A former pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Bankole Solomon, has criticized the General Overseer of the church, Pastor E A Adeboye, for allowing Politicians i.e President Jonathan, into their annual RCCG Holy Ghost Congress and turning it into a political congress.

According to a statement released by Bankole who said he left the church as pastor in 2010 but still worships there, the church programme has now turned to a supermarket where charlatans and political opportunists come shopping.

He questioned why President Jonathan should be allowed to stand on their Once sacred alter and speak deceitfully and indirectly campaign for 2015 during a spiritual gathering.

Read His Full Statement Below!

“I know this post will attract a sharp condemnation because I worship in RCCG and I was once a pastor before I resigned voluntarily because of rights violations in the name of religion.

I resigned in December 2010 but I am still worshipping there as an ordinary member. So, whatever I have here is without prejudice.

“Holy ghost congress of our great church is now a political congress where all shades of corrupt leaders will mount our altar to fool Nigerians on what they will do.

“Holy Ghost congress is now a supermarket where all kinds of people like charlatans and political opportunist come shopping turning God to father Christmas to give them end of the year bonus.

“Jonathan was even there turning our once sacred altar to political podium talking deceitfully and indirectly campaigning for 2015.

My question is this? On what ground was president Jonathan allowed to speak to people. Is he a pastor? Because the gathering is purely a spiritual gathering and event.

“I’ve been a pastor in Redeemed for the past 10 years and I’ve not got any opportunity to sit on dat altar not to talk of holding mic. If because Jonathan is a President and he is recognized, it means some are more equal than others.

“Immediately I left camp on Saturday morning, I looked at the camp very well because I know that would be the last time I will set my foot to that Eagle Square called Redeemed camp.”

    it so obvious that you resign from the call of God just because you were not given the opportunity to hold mic or stand at the altar to speak , this is an indication that you are a wolf on sheep clothing, pls sir rethink and Go back to God and stop insulting the holy place of God
