Leke Adeboye, the Senior Personal Assistant of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has tendered an unreserved apology over a comment he made on his Instagram page where he described some pastors of the church as “goats”.
In a post on his social media page, Leke wrote: ” I wish to use this medium to tender my unreserved apologies on the statement made from my social media handle about some of our esteemed Pastors.
“The disciplinary measure taken by the Mission is well received and this period will be used to reflect and introspect.
“I wish to crave your indulgence to please forgive my extreme statement which I wish to emphasize was absolutely not intended to insult or malign.
“I also wish to apologise profusely to the entire leadership and Pastors of our beloved church who might have been hurt by this statement”, the posting read.
The young Adeboye drew the ire of some members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) when in protest against a practice he retorted to the use of foul language.
It is a common practice in the church that every first service of the month is designated as Thanksgiving Sunday and all RCCG pastors are expected to hook up their parishes with the National Headquarters where Adeboye will deliver a sermon.
The GO’s sermon is expected to be the only sermon for that Sunday.
Pastor Adeboye had during lasSunday’say sermon, explained why he won’t endorse any presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections.
He also chided the Federal Government for the spate of insecurity, wondering if there would be elections in 2023.
However, after Adeboye’s sermon, some pastors went on to preach in their parishes.
Leke had through a post on his Instagram page frowned at such pastors describing them as “goats”.
”Why would you go and preach another sermon after Daddy GO had just finished speaking and preaching.
”You are not a son, you are a goat sir. Next Thanksgiving service, just do altar call, then Thanksgiving,” he wrote.
