The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has reacted to the call by the Osun State Lawmakers to end the feud between former Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’ and his successor, Adegboyega Oyetola ahead of the 2022 governorship elections in the State.
The Lawmakers visited the Man of God to proffer solution to the lingering crisis within the APC family in Osun where there is two formidable factions, Ilerioluwa and The Osun Progressives (TOP).
Associates of Aregbesola, the current Minister of Interior, operating under the aegis of The Osun Progressives (TOP) are currently locked in a supremacy battle with Oyetola for the soul of the party in the state.
Recall that sometime in 2020, the National Leader of the party, Senator Bola Tinubu; and a former Governor of Osun, Adebisi Akande, twice initiated peace moves that failed.
The APC caucus in the state House of Assembly taken aback by the ugly situation of things decided to pay homage to the respected man of God who also happens to be an indigene of the state.
According to a source who was privy to the arrangement, the visitation to Pastor Adeboye was led by the Speaker, Timothy Owoeye, and eight other members who met the clergyman sometime last week at the Redemption Camp.
The source said, “The visit was led by the Speaker and they sought Baba’s help in brokering peace between the duo. Peace is the only ingredient that can guarantee and sustain the development and prosperity of the state.”
The source however said Adeboye made it clear that he is apolitical and a father to all across party lines.
He said, “Baba made it clear that he has no preference for any of the political party but that it is biblical to play the role of a peacemaker and on that premise, promised to do something about it.”
