The new General Superintendent of Assemblies of God Church, Rev. Chidi Okoroafor is set to flush out sacked General Superintendent, Rev. Paul Emeka from the church’s national secretariat in Enugu. Rev. Paul Emeka sacking was affirmed by the Supreme Court recently. Before now, the leadership crisis tore the church into two factions.
Several attempts to flush out Rev. Emeka Paul from the secretariat in the past resulted to violent clashes. However, the new General Superintendent, Rev. Chidi Okoroafor disclosed that: “We have informed the relevant bodies. We are a law-abiding people; so, we are going to follow every necessary procedure to recover the secretariat.”
“I also want to appreciate the judiciary; this judgment has generated more confidence in the judiciary. In the coming days, the leadership is going to meet and look at the judgment and roll out a plan going forward. It is not about the victor and the vanquished it is about the church. What happened was that Satan came to distract us.”
“We still extend a generous olive branch to the few who were sincerely deceived, to the pastors who were deceived, to return to the church. The Assemblies of God is one by the grace of God. In the coming days, we shall decide on all the issues. There will be wide consultations with the executive committee and the legal team.”
