The General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a mentor of millions today, his life ministry and wisdom have changed many lives. On the night of July 5, 2019, he caused a major stir among Nigerians on social media when he came out to comment on the recent saga that has rocked Nigeria in the past week.
Although Pastor Adeboye didn’t mention any names, many Nigerians came to the conclusion that he was stylishly and indirectly addressing the r@p* issue which sprung up a week ago between the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) general overseer, Biodun Fatoyinbo and wife of popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, Busola. The flamboyant pastor trailed by murmurs of s*xu@l impropriety and abuse of power in his conduct with his members for years, most famously in the 2013 scandal where a female member of his church revealed an affair with him.
COZA is known for its youthful congregation, so this fresh allegation dropped like an anvil, weighing heavily on social media conversation and demanding attention of leaders in the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN). The added factor of the accuser being married to the well-known singer, added even more weight to her allegations. A day after the protests, the Fatoyinbo was forced to step down.
Pastor Adeboye had this to say:
“I feel compelled to say some things to those that are young and up and coming ministers. What I want to say is from the Bible:
1. There is nothing hid that shall not come to the open or made manifest. Mark 4:22

2 Timothy 2:22 When you find yourself facing youthful lust, flee; don’t say you’re highly anointed or something, ask Samson. You may say I’m old fashioned, I agree. I’ll never have a private secretary who’s a woman.
When a woman accuses you of something, nobody will listen to you whether you’re right or wrong; be wise! I’m old fashioned, but I’m still surviving since I was ordained; it’s better to be old fashioned & live than modern and die.”
So, Nigerians, what do you think? Remember, he didn’t mention any names.
