A letter circulating on social media indicates that a Provincial Pastor of Province 21, on behalf of Victory Parish of RCCG in Magodo, Lagos State, had thanked Fayose for influencing the choice of Deji Ogunsakin as running mate to the PDP candidate, Kolapo Olusola Eleka.

But in a statement issued by Olaitan Olubiyi, head of Media and Public Relations of RCCG, the church said the letter was fake.

The statement read, “We declare unequivocally that the letter dated July 2, 2018 is fake as it did not originate from the said Parish neither was the signature to it that of the pastor of the parish.

“Our pastor whose name was placed as the writer of the letter is not and could not have used the designation of parish pastor as used in the letter. Our pastors are called pastor-in-charge. He does not also use the signature appended to the letter.

“We are not sure who the authors of the letter may have been but we condemn the mischief, falsehood and criminal tendencies involved in the act.

“As a church with members in different social and political associations of their choice, the Redeemed Christian Church of God does not engage itself in the act of open or clandestine support in contests which have her members on diverse sides.”
