The statement also clarified that Adeboye stepped down in Nigeria to conform with the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council, guiding all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs.

Leke Adeboye, in his statement, also clearly specified the role of Pst Joseph Obayemi.

What Pst Adeboye said, the statement clarified, is that that the Church in Nigeria will now be led by Pastor Joseph Obayemi.

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