Leke Adeboye, son of the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday penned a note to “God” in celebration of his 40th birthday.
In the note posted to Instagram, Leke thanked God for being “partial” towards him.
“For I (Oluwagbemileke Adeboye) did not conquer the lands by my swords or actions, and I did not prevail by my own strength, but rather by your power, strength and good favour, for you were and always be partial towards me,” he said.
He has been sharing on Instastory congratulatory messages from members of the church.
In April, Leke, who is also a senior personal assistant to his father, came under criticism when he verbally attacked pastors who delivered sermons in their parishes on Sunday, April 3, after his father’s sermon, a day that is known as Thanksgiving Sunday and is reserved for Adeboye’s sermon.
He later apologised, saying he did not mean to insult anyone.
Leke noted that the disciplinary measures taken by the church against him was well received. “This period will be used to reflect and introspect,” he added.
