Leke Adeboye apologises for calling RCCG pastors goats

Leke Adeboye

Leke Adeboye, son of the general overseer of the church Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has apologised for calling some of the church’s pastors goats.

Leke, who is also a senior personal assistant to his father, came under criticism when he verbally attacked pastors who delivered sermons in their parishes on Sunday, April 3, after his father’s sermon, a day that is known as Thanksgiving Sunday and is reserved for Adeboye’s sermon.

“Why would you go and preach another sermon after Daddy GO had just finished speaking and preaching. You are not a son, you are a goat sir. Next Thanksgiving service, just do altar call, then Thanksgiving,” Leke wrote on Instagram.

Despite deleting the post, several RCCG members flocked to his Instagram page, urging him to apologise.

Bolu Olagodo wrote on QedTV YouTube page, “As a member of RCCG, the action of Leke being the biological son of daddy GO has become unbearable and the truth is that so many people have been suspended or reduced from their position for doing less of the act of Leke.”

On Thursday, April 7, however, Leke issued an apology on Instagram, saying he did not mean to insult anyone.

“I wish to use this medium to tender my unreserved apologies on the statement made from my social media handle about some of our esteemed pastors.

“The disciplinary measures taken by the mission is well received and this period will be used to reflect and introspect,” he said.

Leke added that his “extreme statement” was not “intended to insult or malign.”

“I also wish to apologise profusely to the entire leadership and pastors of our beloved church who might have been hurt by this statement,” he said.
