The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has described the sudden demise of Prophet Temitope Balogun as an eclipse in God’s vineyard.
Adams who described the death of T.B Joshua as a rude shock likened the deceased man of God to an “Iroko” tree that gave shelter to many without asking for anything in return.
Adams, the leader of the Odua People’s Congress, OPC and the late T.B Joshua hailed from the Arigidi-Akoko community in Akoko North West Area of Ondo State.
The Ondo State-born Televangelist was reported to have given up the ghost on Saturday night shortly after concluding a church programme.
Nigeria should use traditional method to fight insecurity – Gani Adams
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi said it was really devastating to hear such sad news about his brother and kinsman breaking like a wildfire.
While stating that the man of God has found favour in spreading the Gospel of God through his ministry, Adam emphasized that the clergy, who lived and died for God was a complete definition of generosity and philosophy.
“He was very humble, gentle and generous to a fault. His large-heartedness knows no tribe, colour, ethnicity, language or religion. He was simply a winner of souls even spreading beyond the shores of Nigeria.
The OPC leader further stressed that T.B Joshua through his ministry opened a new vista in religious tourism in the country which he said earned Nigeria a lot in terms of foreign exchange from his accommodating spirit.
“With his death, there had been an eclipse in God’s vineyard.
“Egbon lived a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.”
