Pastor Enoch Adeboye might still return as the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Nigeria if the Governing Council of the church decides in his favour.
Following his shock announcement that he will no longer oversee activities of the church in Nigeria due to a new law by the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, it has been revealed that the only way Adeboye can return as the G.O of the church in Nigeria is if the Governing Council of the Church decides in his favour and wants him back.
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.
Others include Pastor A. A. Aderibigbe, Assistant General Overseer; Pastor P. O. Ojo, Assistant General Overseer; Pastor D. O. Oluwalogbon, National Elder; Pastor C. O. Osho, National Assistant Elder; Pastor D. G. Kuo, Regional Evangelist; Pastor E. A. Odeyemi, SATGO Central Africa; Pastor E.O. Daramola, SATGO South Africa II; Pastor G. Lawal, SATGO/PIC Region 12 and Pastor J. A. Obayemi, who was recently appointed country overseer of the church.
The Executive Secretary/CEO of FRCN, Mr. Jim Obazee was sacked as a result of the incident by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sources close to the church revealed that the status quo will remain until the governing council decides otherwise, maintaining that no other person in the church can altar the stated changes that had been announced by the General Overseer.
However, it was not clear if Pastor Joseph Obayemi has received an official schedule of duties. A source, who preferred to remain anonymous, said there was an office already created for the Country Overseer but declined to confirm if the new man actually resumed duties in the office.
According to the close source, in view of the 40-day fasting period which began yesterday, the changes may take some while to be effected, stating however, that Pastor Adeboye remains the General Overseer of the church with presence in over 193 nations.
