RCCG pastor speaks on his task as the Eze Aro of the Arochukwu ancient kingdom
Pastor Oji, who is the Eze Aro designate, is a member of the lineage that produces the Eze Arochukwu royal family, in Abia state.
In an interview with The Nation, on Thursday, November 9, Pastor Oji promised to lead the people of Arochukwu with the fear of God, adding that the Arochukwu Ancient Kingdom under his watch would witness tremendous change.
Asked if his pastoral calling would not clash with the cultural belief of the Aro kingdom, the Eze Aro designate said:
“We have to separate the religion and culture as there’s no conflict between both. While we preserve our culture, we ought to also separate our culture from idol worship and I will exercise the kingship to all Aro and not to a certain few.”
Meanwhile, Eze Aro is one of the revered traditional stools in Igbo land because of the significance of the stool to the Aro kingdom and its historical value to the Igbo race.
What Pastor Adeboye told me, Prince Olaoye reveals
Olaoye earlier opened up about what the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, told him about becoming Soun of Ogbomoso.
The governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde, on Saturday, September 2, approved Olaoye as the new Soun of Ogbomoso months after the kingmakers presented his name.
Speaking after he became the choice of the kingmakers, Pastor Olaoye noted that he had personal reservations about the ancient throne. He noted that Adeboye advised him not to fight what he was born for.
