…As Oba Olaoye Says He Will Be King To Christians, Muslims, Traditional Rulers
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Sunday, replied critics who queried him for not stopping Pastor Afolabi Ghandi Olaoye from vying for the position of his forebears in Ogbomoso.
Pastor Adeboye while speaking at Beulah Baptist Conference, Ogbomoso, venue of the interdenominational thanksgiving service for the New Soun said he knew pastor Ghandi was born to be king.
His words: “When he came to me to inform me about the development, I told him to go and pray, he came back and said he has not heard anything. I told him to go back and pray again and after a while he came back and told me, God has spoken. I have heard him loud and clear that I should go. It was then that I told him to go because it has been destined. I knew that long ago but I want God to speak to him directly.
“To my critics if I had said no and God says yes, whose word is the final, God of course. So, I cannot stop him because Pastor Ghandi was destined to be a king even before he was born and thank God it is coming into fruition.
When counseling the monarch, Pa Adeboye who took his scripture from the Book of Act 15:18 said the monarch should embrace people and promote peace and unity among his subjects.
After the sermon, Pa Adeboye anointed the king and his wife and prayed for his peaceful and prosperous reign as Soun of Ogbomoso.
While addressing the congregation, Oba Ghandi said “Pastor Enoch Adejare is my spiritual role model. He has been a father to me. It is an unforgivable sin if you report me to Pastor Adeboye. I don’t like people reporting me to Pastor Adeboye. We have gone to the whole world together and I have watched him closely and I see a genuine man of God.
“I am happy today that the person who laid a hand on me to become a pastor is the same who anointed me when I became a king.
“To my people in Ogbomoso, let us work together, let us develop this land and let’s make this land a place where our sons and daughters will be proud of, I believe it’s a new dawn for Ogbomoso.
“I will be the king to the Christians, Muslims and Traditional rulers. I will be a king to every son and daughter of this land , that is my strength and I believe that God will give me his mercy to lead his people. I want everybody in this land to pray for me.”
