Leke Adeboye, son of the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God– Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday penned a note to “God” in celebration of his 40th birthday.
In the note posted to Instagram, Leke thanked God for being “partial” towards him.
“For I (Oluwagbemileke Adeboye) did not conquer the lands by my swords or actions, and I did not prevail by my own strength, but rather by your power, strength and good favour, for you were and always be partial towards me,” he said.
He has been sharing on Instastory congratulatory messages from members of the church.
In April, 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.
He later apologised, saying he did not mean to insult anyone.
Leke noted that the disciplinary measures taken by the church against him was well received.
“This period will be used to reflect and introspect,” he added.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) recalls that sometime April this year, the last son of Pastor Adeboye and Senior Personal Assistant of the General Overseer of the RCCG slammed pastors of the church who preached after his father had given the sermon of the day for Thanksgiving Sunday.
This was as Pastor Adeboye said he is still in doubt as to whether the general elections would hold in 2023.
However, Leke had apologized for calling some RCCG pastors ‘goat’.
Leke wrote: “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 retrospect. 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.”
