The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye on Monday, denied the rumour that Reverend Dr. Uma Ukpai is his ‘Spiritual Director’.
According to the revered man of God, his spiritual father remains “Late Reverend (Pa) Josiah Akindayomi the Founder and General Superintendent of RCCG.”
He, however, noted that he holds Ukpai in high esteem as one of the generals of the Christian faith in Nigeria.
This was made known via his official Facebook page.
There were widespread rumours on the social media on Sunday that Adeboye said that the respected Akwa Ibom-based evangelist is his spiritual head.
Read the full rebuttal below:
“Shalom saints, this is to bring to the attention of the general public that the news circulating around the internet and social media space concerning me saying Reverend Dr Uma Ukpai is my spiritual father is very WRONG. Reverend Dr Uma Ukpai is one of the highly respected Generals in faith in Nigeria and he is someone I hold in high esteem. That being said, my Spiritual Father remains Late Reverend (Pa) Josiah Akindayomi the Founder and General Superintendent of RCCG. I wish everybody a wonderful fasting season and may God keep us all in all our dealings in JESUS name (Amen).”
