The church's Head of Media and Public Relations, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, said "If you know Daddy GO (Adeboye) very well, he does not make such an important decision without consulting the Church Council, and most importantly, God."
He continued, "That decision has been made and
it does not in any way affect his position as the
General Overseer of the RCCG.
"So, there is no need to reverse the decision after
the Federal Government has suspended the
implementation of the FRC law" he said.
Pastor Adeboye had named Pastor Obayemi as the overseer of the church in Nigeria and took on the new title of General Overseer, RCCG, Worldwide in new leadership structure to effect the new change that occured.
