the church slammed people that were calling for him to retire as the Head of RCCG. Pastor Johnson Odesola, who happens to
be the special assistant to Pastor Adeboye on administration and personnel is said to state that the church’s constitution did not
state that anyone above 70 years should not lead the ministry.
“Whereas the constitution provided that the deputy and assistant general overseers are appointed to retire at 70 and enjoy their retirement benefits for life, there is no such provision for the general overseer.”
Pastor J.O. Obayemi is now the one that has been named as Adeboye’s successor. Pastor Obayemi was the deputy in charge of
Finance and also a member of governing council.
