Last night was the monthly Holy Ghost service by Redeemed Christian Church of God and there Pastor Adeboye seemingly waded into the Biodun Fatoyinbo matter.
Speaking on the Podium, Pastor Adeboye had some advice for young pastors, he advised them to flee from sexual sin and that they were also to run from temptation. He said that this is the reason he would never have a female personal assistant and that accusations of rape never go well for the accused.
Read his statement below:
I feel compelled to say some things to those that are young and up and coming ministers. What I want to say is from the Bible: 1. There is nothing hid that shall not come to the open or made manifest. Mark 4:22
2. Sooner or later, your sins will find you out if you continue in sin under the guise of grace. Numbers 32:23
3. Abstain from every appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22.
2 Timothy 2:22 When you find yourself facing youthful lust, flee; don’t say you’re highly anointed or something, ask Samson. You may say I’m old fashioned, I agree. I’ll never have a private secretary who’s a woman.
When a woman accuses you of something, nobody will listen to you whether you’re right or wrong; be wise! I’m old fashioned, but I’m still surviving since I was ordained; it’s better to be old fashioned & live than modern and die
While not mentioning Pastor Fatoyinbo’s name, it seemed pretty clear that this was what he was referring to.#

Busola Ddakolo meanwhile has finally filed a legal complaint against Pastor Fatoyinbo and now with that done, formal legal proceedings can now take place against the COZA pastor.
Generally, Pastor Adeboye doesn’t wade into scandals that do not involve him or his church, but as this particular scandal is one that affects the entire church in Nigeria, it’s only natural that a legend in that regard will have a word or tow to say about things.
