The former General Overseer (G.O) of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, Wilson Badejo is dead.
This was announced by the National Secretary of the church, Yomi Oyinloye, in a statement.
According to the statement, Badejo, who was the church’s G.O between 1999 and 2009, died at age 74 on Saturday, following a brief illness.
“He was a great achiever, an accomplished servant of God, role model, a bridge builder, mentor, teacher par excellence, an apostle and respected family man.
“Dr. Badejo served the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria in several ministerial capacities, crowning his stewardship at the apex as the General Overseer of the Church from 1999 for 2009.
“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 statement said.
Oyinloye said the church was greatly saddened by the loss but encouraged members to take solace in the fact that the deceased lived a fulfilling, God-fearing and impactful life.
He called for prayers for the family of the deceased as well as the Foursquare Gospel Church.
