RCCG clears the air on the viral flyer and the Pasuma invitation

The
controversial flyer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos
Province 20, Lagos Island Family with picture of fuji maestro, Wasiu
Alabi Pasuma has been proven to be hand work of enthusiast printer. 

According
to information made available to ENCOMIUM Weekly on our visit to the
parish on Sunday, September 27, 2015, located on Martins Street,
opposite Oluwole Car Park, Lagos.

 “It was the
printer that made that mistake, nobody instructed him to place pictures
of Pasuma and other artistes on the flyer. More so, we had not even seen
the flyer before it went viral on social media. I guess someone must
have seen it with the printer and smart it with phone, thereon via
social media. As a matter of fact, the flyer was rejected and destroyed
immediately, so, it was surprising to now hear it was on the internet.
The outreach will still hold as planned, but not with all the misleading
information on the internet,” the source said.
 
The controversial  flyer

On
the alleged suspended pastor, ENCOMIUM Weekly was reliably informed
that Pastor Toyin Ogundipe was never in connection to the controversial
flyer neither was he affected in any way. We further gathered that
Pastor Ogundipe is a professor of Botany, a former Dean of the School of
Post-graduate studies and currently the Director of Academic Planning
(the Academic and Research unit of the University of Lagos).

“The only thing I can say is that, National (the Governing Council of
The Redeemed Christian Church of God) has resolved the issue, Prof.
(referring to Prof. (Pastor) Toyin Ogundipe) was not affected at all. He
was our former Area Pastor as well as Zonal Pastor until March this
year. Our area headquarter had been carved out of his area long before
this issue came up. So, it does not have any connection with him at all.

“At the last Holy Ghost service in Camp, Prof. was among the pastors
who ministered with Daddy G.O (referring to Pastor E. A. Adeboye, the
general overseer), if he is truly suspended, you cannot see him on the
altar. He is a revered man of God who enjoys the goodwill of the vast
members of the church and the public.”
