Following the retirement of Pastor E.A Adeboye as the General Overseer of RCCG Nigeria, we bring to you the list of the longest serving General Overseers in Nigerian churches. It has been discovered that Pastor Adeboye retired as result of the Financial Reporting Council Of Nigeria (FRCN) corporate governance code. The code requires heads of all registered churches, mosques and other non-profit organisations to serve a maximum of 20 years in office and thereafter hand over to someone from outside their families.

There are many general overseers in Nigeria that have stayed beyond the statutory 20 years. In this list of the Longest Serving General Overseers In Nigerian Churches, we will bring to your knowledge these general overseers, their churches and their duration in office so far.
