Leke Adeboye, the Senior Personal Assistant of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has apologized to pastors in the church for calling them “goats.”
According to The Nation, Leke chastised certain RCCG pastors who preached after his father’s speech at parishes across the country last Sunday.
On Thursday, the cleric’s son apologized on his Instagram page for the remark, which drew a lot of criticism from followers and church members.
The statement titled: ‘My sincere apology’ reads: “I wish to use this medium to tender my unreserved apologies on the statement made from my social media handle about some of our esteemed Pastors.
“The disciplinary measures taken by the mission is well received and this period will be used to reflect and introspect.
“I wish to crave your indulgence to please forgive my extreme statement which I wish to emphasise was absolutely not intended to insult or malign.
“I also wish to apologise profusely to the entire leadership and Pastors of our beloved Church who might have been hurt by this statement.
“I remain humbly yours in God’s love and mercies. Yours in His service, Leke Adeboye.”
