Snr. Pastor of COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo steps down

0

The Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) worldwide, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, has stepped down.

The pastor said the decision to step down follows spiritual counsel from Christian leaders and spiritual mentors.

Recall that Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola Dakolo has disclosed how the pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, popularly known as COZA raped her at 17. The mom of three revealed this to Chude Jideonwo, a Nigerian lawyer, journalist and media entrepreneur in a now-viral video.

The Full Statement by the Senior Pastor Reads;

The past few days have been very sobering for me. I have taken time to pray and seek spiritual counsel from Christian leaders around the world who feel very concerned about the ongoing reports in the media. I have solicited their guidance on actions I should take that are honouring to our Lord Jesus Christ and the work He has called me to do.

Drawing from their counsel and that of the leadership of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly and owing to my love for God’s work and the sacred honour of my calling, I have decided to take a leave of absence from the pulpit of the church.

Although it would break my heart to tatters to stay a day without doing ministry I believe it is the right thing to do at this time. It is in the interest of the flock of Christ that issues concerning me do not become a distraction to their worship of their Lord.

This step enables me to submit to the concerns of my spiritual mentors as they consider all the issues that have been raised against me.

My confidence in the Lord remains unwavering. Though, I do not understand all that is happening, I trust the Lord to lead and guide me one step at a time. Kindly pray for me and the congregation of COZA as we seek the face of the Lord during these turbulent times.

Thank you and God bless you.
