Wild outrage has greeted the comments of Leke Adeboye, the son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who called pastors of the church goats.
Leke had slammed pastors who preach follow up messages after his father would have finished preaching on thanksgiving Sundays.
Daily Report Nigeria can recall that every first Sunday of a new month is a thanksgiving Sunday in the RCCG, with satellite churches expected to link up with the headquarters for the day’s only sermon.
However, some pastors have been found preaching a follow up message after the GO’s message.
Pastor Leke took to his Instagram account to call out the erring pastors, referring to them as goats.
“Why would you go and preach another sermon after Daddy G.O. had just finished speaking and preaching.
“You are not a son, you are a goat sir. Next Thanksgiving service, just do an altar call, then Thanksgiving,” Leke posted.
His outburst didn’t go down well with many Nigerians who have since called for his suspension from ministry.

“#rccg should suspend Leke Adeboye for calling ordained pastors #GOAT. What a gut,” @ollynetworker said.
“That’s very rude of you, Leke Adeboye! You are the goat here,” @Joanna8214 tweeted.
@TomisinAmokeoja said, “Two wrongs don’t make a right, Leke Adeboye calling pastors goat was way overboard. Really leaves much to be desired. Always been controversial though. I wonder how he would have reacted if he was the G.O.”
@CeciliaOkoroma said, “This is simply not too nice a statement from ‘man of God’ and in particular, son of G.O RCCG,” she tweeted.
