The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Saturday urged the church leaders and other church members to participate in party politics.
The revered man of God, who challenged the church ministers to go back home and get themselves involved in party politics, named Pastor J. O Obayemi as the new overseer of the church in Nigeria.
He said, “All of you should get back and encourage your members to join parties of their choice, get membership cards and be very active at the ward levels.”
Pastor Adeboye popularly known as Daddy GO who made the announcement at the annual ministers’ thanksgiving of the RCCG held at the 3km by 3km auditorium of the Church in Simawa, Ogun State.
Harping on the rational for stepping down Pastor Adeboye said the development came as a result of the new regulations from government, noting that with new rule, the likes of
him (Adeboye), Pastor Williams Kumuyi of the Deeper Christian Life
Ministry and Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Ministries will have to go.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye assumed the leadership of the RCCG Worldwide in
March 1981 at the age of 36, as at the time, the church had just established the first overseas parish in Ghana.
