Adeboye: Only Governing Council can reverse decision



The recent changes announced by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, remains and can only be reversed by the church’s Governing Council.

This came as members of the House of Representatives, yesterday, resolved to probe the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, FRCN, over alleged tilted activities of the body.

According to the constitution of the church, the highest organ of the church consists of Pastor Adeboye as chairman with 13 other very senior pastors, including Pastor J. H. Abiona, Deputy General Overseer; Pastor J. A. O. Akindele, Assistant General Overseer; Pastor D. A. Ilori, Assistant General Overseer and Pastor M.O. Ojo, Assistant General Overseer.

Vanguard gathered, yesterday, that the recent sack of the Executive Secretary/CEO of FRCN, Mr. Jim Obazee, pending a detailed review, extensive consultation with stakeholders and reconstitution of the board of the council, may not affect the decision of Pastor Adeboye to appoint a national overseer for the church.
