President of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Nigeria and Overseas Pastor Segun Oladele on Saturday attended the burial of the founder of CAC Oke-Agbara Prophet Michael Olowere popularly known as Baba Automatic.
Speaking at the burial in Ibadan, Oladele said “Olowere has entered into his reward and rest”.
Oladele, who preached on the topic “Death of the Man of God” said God fixes the time and manner of death of every human.
He described the deceased as humility personified and someone who served God with all of his being, urging everyone to emulate Olowere’s virtues.
“He will be missed sorely not only in Christ Apostolic Church, but the body of Christ at large, as he was not after the mundane things of the world but in propagating the Gospel of Christ.
“Olowere’s name has been written in gold in the history of the church.
“Righteousness exalts a nation and the preachers are those who preached righteousness,” Oladele said.
He noted with concern that Nigeria in spite of being blessed is not where it should be presently.
Olowere’s first son Pastor Sam Olowere said his father was a man of God in character and sacrifice.
“In every area, he showed himself as one who was sent to fulfill his mandate and every single part of his life he used it for the ministry,” he said.
Other religious ministers present at the burial ceremony included Apostle Solomon Mustapha and Prophet Hezekiah Oladeji, the general evangelist, CAC Nigeria and Overseas.
Olowere died aged 100 in Oyo town. He was buried at a mausoleum built at CAC Oke Imole, Ashi in Ibadan.
