Lekan Babatunde, Rev. I.D Lawson, Dr. Obed, Dr. Moses Aransiola, and a few others. A lot of us are the products of your labour and faithfulness to God. Your ministry made significant impact on the lives of countless number of people. Today, earth has yielded to heaven’s craving. You are now joined with the great cloud. We celebrate your legacy sir, and we trust God to strengthen us to build on your legacies to keep the candle of truth! Rest on sir,” Arekere eulogized the late preacher.
