According to Cable News, Obafemi’s appointment is in-line with the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council (FRC) for all registered churches and mosques.
Congratulating the RCCG leader on his decision, Atiku said “Pastor Adeboye is the kind of religious leader I pray that we see more of in Nigeria. He is a man beloved, and who loved one and all without discrimination.”
“Some of the most prominent personalities Nigeria has been blessed with have been those who learnt from the pulpit of Pastor Adeboye. A most recent example is our current Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo,” he added.
The former Vice-President also said that Nigeria needs more leaders like Pastor Adeboye.
Meanwhile, Governor Ayo Fayose has condemned the new law regulating the administration of Churches in Nigeria.
According to him, the new law led the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye to step down.
