CAC’s General Evangelist, Abiara retires (Details)

 
The Supreme Council of the Christ
Apostolic Church has named Prophet Hezekiah Oladeji as the new General
Evangelist of the church.

This is coming after the retirement of Prophet
Samuel Abiara, who recently attained the age of 75.
Oladeji was an evangelist at CAC
Canaanland until his appointment by the Supreme Council, the church’s
highest governing body, which comprises of all principal officers, all
Assistant General Superintendents and other senior officers.
Sources in the church told Journalists that there were usually three candidates for the position,
from which the Supreme Council would choose one, “based on the leading
of the Holy Spirit.”
Meanwhile, in a telephone interview with PUNCH on Friday night, Abiara, who heads the Agbala Itura
Worldwide, said he was grateful to God for a successful tenure.
He said, “I’m happy. I’m very happy and I
thank God for His grace. In the rules of the ch
urch, when you clock 75,
you retire, and that was what happened. I was even one of those who
announced him as the new General Superintendent. So, I’m happy.”
When our correspondent called the
church’s Director of Publicity, Pastor Ademisoye Alawode, he said he
could not comment on the story as he would need clarification on the
issue.
“We will release a statement when we have clarification,” he added.
