Adeboye retires as RCCG GO, Obayemi named successor

07 January 2017, 12:57

Lagos - Pastor Enoch Adeboye has retired as the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Nigeria.

He announced the decision on Saturday morning, January 7.

Pastor Joseph Obayemi has been named as his successor.

Obayemi was appointed the new GO at the Annual Ministers Thanksgiving at Shimawa, in Ogun State.

Adeboye, 74, was appointed General Overseer of the church in 1991, taking over from Papa Akindayomi, who had died the previous year.

Adeboye will, however, continue to lead the global ministry in its bid to reach even more people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Until his appointment, Obayemi was the Pastor in charge of Region 2.

He is also the National Chairman of the newly formed Redeemer's Men Fellowship (RMF).

Obayemi was promoted to Assistant General Overseer of the church in August 2016.

Pastor Johnson Odesola, who was Adeboye's Special Assistant on Administration and Personnel,  was appointed the church Secretary.
