General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has denied putting a phone call across to APC godfather Bola Tinubu on behalf of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos.
The preacher says he never rang Tinubu to discuss Ambode’s travails.
‘Adeboye would not be involved in politics’
In a statement issued on Pastor Adeboye’s social media accounts, the RCCG said “Our attention has been drawn to news making the rounds from dailies especially the New Telegraph that Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the RCCG had a recent phone conversation with the Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
“We would like to inform the general public that this is false and Pastor E.A Adeboye has not and would not be involved in inter/intra party politics in Nigeria and anywhere RCCG is present across the world. Pastor E.A Adeboye advises all well meaning Nigerians just like him to get their PVCs and exercise their civic duty.
“God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Pastor Adeboye is notable friends with the Tinubus. He’s also on first name basis with a handful of politicians in the power corridors.
