Reports had emerged that the pastor is in talks with Tinubu to lobby for the governor against party opposition for his second term bid.
Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has denied lobbying for Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, who seems to have fallen out of the goodwill of the National Leader of the All Progressives Party (APC).
Reports had emerged that the pastor was in talks with Tinubu to lobby for the Governor against party opposition for his second term bid.
However, the RCCG General Overseer took to Twitter to deny the report, stating that he had no such engagement with Tinubu and does not intend to interfere.
He said: Our attention has been drawn to news making the rounds from dailies especially the New Telegraph that Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the RCCG had a recent phone conversation with the Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
“We would like to inform the general public that this is false and Pastor E.A Adeboye has not and would not be involved in inter/intraparty politics in Nigeria and anywhere RCCG is present across the world.
“Pastor E.A Adeboye advises all well-meaning Nigerians just like him to get their PVCs and exercise their civic duty. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria."
