Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Youths Centre played host to dignitaries from all walks of life who came to pay their last respect to Senior Pastor Olalekan Aruna.
Aruna died on Monday August 9, 2021, at 58 and was buried last Friday, at the Youth Centre, Redemption Camp, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The burial witnessed a rain of tears from family, church members, friends and well wishers, who said he touched their lives while he was alive.
The wife, Iretiola Aruna and the children thanked everyone as they bid the husband and father farewell.
Some of the dignitaries who eulogised the deceased cleric said he was a silent achiever who does not make noise in everything he does for people in his families, friends, House of God, Nigeria and globally.
Professor Dele Balogun, Pastor in charge of Region 13, eulogised the virtues of the late pastor, describing him as a soldier of Christ and a giver.
Pastor Balogun in his sermon urged everyone at the venue of the funeral to empty themselves before their time comes.
“Everyone of us are given different talents by our creator, we should all impact the world with the gift our creator gave us. Late Pastor Olalekan used what God gave him to bless those who came across him while on earth. We should also do the same.
“He was a gentleman of God, very committed to the service of the Lord, his life was excellent and he was a true Christian.”
The daughter of the late cleric, Fiyinfolu Aruna, speaking said, “You taught me to stand on my own, taught me how to stand up for myself and never let anyone talk down on me. Because of you my daddy, I am the lady I am today, losing you was not only a loss to my mummy, my siblings but a great loss to humanity. I am still in shock but my greatest comfort is that you are chilling in your huge mansion in heaven.”
