The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has denied the rumour linking him with a claim that he has spoken with the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over the controversy generated by the second term re-election bid of Governor Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos state.
The Punch reports that Adeboye cleared the dust on Sunday, September 16, through his verified Twitter and Facebook account, adding that he has nothing to do with partisan politics in the state.
Legit.ng notes that Governor Ambode's second term ambition is currently in jeopardy after a fallout with his political godfather and former governor of the state, Asiwaju Tinubu.
Adeboye said he “has not and would not be involved in inter /intraparty politics in Nigeria and anywhere RCCG is present across the world.”
He, however, urged Nigerians to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVCs) so that they will be able to perform their civic right.
The tweet reads: "Pastor E.A Adeboye advises all well-meaning Nigerians just like him to get their PVCs and exercise their civic duty.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that there were indications that Tinubu was yet to back down from his decision to find a replacement for the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, ahead of the 2019 gubernatorial election.
According to the report, a last minute move made by Oba Rilwan Akiolu and Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi, to save Ambode from the looming mess didn't yield a positive result. In order to douse the tension coming out of the issue, Tinubu was reported to have been summoned by President Buhari to Abuja to plead on Ambode's behalf.
