The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki has commiserated with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, over the death of his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.
In a condolence message, the governor said he was ‘deeply shaken’ by the death of Pastor Dare Adeboye, noting that he was an inspiration for the youth.
According to him, “I am deeply shaken to learn of the shocking passing of Pastor Dare Adeboye, at the age of 42.
“He was a promising young man, who worked dutifully in the Lord’s vineyard, bringing the message of salvation to young people in Nigeria and across the world.”
Obaseki continued: “Through God’s guidance and the able mentorship of our Daddy G.O., Pastor E. A. Adeboye, he provided a rallying point for youths and helped to inspire them for impactful living.
“Although his untimely passing is more than anyone can bear, we are consoled that he spent his life working for Christ and his eternal rest, which we all hope to attain, is assured in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“He will be remembered for his compassion, kindness and sense of duty to God and family.
I commiserate with Pastor Adeboye over Son’s death and also with the entire Adeboye family, friends and associates and pray that God will grant everyone the fortitude to bear this disheartening loss.”
METROWATCH is an online daily newspaper founded in October 2013 by a seasoned reporter, Collins Edomaruse. He had risen to the position of General Editor in his 18 years stint at THISDAY newspaper, an appointment he resigned on October 30, 2013 to pursue his online newspaper publishing dream. Prior to his appointment as the newspaper’s General Editor, he had served, at various times, as Editor, Nation’s Capital; Group News Editor, Associate Editor, and Deputy Editor at different times for the newspaper’s three titles – Daily, Sunday and Saturday.
Edomaruse had covered education, sports, energy, national security, defence and transport beats among others. As a defence correspondent, Edomaruse traversed the war zones of both Liberia and Sierra-Leone in the dark days of Charles Taylor and Foday Sanko as warlords, which earned him the sobriquet “General” by his colleagues in the newsroom.
METROWATCH will act as a catalyst in our debate and desire for a crime-free Nigeria and provide the much-needed platform for all, irrespective of social, religious or political divide, to express their views.
METROWATCH will strive to bring to the public domain issues of bad governance, dirty business, hostile neighborliness, security challenges and other crime issues that are always begging for attention in Nigeria.
We will pursue this course with every vigor in our drive for the TRUTH and FAIRNESS.
