The Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria has announced that its former General Overseer (G.O), Dr Wilson Badejo, has passed at aged 74.
The National Secretary of the church, Rev. Yomi Oyinloye, said in a statement that Badejo, who was the church’s G.O between 1999 and 2009, died on Saturday after a brief illness.
“He was a great achiever, an accomplished servant of God, a role model, a bridge builder, mentor, teacher par excellence, an apostle and respected family man. He was a man of many parts who was able to unlock socio-cultural gateways, and in the process successfully endeared several friends and loved ones from all walks of life across the divide,” the church said.
Oyinloye said that the church was greatly perturbed by the loss but encouraged members to be consoled in the fact that the late G.O. lived a fulfilling, God-fearing and impactful life.
According to him, Wilson Badejo left behind an indelible mark in the heart of everyone who came his way.
Oyinloye called for prayers for the family of the deceased and the Foursquare Gospel Church in this trying time.
