All hell broke loose when a Redeemed Christian Church of God crusade flyer, was put out with picture of Fuji maestro, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, on it.
The controversial flyer would eventually result in the suspension of the pastor of the Lagos Province 20, Lagos Island Family.
Weeks later, the RCCG has come out to clear the air by revealing what really happened.
According to a source who spoke to ENCOMIUM Weekly, it was apparently a printer’s error.
“It was the printer that made that mistake, nobody instructed him to place pictures of Pasuma and other artistes on the flyer. More so, we had not even seen the flyer before it went viral on social media. I guess someone must have seen it with the printer and snapped it with a phone and put it on social media. As a matter of fact, the flyer was rejected and destroyed immediately, so it was surprising to now hear it was on the internet. The outreach will still hold as planned, but not with all the misleading information on the internet.”
On the suspension of the Pastor involved: “The only thing I can say is that, National (the Governing Council of The Redeemed Christian Church of God) has resolved the issue, Prof. (referring to Prof. (Pastor) Toyin Ogundipe) was not affected at all. He was our former Area Pastor as well as Zonal Pastor until March this year. Our area headquarter had been carved out of his area long before this issue came up. So, it does not have any connection with him at all.
“At the last Holy Ghost service in Camp, Prof. was among the pastors who ministered with Daddy G.O (referring to Pastor E. A. Adeboye, the general overseer), if he is truly suspended, you cannot see him on the altar. He is a revered man of God who enjoys the goodwill of the vast members of the church and the public.”
