Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG) has clarified that he handed over the mantle of leadership of RCCG Nigeria to Pastor Joseph Obayemi because of the new legal requirement guiding all registered churches.

The statement clarified that the latest development is sequel to the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council, guiding all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs.

The regulation stipulates that heads of non- profit organisations like churches now have a maximum period of twenty years to lead their organizations while on retirement, they are not permitted to hand over to their families.

Pastor Leke Adeboye reiterated that Pastor Funsho Odesola, will now serve as the new Church Secretary while Pastor Joseph Adeyokunu, is the new Church Treasurer.‎

He advised all members of RCCG to understand this new structure and go about their service to God and humanity in holiness and soul winning.

He also appealed to members to educate people around them and not spread inaccurate information stressing that Pastor E.A Adeboye remains the General Overseer of RCCG Worldwide.
