RCCG bans ‘Aso Ebi’ for church functions
The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has stopped its members from using compulsory uniform also known as Aso Ebi at church functions.
Pastor Mrs. Foluke Adeboye, wife of the General Overseer of the church, gave the order yesterday when she spoke at the church’s women’s meeting, part of the activities of its 65th annual convention of the church themed “Halleluyah.”
Pastor Mrs Adeboye said it was ungodly acts for some church leaders to compel their members to buy and wear a particular uniform during church events.
She said “There have been reports that some members of some parishes in the church that cannot afford to buy some of these Aso Ebi’s have been exempted from some church functions.
“Such un-Christianly act of keeping church members out of programmes because of Aso ebi, must never be heard of again among the women in the church.”
She added that those caught would be severely sanctioned.
“Aso Ebi which should ordinarily be for the family, must not be elevated to the point of making it to overshadow the spiritual life of the congregants,” she added.
