Adeboye Rejects Osinbajo, Endorses Jonathan For A Second Term.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has failed to endorse the candidacy of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammady Buhari and his running mate, Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo for the February 14 presidential election.
Rather, Adeboye has queued behind President Goodluck Jonathan in the election. Adeboye made his postion known during a meeting of leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) held at the Redemption Camp.
The leaders of the two bodies had convened the meeting to pray for the country and for a successful general elections.
The meeting, however, turned out to be for a secret endorsement of Jonathan’s candidacy.
In attendance at the meeting were Adeboye, Bishop David Oyedepo of the Winners Chapel; Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, CAN President; Rev. Felix Omobude, PFN President; Pastor Paul Adefarasin, PFN Vice President; Pastor Wale Adefarasin of the Guiding Light Assembly and other key Christian leaders in the nation. Pastor Osinbajo was also at the meeting to seek their blessing to support him and the candidacy of Muhammed Buhari.
Pastor Paul Adefarasin was said to have broken the silence when he asked Adeboye who they should support since his ‘son’, Pastor Osinbajo is vying for the vice presidency with Buhari.
They wanted Adeboye to say something and Osinbajo was watching as he believed that Adeboye will certainly ask other leaders to endorse him, but he was disappointed. Adeboye was said to have told them that he is a man under authority and that since he is under the authority of CAN and PFN, whoever they endorsed, he would support and go with them.
