According to the 74-year-old clergyman, Pastor Joseph Obayemi, will oversee the affairs of the church here in Nigeria.
Obayemi was deputy in charge of Finance and a member of governing council, before his appointment.
However, Pastor Adeboye, remains the General Overseer of the RCCG Worldwide, while Obayemi would head the church in Nigeria.
There have been insinuations that the church is very tribalistic in its appointments, only handing out senior positions to leaders from the South-Western part of the country.
Responding, Mr. Idredia stated that there were pastors from other Nigerian tribes currently holding senior positions in the RCCG in other countries outside Nigeria:
“On insinuations that only one tribe was fit to hold positions of authority in the RCCG.
“We have pastors outside the country that are from other tribes, who hold top positions in the church.”
According to him, Pastor Agu Irukwu is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Head of the Executive Council of the RCCG in the UK.
“He is also a Special Assistant to the RCCG General Overseer, a Member of RCCG’s World Advisory Council, Regional Pastor of RCCG England, and Chairman of the RCCG’s Regional Board in the UK.
“Irukwu also serves as Senior Pastor of Jesus House for All the Nations, a London Parish of the RCCG established in April 1994.
“He is also Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Head of the Executive Council of the RCCG in the UK, which acts in a supervisory capacity over the 600 parishes in Britain.’’
