It was reported that the Senior Personal Assistant of the General Overseer (Worldwide) of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), who is also the last son of the G.O, lambasted citizens of Osun State that voted for APC at the Saturday governorship election. Pastor Leke Adeboye said the claim is untrue.
The purported comment which went viral claim Leke Adeboye said:
“If you are in Osun and you voted for APC, to be honest, and this is being neutral o, you are a fool.
“The government of APC didn’t pay salaries for over two or three years. Apart from the train, what did you gain from the last three years? And please don’t tell me they built roads, that’s a standard.”
Reacting to the news when contacted by TribuneOnline, Leke Adeboye said he neither made such statement nor posted anything related to such comment on his social media handles.
“I have gotten a few calls and messages today (Monday) saying I’m trending on social media because someone claimed I posted up my view on the current elections in Osun State. All those claiming I posted up on my Instagram that APC are fools lied against me. Even, I immediately went to check my Instagram story (@lekeAdeboye) handle, in fear that I have being hacked, because the only message I posted is a prayer for the new week we are about to go into,” he said.
“I want people to make their verification and even check the whole page and confirm if there is anything relating to that. Don’t let fake news be the order of the day in our beloved country. I am not a politician and I do not belong to any political party. In fact, I did not participate in the election, so, why would I have condemned anybody or party over the election. I want to categorically inform the general public that I never made such statement or anything relating to that,” he concluded.
