RCCG City of David undergoing audit as Iluyomade’s replacement resumes

 

Pastor Charles Kpandei, who replaced a former Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s City of David parish in Lagos State, Idowu Iluyomade, resumed at the parish on Sunday.

 

 

According to Church Times, on resumption, Kpandei first introduced himself to the church and then preached on the subject of heaven.

Kpandei urged members to welcome one another to church during the second service of the City of David.

He said, “Are you really happy to be in church today? For those of you who are just coming for the second service, it is important to tell you that I am called Pastor Charles Kpandei.

 

“You need that name because you are going to tell somebody that on behalf of Pastor Charles Kpandei, you are welcome to church today.”

Before going to the main message, he prayed that God would remember the City of David for good, quoting Nehemiah 13v14.

According to the report, the parish is being audited by a notable audit firm amid an alleged N320 million debt, following the suspension of Iluyomade on June 1, 2024.

 

 

Iluyomade was suspended for three months by the church’s Governing Council after a panel was constituted to investigate the allegations against him and the parish.

He was asked to resume at the church’s headquarters after the suspension.

 

 

 

 

The embattled pastor, fondly called PID, received a letter of his suspension two weeks ago and was immediately replaced by Kpandei of the church’s Resurrection Parish Region 11.

Iluyomade, who is the Special Assistant to the RCCG General Overseer on Christian Social Responsibility, has been in the eyes of the storm following the elaborate 60th birthday of his wife, Siju, shortly after the death of the then Chief Executive Officer of Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe, who was a prominent member of his church.

PUNCH Online had gathered that the pastor was suspended on two issues bordering on the audit of the church and the alleged resistance by the pastor to be transferred from the parish.

However, a source in the church who prefers to be anonymous told Church Times that the parish is currently being audited by an audit firm which is not an RCCG financial and audit practice.

The source added that the audit was necessary because RCCG auditors did not audit most of the provinces under the Apapa family.

 

 

 

“Iluyomade, the erstwhile pastor of the church, was suspended on June 1 following complaints and allegations against him. He was asked to resume at the church’s headquarters.

“The parish is currently being audited by KPMG, which is not an RCCG financial and audit practice. It was necessary to get an external auditor because before now, most of the provinces under the Apapa Family were not audited by RCCG auditors, ” the source noted.

During Sunday’s church service on June 9, one of the pastors made the announcement, stating that the church paid about N15 million for the construction of the Trinity Tower between June 1 and 8.

The pastor, however, told the congregation that the parish had an outstanding N320 million debt, which was indicated in the financial sheet displayed on the screen.

Joshua on verge of breaking Fury record

Published

Anthony Joshua is on track to break Tyson Fury’s British attendance record with his upcoming world title fight against Daniel Dubois.

Joshua will challenge Dubois for the IBF belt on September 21 at Wembley Stadium, with promoters expecting over 100,000 fans to attend.

Fury set the British attendance record in April 2023 when 94,000 spectators packed into Wembley to see him knock out Dillian Whyte. Promoter Frank Warren, speaking on talkSPORT, expressed confidence that the upcoming bout will surpass that figure.

“Oh, it’s massive. I mean, we will be applying to increase the capacity like we did last time when Tyson Fury fought against Dillian Whyte. And I think we’ve got it, I think we will probably break that record. So, it’s really looking good,” he said.

 

 

Joshua, 34, is no stranger to huge sell-out stadium shows, having drawn over 90,000 fans at Wembley in 2017 when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko. He has also attracted 75,000 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium and another 62,000 at Tottenham’s football ground.

 

 

However, his last two bouts took place in Saudi Arabia, where he secured knockout wins over Otto Wallin and ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou.

Warren acknowledged the challenge Joshua posed but remained optimistic about Dubois’ chances.

 

 

 

“A lot of people are making Joshua a favourite, and they’re saying AJ is a big puncher and so forth and I hope he comes out and comes to fight because if he lets those big punches go I know that will leave him exposed. If Daniel clips him, it will knock him out. I think Daniel is the bigger puncher,” Warren said.

“I genuinely think that Daniel can win this, he’s a young man, he’s fought better opposition in his last three fights than AJ has. And by the way, AJ has looked good in his last few fights but not against as good opposition as what Daniel has been in with.”

Speaking basically about the revelation,he maintained that their aim is to cause chaos, restiveness and ultimately fuel crisis in the Nigerian nation “God revealed to me that Northern leaders and elders are are planning to instigate and sponsor protests against the government of Tinubu,they want to use it to destabilise and disrupt his government;they should desist from doing that if they don’t want the wrath of God to come upon them because God is the one that made him the president of Nigeria”.

He maintained that the North has benefitted more from the unification and togetherness of Nigeria and should desist from causing problems because someone from another region is in power “to be very candid and precise,the North has benefitted immensely from the oneness of Nigeria,they shouldn’t try to disrupt the peace of the nation because they’re not in power now, whatsoever problem we are facing in Nigeria at the moment is temporary,interim and
provisional as the president is working assiduously to better and put smiles on the faces of Nigerians”.
