye Retires As General Overseer Of RCCG
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG), Pastor E.O Adeboye, has retired as the overseer of the RCCG church in Nigeria and has remained the overseer of RCCG worldwide.
A statement signed by Leke Adeboye, the clergyman's last son clarified that Adeboye remains the general overseer, Worldwide of RCCG while Obayemi will be leading the RCCG Nigeria.
According to him, the development was in line with 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, the statement read.
Pastor J.O Obayemi is the new Nigeria overseer and was appointed at the Annual Ministers Thanksgiving at Shimawa, Ogun State.
Recall that last year, the church said those calling for his retirement because of his age were ignorant of the church’s doctrine.
