The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG,
Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has denied that the church endorsed the
aspiration of one of its pastors, Prof. Yemi Osibajo, as the vice
presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Osibajo, who pastors the Olive branch of the RCCG on Banana Island,
Lagos, on Wednesday emerged the running mate of General Muhammadu
Adeboye, while reacting to the subtle endorsement of Osibajo by a
Twitter handle: @rccgworldwide, presumed to be the official Twitter
handle of the RCCG, denounced the page.
He said in a Tweet credited to him on @rccghq: “RCCG is not affiliated nor represented by @rccgworldwide.
“The church’s official twitter page is @rccghq.”
In no fewer than four other tweets, the church equally faulted the endorsement of Osibajo by the creators of @rccgworldwide.
One of the tweets by the Pastors Seed reads: “RCCG has not celebrated
anybody for any position in the forthcoming elections! The
#OfficialRCCG handle is @rccghq. Do not be misled.”
Another reads: “We are a mission and we do not meddle into politics #RCCG #OfficialRCCG @RCCGworldwide is wrong.”
Another said: “#OfficialRCCG – @rccghq We do not denounce neither do
we endorse candidacies for elections. We are not a political party.”
Similarly, on his Facebook page – PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE – the revered cleric posted the following statement.
“On behalf of The Governing Council of The Redeemed Christian Church
of God, we would like to inform the public that RCCG is not affiliated
nor represented by @rccgworldwide.
“The church’s official twitter page is @rccghq. The church cherishes
the right of all citizens to participate in the democratic process to
