Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has admitted he does not know if there will be an election in 2023 yet.

The 80-year-old cleric made it clear that God has not told him whether there would an election next year.

He however noted that God might still speak to him about the 2023 general elections but He has not spoken to him yet.

Adeboye also said politics is not his calling and he will never be a politician.

He stressed that he does not support any presidential aspirant ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The octogenarian preacher said this on Sunday at the monthly Thanksgiving Service of the Church.

Adeboye said the clarification was important amid the criticisms against the church’s creation of a Politics Directorate and the instruction to members to be politically involved in the 2023 electioneering process.

Adeboye said, “Listen to me carefully and if you are going to quote me, quote me correctly. I am talking to those of you who are my children. Do you want to know the truth? And nothing but the truth? I am talking of myself now.

“As of now, as I am standing before you, I still don’t know whether or not there would be an election next year. Don’t say that Pastor Adeboye said there would be no election next year; that’s not what I said. Adeboye does not know yet, put the word ‘yet’.

“How come you don’t know? Because my father has not talked to me about it yet. The last time we had an election, He (God) spoke to me about the election by June of the previous year and this is April. So, it is not late but He hasn’t told me yet.”
