The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has debunked a report claiming that he met with the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu on Sunday.

Tinubu’s meeting with Adeboye was said to have been centred around his decision to settle for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

However, the RCCG in a Twitter post on Tuesday refuted the story. The church said Pastor Adeboye and the RCCG have not and will not endorse any candidate for the 2023 General Elections in Nigeria.

It also said the church would not hesitate to employ the full weight of the law if such happens in the future.

The statement reads:  “It has come to our notice that some news outlets are reporting that a meeting Between Pastor .A. Adebove: The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide and the former Governor of Lagos State Mr. 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 (1) Pastor E.A. Adebove is under the authority of God, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), and as such will not speak on behalf of Christians on issues regarding policies.

“(2) Pastor E.A. Adebove and the RCCG have not and will not endorse any candidate for the 2023 General elections in Nigeria.

“(3) The news reported by Daily Post is false. Daily Post and other News Outlets should desist from spreading false information about Pastor E.A. Adebove 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 the future. God bless you.”
