General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he doesn’t know whether or not there will be an election in 2023 yet.
The 80-year-old religious leader said this on Sunday at the monthly Thanksgiving Service of the Church.
Adeboye said the clarification was important amid the criticisms against the church’s creation of a Politics Directorate and the instruction to members to be politically involved in the 2023 electioneering process.
“Listen to me carefully and if you are going to quote me, quote me correctly. I am talking to those of you who are my children. Do you want to know the truth? And nothing but the truth? I am talking of myself now.
“As of now, as I am standing before you, I still don’t know whether or not there would be an election next year.
“Don’t say that Pastor Adeboye said there would be no election next year; that’s not what I said. Adeboye does not know yet, put the word ‘yet’.
“How come you don’t know? Because my father has not talked to me about it yet.
“The last time we had an election, He (God) spoke to me about the election by June of the previous year and this is April. So, it is not late but He hasn’t told me yet,” he said.
