Suspended RCCG Pastor, Iluyomade resigns

Must read

Suspended Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, formerly the Regional Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, City of David, Region 20, has stepped down from his pastoral role.

TREND reports that Iluyomade was suspended for three months last week for various allegations by members of the Parish.

The decision to resign follows his refusal to comply with a three-month suspension and an offer to relocate to another parish in Ebute Meta.

A Vanguard report noted that a source close to Pastor Iluyomade indicated that his resignation has been submitted to the RCCG governing council, although it has not yet been formally accepted.

“Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, the former Regional Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), City of David, Region 20, has resigned from his pastoral duties.

His resignation came after he refused to serve a three-month suspension and accept a transfer to another parish in Ebute Meta.

“Since he is currently serving a suspension, the governing council has not accepted his resignation. The council is not scheduled to meet until August, when the suspension will end. The church has specific exit procedures for pastors of his status.”

It was also gathered that a fraction of RCCG City of David members are encouraging Iluyomade to start his ministry.

Reliable information suggests that the Apapa Family, an influential group within RCCG, is making efforts to ensure Pastor Iluyomade establishes his ministry.

“The Apapa Family is known to work with government and public sector institutions on charity projects in healthcare, education, infrastructure, citizens’ welfare, and capacity building,” the source stated.

“Whether their intentions are self-serving, similar to how they influenced Pastor Ituah Ighodalo to resign and start his ministry, only God knows.”
