The funeral will be broadcast live on various media and digital platforms, he said.

According to Aboyeji, Badejo dynamically repositioned the church nationally and internationally for greatness.

He said: “Dr. Badejo’s leadership influence in the body of Christ transcends beyond Nigeria. A pragmatic and visionary leader.

“Our departed and dearly beloved father in the Lord was instrumental to many positive developments in the Foursquare Organisation: he was one of the pillars God used to lay a solid foundation for the development of the National Headquarters Church, Yaba (World Mission Centre) as well as the visioner of Mcpherson University located and operating at Seriki Sotayo, near our Ajebo Camp, Ogun State.”

An evening of tribute will be held at the church on October 6, the wake will follow the next day at the same venue while the funeral service on October 8 will be held at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
