The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Saturday appointed a new General Overseer (GO) for the church in Nigeria. He continues in his capacity as the General Overseer for the RCCG Worldwide.
Giving details for the change in leadership in Nigeria, Adeboye said the decision was carried out in fulfillment of the new legal requirements of the Financial Regulations Council, guiding all registered churches, mosques, and Civil Society Organisations.
