The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has dissociated itself from rumours making the rounds that its General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, gave his blessings to the vice-presidential ambition of a former Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
The All Progressives Congress had on Wednesday named Osinbajo, who is said to be Adeboye’s close ally, as the running mate of its presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
The RCCG denied celebrating the emergence of the law professor who pastors its Olive Parish located on Banana Island, Lagos.
Writing on its official Twitter page on Wednesday, the church said it does not dabble into politics in any shade or colouration.
“We are a mission and we do not meddle in politics,” the RCCG stated while urging Nigerians to be wary of fictitious and misleading social media accounts dragging its name into the murky waters of politics.
