Sanwo-Olu, Wike console Adeboye over son’s demise

THE Governors of Lagos and Rivers States, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Nyesom Wike have commiserated with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) following the demise of his son, Dare.

Sanwo-Olu in a statement issued today by his spokesman Gboyega Akosile expressed his heartfelt sympathies, urging the deceased family, friends, associates and entire members of RCCG to take the death in good faith.

“No doubt the death of a loved one is usually painful as it is irreparable but we must always take solace in God especially if the deceased had lived a good life, just like the late pastor Dare Adeboye.

“The pastoral and wise counsel of Pastor D as he was fondly called will be sorely missed by his family and the entire members of RCCG, especially in Eket, Akwa Ibom, where he played active roles as a cleric before he passed on.

“I sympathise with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, his wife, siblings and widow of the deceased and the entire members of RCCG. I pray that God will grant the late Pastor Dare Adeboye eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” Sanwo-Olu said.

On his part, Wike, through his Special Assistant Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said the people of Rivers join the Adeboye family and RCCG worldwide in mourning the loss of Dare, whose devotion to God and faith in Jesus Christ was phenomenal.

“On behalf of the Government and people of Rivers State, I wish to extend our deepest condolences and sympathy to Pastor Enoch Adeboye, his family and the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide for the irreparable loss of Pastor Dare Adeboye, who was a minister in the church,” he said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Adeboye’s family and the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide in this time of sadness.”

Dare was said to have died on Wednesday in his sleep in Akwa Ibom.
