Some Europe-based pastors of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have reportedly advised the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye to step down from his post to pave way for a younger pastor to head the church.
According to PM News, about 20 pastors from the branches of the Church in Europe met with the revered man of God fondly called “Daddy G.O” in his International office at Redemption Camp to advise him to resign since he has clocked 70 years.
The pastors were said to have cited the case of the four Assistant General Overseers (AGOs) of the church, Pastors M.O. Ojo, Ilori, Aderibigbe and D. Ojo, whose retirements were announced at the conclusion of Minister Conference on Sunday, August 8, 2010.
A pastor of the church who is shocked at the effrontery of the pastors wondered how some people could be thinking that way, “when all of us are seriously praying to God to grant our father (Pastor Adeboye) long life, good health and strength to continue the good work he’s doing for the Lord.”
He further said the position of the General Overseer of the Church is not for the highest bidder or the most erudite pastor; rather, it is God who will appoint the most qualified pastor when it is time.
Pastor Adeboye had told his faithful in one of the services not too long ago that his successor is still in drinking joint, that is, the fellow is yet to give his life to Christ or he is still a baby Christian.
