Leke Adeboye, son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Pastor E.A Adeboye, has tendered a public apology to the leadership of the church days after he called erring pastors of the church ‘goats’.
It can be recalled that Leke sparked outrage on social media a few days ago after he lambasted RCCG pastors who preach their own messages after his father had preached his sermon during the church’s monthly thanksgiving service.
The clergyman who reportedly faced a 3-man panel over the post has now come out to publicly tender an apology for his comment. He apologized to all pastors hurt by his statement, adding that his words were not intended to insult or malign anyone.
“My sincere apology, 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. I wish to crave your indulgence to please forgive my extreme statement which I wish to emphasise was absolutely 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. I remain humbly yours in God’s love and mercies. Yours in His service.” His post reads.
