Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife Pastor Dolapo Osinbajo on Monday attended a service of songs for Pastor Dare Adeboye.
The deceased was a son of the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
Prof Osinbajo, who is also a pastor with the megachurch, said the late Dare Adeboye lived a life filled with zeal, speed, and emphasized what was important and needed to be done at the right time.
Although the vice president was in attendance at the service of songs held at the Redemption Camp, his tribute was read by Pastor Bisi Akande, the pastor in charge of Lagos Region 35.
Describing the attributes of Pastor Dare, the vice president stated that “He understood the dynamics and urgency of reaching young people with the gospel, especially because of their fundamental role in the sustainable growth of the church of God.”
According to the vice president, Pastor Dare was in many ways, a representative of the future of Christian ministry, “a new generation birthed in a period of great turbulence in ideas and doctrines, a surfeit of distractions, but committed to ensuring that the unvarnished gospel is preached to that generation.”
He further went on to say that despite his position of privilege, Dare “was deeply and unpretentiously respectful, not just of elders and those in authority, but of everyone, even his subordinates.”
Osinbajo once again offered his condolences to Pastor Dare’s wife Temiloluwa; his children, Oluwatishe, Ireoluwa and Araoluwa; the deceased’s parents Pastors Enoch and Folu Adeboye, his siblings, family members, and the entire RCCG family.
Also present at the event were former Governors Gbenga Daniel and Olusegun Mimiko of Ogun and Ondo states respectively, wife of former Imo State governor Mrs. Nneoma Okorocha, president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria Bishop Wale Oke, and several other dignitaries.
