Pastor E.A Adeboye has reportedly handed over the mantle of leadership as the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God. Pastor J.O. Obayemi has been named as his successor. Until his appointment, Obayemi, was a deputy in charge of Finance and a member of governing council.
The respected man of God announced his decision on Saturday morning, January 7, 2017 to the ministers of the Church. He announced a new leader who would be in charge of church activities in Nigeria.
