A leading Pentecostal church in the country, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has issued a directive compelling members intending to get married to subject themselves to what it called: “genital test.”

The directive, the church said, was intended as a measure against “the recurrence of cases of marital crises resulting from falsehood, especially in the case of undeclared or unconfessed reproductive/genital status.”

The church’s directive is contained in a document dated May 10, 2018, signed by Pator J. F. Odeola for the General Overseer.

The document labelled “memo,” from Assistant General Overseer (Admin & Personnnel), with reference: RCCG/PERS/IFO/AD/MENO/10/05/2018, has as subject: Directive on pre-marital examination.

The “memo” reads: “Calvary greetings in Jesus’ name.

“The Mission Authority has observed the recurrence of cases of marital crises resulting from falsehood, especially in the case of undeclared or unconfessed reproductive/genital status.

“We have the directive of the General Overseer to instruct the entire Mission’s outpost that forthwith, pre-marital medical examination for intending couples should also include genital test.

“Further, Provinces are requested to register with particular (trusted) government approved hospital for the various pre-marital examinations for intending couples.

“Remain blessed in this season of songs and victory in Jesus’ name, amen.”

Efforts by The Nation to get a clarification, as regard what the church’s definition of “genital test” implies, was not successful as known court’s spokespersons declined to comment on the issue.
