Pastor Leke Adeboye, the Senior Personal Assistant to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has condemned himself for insulting pastors in the Church.
The preacher’s apology is coming hours after a post where he described some pastors of the Church as goats went viral on the internet.
Pastor Adeboye’s comment had caused outrage and received a series of backlash from members of the church and the general public.
The GO’s son had rebuked some RCCG pastors for preaching in their various churches after his father had delivered a sermon last Sunday.
Adeboye’s comment was, however, received with anger and trolls as netizens questioned his actions.
The cleric’s son, however, has apologized on his Instagram page over the statement.
He admitted he went too far with his statement even though he never meant to insult or malign clerics in the church.
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 emphasize was absolutely not intended to insult or malign.
“I also wish to apologize 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.”
