The Redeemed Christian Church of God ( RCCG) has denied reports that its General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had a meeting with the All Progressives Congress (APC), presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, following his decision to settle for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
The Church’s Public Relations Office disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.
TheFact Daily gathered that some news platforms had reported that the revered cleric met with Tinubu on Sunday at the Redemption Camp in Ogun State.
However, the church said their General overseer will not speak on behalf of Christians on issues regarding policies.
The statement read, “It has come to our notice that some news outlets are reporting that a meeting between Pastor E.A. Adeboye, The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, and the former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was held a few days back at the Redemption Camp where our esteemed father in the Lord was said to have supported the preferred candidature of the party the former governor is a member of.
“This is to inform the general public that Pastor E.A. Adeboye is under the authority of God, the Christian Association of Nigeria, and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, and as such, will not speak on behalf of Christians on issues regarding policies.
“Pastor E.A.Adeboye and the RCCG have not and will not endorse any candidate for the 2023 General elections in Nigeria.”
Describing the news of the meeting as false, the church warned, “News outlets should desist from spreading false information about Pastor E.A. Adeboye and the RCCG as it defeats the code and ethics of journalism and the full weight of the law will be employed if such happens in future.”
