Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has called on Christian to be united irrespective of their denominations.
He spoke at the Chapel of Mercy, Dadin-Kowa, Jos, on Sunday.
The cleric said he had come to Jos to express his condolences to the congregation’s members and the family of the late Rev. Isaac Oyebamiji, the founder and senior pastor of Chapel of Mercy.
Adeboye expressed regret for being unable to visit shortly after Oyebamiji passed away and referred to the deceased as one of his spiritual sons.
He said, ”It took me this long to come for this visit because we had a close relationship with your late pastor for over 40 years.
”So, it has not been easy with me trying to accept the fact that he is no more, but I’m here today to condole and pray for his family and indeed all members of this congregation.
”The servant of God has finished his assignment on earth and has gone to be with his maker; ours is to live right so that we will meet him on the resurrection day.
”But I want to use this opportunity to call on Christians in Nigeria to be united in order to defeat the enemies of the nation,” he said.
He called on family members of the deceased to emulate his good ways and sustain his legacies.
In his response, Pastor Olutoyin Oyebamiji, wife of the deceased, appreciated Adeboye for the visit and said it was encouraging.
The RCCG GO was accompanied by his wife, Foluke.
Oyebamiji died in the United States in February following a brief illness. He was 64.
