Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, over the death of his son, Pastor Dare.
In a condolence message, in Abuja on Thursday, Jonathan expressed sadness over the passing of the pastor, describing him as a much-loved clergyman.
The former president noted that the late man of God lived a life that was a pattern of good works and prayed to God to grant his soul eternal rest.
He said: “Though I never knew Pastor Dare personally, I have had cause to meet his father, Pastor Adeboye, and it would seem that the apple did not fall far from the tree.
“He was known to emulate the godliness and moral leadership that his father is well known for. We share in the grief that naturally comes when such a devout man passes on to eternal glory.”
Jonathan prayed to God to grant the family of the deceased and the RCCG ministry the fortitude to bear the loss.
Similarly, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki prayed for Pastor Enoch Adeboye, his family and the entire RCCG community.
Saraki prayed that the Almighty grants you the family all needed strength as they mourn.
