The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has denied that Pastor Enoch Adeboye, its General Overseer, met with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and endorsed him.
Some news platforms had speculated that the RCCG leader had met with Tinubu on Sunday at the Redemption Camp in company with Oluremi, his wife.
The reports had also claimed that Adeboye was not opposed to the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC. But in a statement, the RCCG denied such a meeting never took place.
The statement read: “It has come to our notice hat 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 Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu was held 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 (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), and as such will not speak on behalf of Christians on issues regarding policies.
