Pastor Enoch Adeboye sold helicopter over maintenance cost worth ₦123 million.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is said to have sold his helicopter with registration marking 5NEAA due to the high maintenance cost.

According to a news report saying that Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General oversee of the church RCCG had stated in 1981 as a 39 year old leader of the RCCG that the Church intended to plant Churches within 3 minutes driving distance in the developed world and 5 minutes walking distance in the developing world. And thus, it has led the Church to grow from 38 Churches when he stepped into office to over 40,000 Churches in the last 39 years and as old age finally arrives, the easy and sensible way to drive the continuing expansion/increase is to make use of an easy mode of transport to access the hinterlands, thus the purchase of the helicopter.

The helicopter, which was purchased in September 2020 to convey the Pastor and other officials of the church across the world for the preaching and evangelisation of the gospel, was however suspended from flying by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) in April 2021 over alleged expired documents and spare parts which needed to be replaced.

According to Church Gist, the total cost of maintaining the helicopter for a single month was about $300,000 (N123 million).

However, this made Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church to get rid of the helicopter. Church Gist tried to find out if Daddy G.O wish to get another one but did not get an affirmative response.

Also, It was gathered that Pastor Adeboye has resorted to using the helicopter belonging to Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church for his missionary travels.

"God showed me wings in April 1982 indicating that the ministry i was called to pastor will be operating with ‘aircrafts' and this has led the Living Faith Church to own a hangar to manage her aircraft in a way to further reduce the costs of running these aircraft", Oyedepo said.
