Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday paid condolence visits to the families of the late Mohammed Fawehinmi and the late former general overseer of Foursquare Gospel Church Wilson Badejo.
Prof Osinbajo visited both families in Lagos, according to a statement by his spokesman Laolu Akande.
At the Yaba residence of the Badejos, the vice president, who was received by Yinka Badejo, described the late cleric as “an exceptional man of God.”
He said Badejo was a promoter of the gospel who worked for both the physical and spiritual transformation of societies.
Speaking of him, Osinbajo said, “He was certainly a man of integrity, a man who served God with all his strength and a man who truly loved God and the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
At the Ikeja residence of the Fawehinmis, Osinbajo met with the mother of Mohammed, Ganiyat Fawehinmi, and prayed for God’s comfort for her and the entire family.
He described the late Mohammed Fawehinmi as “one of us,” being a progressive and protector of the poor and less privileged, saying, “the late Mohammed continually identified himself with the progressives and did not diminish what concerned his father during his lifetime.”
