G.O’s Profile

Rev Sam Aboyeji was elected the fifth general overseer of the church which started in Nigeria in 1955.

Born on December 26, 1960, Aboyeji retired in March 2010 from Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd (SPDC) to become a full-time minister of the church.

“The new General Overseer has been the Senior Pastor of the church’s Olu of Warri’s Palace since 2001 and the Warri District Overseer/Mid-West Region Coordinator since 2006 and 2011 respectively where he was rated the best District Overseer of the church for three consecutive years,” Ugbaja said.

“He is also a member of the Board of both the Home and Foreign Missions and the National Executive Council of the church. He joined the Foursquare Church in 1988 and served the movement in various leadership capacities before he was ordained a minister of the church in 2001.

“Rev. Samuel Aboyeji started his working career with the premier stockbroking firm in Nigeria, the Nigerian Stockbrokers Limited (NSL), a subsidiary of NAL Merchant Bank Plc (now Sterling Bank Plc) from 1987 to 1992 where he trained as a stockbroker and licensed as an authorized dealing clerk of the Nigerian Stock Exchange in 1989.

“He left Nigerian Stockbrokers Ltd (NSL) to join Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd (SPDC) (Corporate Treasury) in 1992 as an Investment Analyst with responsibility for money and capital market investments of the Pension Fund.

“He was a pioneer staff of Shell Trustees Nigeria Limited where he had responsibility for building and managing its capital market portfolio until his transfer to the Community Relations department of SPDC in Warri in the year 2000.”

Ugbaja said that expectations are high from the church members and the Christian community that Aboyeji will build on the achievements of the church’s past leaders, particularly the work of Felix Meduoye, the outgoing general overseer.
