Members of The Redeemed Christian Church of God have been explaining to encomium.ng the sudden retirement of the General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye who turns 75 on March 2.
They claimed there is a law which compelled the retirement of Adeboye based on his length of reign ( as he has served in that capacity for 36 years) and age.
That these reasons made his retirement compulsory.
And earlier today (Saturday, January 7, 2017), a few people were appointed to be in the Governing Council.
Pastor Joseph Obayemi was appointed General Overseer for Nigeria; Pastor Johnson Odesola is Secretary (he is Adeboye’s in law as his daughter is married to Pastor Leke Adeboye) and Pastor Adeyokunnu as Treasurer (who is a sibling of Adeboye’s wife).
Now, Pastor Adeboye is still the spiritual head and leader internationally.
