President Buhari, Osinbajo host Pastor Adeboye (photos)

Earlier today, President Muhammad Buhari received in audience General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye in the State House.

Photos from the meet was captured by the official photographer of the state house, Bayo Omoboriowo.

Pastor Adeboye who was invited to minister at the ongoing 60 Days Sacrifice Of Praise Over Nigeria, by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, was seen exchanging pleasantries and engaging in talks with the president.

All through the meet, he had his facemask on.

The meeting is believed to be connected to the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) which Buhari signed into law on August 7.

Religious leaders have kicked against the provisions of the amended law, one of which requires government supervision on religious organisations.

RCCG spokesman Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi had in a recent interview said Adeboye’s position on the law was not different from that of the recognised national Christian bodies.

“The stand of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and the leadership of the church on issues like this is not always different from whatever the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria say.

“We always align ourselves with whatever the stand of the leadership of CAN and the PFN on issues like this is,” he had said.
