Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the RCCG general overseer, Adeboye, on Friday night, May 7, spoke on the demise of his son.
Preaching at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost service, the pastor urged the worshippers to always give thanks rather than blame and question God.
“Whatever we have is given to us by God, be it wealth, wife, husband, children etc and if it got taken away by God, all we can do is give God glory for actually giving us the privilege to enjoy those wealth or kids temporarily and it is not for us to complain, blame and question God.”
