The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, on Thursday disowned text messages advising people not to wear red, blue, pink or purple.
In a Facebook post, Adeboye urged people to disregard the messages as they did not emanate from either him or the church.
A hoax message had circulated widely, claiming that Adeboye warned Nigerians against putting on any attire in these colours on Thursday.
But, the denial said the cleric never said any such thing.
It reads, “Please inform all your friends and family members that I, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, did not send any message out informing you not to wear a particular colour and do not have any issues with whatever colour. “No message stating you should not wear a particular color was ever authorized by The Redemption Camp or my office. Please be mindful and careful of erroneous messages.
“If you want a true change in your life be at The Redemption Camp, This Thursday at7 pm, Friday at 7 pm and Saturday at 7 pm. To ensure no one uses your blood for anything.”
The church began a weeklong programme marking its 60th anniversary on Monday.
