When one is given the grace and privilege to live for 99 years, see many of life’s vicissitudes, live through both victory and vanquish, and then, get a chance to settle scores with your God at the cusp of death, I guess most of us will agree that’s one life well-lived. But, Daddy G.O, as he’s fondly called, has even taken this thought farther by declaring his assuredness that Mama HID is presently resting in God’s bosom.
The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, yesterday declared that he is confident that the matriarch of the Awolowo family, Chief (Mrs) Hannah Idowu Dideolu Awolowo, is resting with the Lord.
Adeboye, who spoke during a private prayer session with the family inside their Ikenne country home, said: “By the special grace of God and because of my interaction with Mama, I have no doubt at all that she is in heaven now.”
The prayer session which held at the Efunyela Hall and had in attendance family members, relations, friends and other well wishers.
Pastor Adeboye, who shared his experience with the audience on how he was privileged to confirm that Mama was resting in heaven, explained that he had a personal encounter with her two weeks before her death.
He said: “Before Mama passed on, she was making a request and I was contacted. I won’t go into details about the request but I was abroad and when I came back I saw her and we had a little discussion before she passed away. As a result of that I have no doubt that Mama is resting with the Lord.”
Hmmn, quite an epic ending; personally, the mantra remains as: Live, Let live, Love, Learn, Leave a Legacy, Lobatan
