Pastor Adeboye speaks on handing over to Bishop Oyedepo or Joe Olaiya as RCCG General Overseer

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye has revealed that God has not shown him the man who will be his successor.

Pastor Adeboye made this known at the ongoing ministers’ conference of the mission holding at the Redemption Camp, where he quelled rumors circulating that his successor is already known.

I have no successor yet – Pastor Adeboye

“Elijah knew before Elisha knew that he would succeed him, Moses also knew that Joshua would succeed him and likewise Eli knew before Samuel and not the other way round and therefore, God will tell me first before any other person about who will become my successor as a general overseer.

“So, those of you who are carrying rumour of who would be my successor or claiming to be the one that God had chosen should desist from such act as God had not shown me anybody yet.

”Some even said I would hand over to Bishop David Oyedepo, some said to Pastor Joe Olaiya because the two are very close to me that they do minister during our major events such as the conventions, Holy Ghost congresses and yet another quarter said one of my sons is the one succeeding me.

“But I would advice you to always check sources of your information before believing such information and also to focus on whatever you are doing rather than spreading rumour.

“So, let me say it loud and clear again that God has not told me who my successor is.

“What God had told me several years ago was that He would tell me who my successor would be at least five years before I would be called home and as at this now, He had not told me anything as regards that, which means He is not ready to call me home in the next five years.”

Speaking further, Adeboye said he feels pity for whoever will succeed him because the person will have to pray twice as hard he does.

“Because I know how many hours I pray a day and I can count how many days I eat in a year too.

“So, whoever that will take over from me, such person will have to surpass me and God will have mercy on the person.”
