The new appointments are part of the restructuring of the church in compliance with the Financial Regulations Council stipulations.
The church leader made the announcement at the organisation's Annual Ministers Thanksgiving held on Saturday, January 1, 2017, at Shimawa, Ogun State.
Before the appointment, Obayemi was formerly a deputy in charge of the church's finance and a governing council member.
Nigeria's Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, who is a strong member of the church, was also present at the meeting.
Other developments include the appointment of Pastor J.F. Odesola as the church's Special Assistant on Administration and Personnel, while Pastor J.A. Adeyokunnu was made treasurer.
According to The Cable News, the appointments are part of RCCG's compliance with the new legal requirements set up by the Financial Regulations Council (FRC) for all registered churches, mosques, and CSOs.
