Leke, son of Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has apologised for calling a pastor a “goat”.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, he had slammed a pastor for preaching after his father’s close-out sermon on Sunday.

“Why would you preach another sermon after Daddy GO has just finished preaching. You’re not a son. You’re a goat, sir. Next thanksgiving service, just do altar call, then thanksgiving,” he had written.

The development had generated criticism on social media, with many disapproving of his choice of words.

In a statement released on his Instagram page on Thursday, Adeboye said he had received disciplinary measures from the church over the matter, and promised to use “this period to reflect and introspect”.

He also sought the forgiveness of the entire leadership and pastors of the church.

“I wish to use this medium to tender my unreserved apologies on the statement made from my social media handle about some of our esteemed pastors,” he wrote.

“The disciplinary measures taken by the mission [are] well received and this period will be used to reflect and introspect.

“I wish to crave your indulgence to please forgive my extreme statement which I wish to emphasise was absolutely not intended to insult or malign.

“I also wish to apologise profusely to the entire leadership and pastors of our beloved church who might have been hurt by this statement.”
