Bola Tinubu had decided to stop Ambode’s bid for a second term in office by replacing him with Babajide Sanwoolu, this led to an alleged phone conversation between Pastor Adeboye and Tinubu, in which the clergyman begged Tinubu not to dump Ambode.
But in a statement issued on Pastor Adeboye’s social media accounts, Adeboye has denied ever making the call. He said:
“Our attention has been drawn to news making the rounds from dailies especially the New Telegraph that Pastor E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the RCCG had a recent phone conversation with the Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
“We would like to inform the general public that this is false and Pastor E.A Adeboye has not and would not be involved in inter/intra party politics in Nigeria and anywhere RCCG is present across the world. Pastor E.A Adeboye advises all well meaning Nigerians just like him to get their PVCs and exercise their civic duty.
“God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
