Humble preacher and General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has declared another shocker over those jostling for his exalted position. He said his would be successor is still drinking beer at a beer parlour.
A source disclosed to ENCOMIUM Weekly few days back that Daddy GO, as he his fondly called, disclosed this to some of his inner caucus that everybody should focus on their God given assignment and not bother on who will succeed him.
He then allegedly dropped a bombshell that in fact, the person God will replace him with is still at a beer parlour somewhere drinking liquor and that at the appointed time God will tune his heart, redeem and prepare him for service.
We reliably learnt that the declaration was to nip in the bud the raging rumour that there is rancor and silent revolt among some of the new generation pastors with the ministry on who should succeed the 71 year old clergy. Their agitation, we reliably gathered, started over a year ago when he clocked 70. They felt he should retire since he is 70 and should name a successor among them.
However, it was reported that he retorted by declaring he would disgrace those jostling to succeed him, saying the coveted throne is a spiritual issue not political.
On Tuesday,May 21, 2013, we had a chat with one of his spokespersons who pleaded anonymity but confirmed the detail.
“Yes, it is true that Daddy GO said his successor is still somewhere drinking beer at a beer parlour. But that’s not new because he has always been saying that”.
