Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has described the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, as “the voice of peace and comfort in a troubled and edgy world.”Aregbesola gave this accolade in a message to commemorate his 76th birthday.He said the renowned preacher is a harbinger of hope to millions of souls across the world.
In a statement by his Media Adviser, Sola Fasure, he described Adeboye as a beacon of hope for the numerous hopeless souls.He commended him for reconciling the souls with God through his sermons and evangelical engagements all over the world.Aregbesola said only a few people are chosen by God for this kind of evangelical assignment in a generation.He added that such chosen few people are rare breed and special creation, who sparingly grace this earthly terrain.
According to him, Adeboye is an epitome of knowledge, deep faith and a messenger who spread the word of God across the globe untiringly, despite his graceful old age.Aregbesola said the arrival of the man of God at the threshold of 76 years is an august occasion, which is very special to his congregation across the globe.
“Some individuals, very few of them, are specially chosen by the creator to be a blessing to their generation.“Adeboye is a well educated man who gave up his brilliant academic career to do the work of God. He is a man of deep faith with apostolic fervour who has taken Christian evangelism to the nooks and crannies of this nation and the uttermost parts of the world.
“There is virtually no community in Nigeria where his church is not firmly established, or any part of the world where there is no parish of the RCCG.”“He is personally a very humble and meek man. He radiates love and deep affectation, always welcoming all and generous to a fault. He played fatherly role to all,” he said.
The governor described the cleric as a man of prodigious energy, adding that even at 76, he doesn’t appear to be slowing down, but his light continues to shine brighter and brighter.
The governor stressed that Adeboye’s accommodation knows no bound, transcending religious, ethnic and class lines. “I have found his calming words very assuring, even at my most challenging times, whenever I am privileged to meet him,” he said.
