The former general overseer of Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, Wilson Badejo has passed away at the age of 74.
Badejo who was the church’s general overseer between 1999 and 2009, died on Saturday, August 7, after a brief illness.
The national secretary of the church, Yomi Oyinloye who announced his death in a statement, had nothing but praises for the deceased as it called for prayers for the family he left behind.
“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 said.
“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.”
Oyinloye said the church was greatly saddened by the loss but encouraged members to take solace in the fact that Badejo lived a fulfilling, God-fearing and impactful life.
He said Badejo left behind an indelible mark in the heart of everyone who came his way. He called for prayers for the family of the deceased and the Foursquare Gospel Church.
This comes two months after the death of Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos.
