This is a submission of one of the church members named Akinyele Emmanuel under one of the stories concerning the Oshoffa’s widows, children’s meeting with the BoT a couple of days back.
“The value of leadership is by example, after seeing various comment on the issue, it becomes important that we must accept that majority of our elders have failed the church in term of evolution and development since Papa demise in 1985.
With the brief history that papa told as the beginning of the church, constitution showed that his family can’t be isolated from the church. He owned the church and his family has the fundamental right to know how the church is been run. Obviously Papa made some minor mistakes, in my own opinion, by marrying many wives and large numbers of children but if the BOT has vision and structure this issue will not have been a national debate.
I believe people know that RCCG still pays the family of the founder some money for the up-keeping of themselves. It’s shameful that BOT is saying the committee use money to re-build collapsed fence/ So the financial department in Ketu don’t have plan of supplementary budget?
Another issue was the instruction that the Pastor gave Sup. Evang Pius an instruction and he chose not to carry out the order, it shows that the Pastor doesn’t have authority over some ‘cabal’ in Ketu.
On the 70th anniversary, the church has every right to celebrate in term of spiritual and committed member but not corrupt elders; but the church doesn’t have anything to celebrate since 1987 in term of development both in human capital or modern value, is the abandoned building in Ketu, Makoko e.t.c.?
Ebenezer Oshoffa was a Snr.Evang at CCC Ire-arkari parish Isolo as at 1984, so Papa Oshoffa also built the church around his son during his life time, you can’t set up a committee and place such an individual under someone of low cadre, we should all embrace peace and stand for equality.
