The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has denied backing Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that RCCG, Nigeria’s biggest pentecostal Church, had come under fire for setting up a directorate of politics, in what many see as a plan to back the unconfirmed presidential ambition of Osinbajo.
Speaking on Sunday, Pastor Adeboye said that he does not support any presidential aspirant ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Daddy GO, as he is fondly called by his congregation, said he needed to make clarification amid the criticisms against the church’s creation of a Politics Directorate and the instruction to members to be politically involved in the 2023 elections.
He added that politics is not his calling and he will never be a politician.
On the 2023 elections, Pastor Adeboye said he does not know if the 2023 general election will hold as scheduled.
He stated that God is yet to speak to him about the 2023 elections as He did in 2019.
The 80-year-old cleric quickly added that God might still speak to him about the 2023 general elections.
Adeboye stated that his focus is on the Kaduna killings, oil theft, Nigeria’s depressing debt profile and other current national challenges.
