The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo has described the Late Archbishop Emmanuel Omolaja as a man of valour who stood firm and fair in the work of God.
In his royal message to the Council and Trustees as well as children of the late Archbishop, the Alake disclosed that he had known the late icon all his life, adding that he had attended the deceased’s Annual Carols of 9 Lessons right from 2005, when it was God’s time for him to anoint him as the Apex King of Egbaland.
Alake happily recalled that many Egba Community leaders had attended the late Primate’s proverbial Annual Carols of the 9 lessons.
Such Egba Compatriots included, Chief M. K. O. Abiola, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, and his Wife, Dr. Olufunso Amosun.
The Egba Paramount Monarch stated that the Late Patriarch strongly and rightly believed in the efficacy of prayers, which had worked wonders for many.
Oba Gbadebo also disclosed that the deceased left a most lucrative and successful profession of architecture, in a World Renowned Oil Company, for a call to the vineyard.
The Alake described the Late Iconic Christian’s action of abandoning a lucrative job for God’s Mission, as an eloquent testimony that deceased’s mission was to win souls for Christ, not for material gains.
He further disclosed the exit of Archbishop Emmanuel Omolaja might look to be painful but we should be consoled that his missionary work was a total success, legendary and enduring.
Oba Gbadebo condoled the Egba Nation for the demise of the great Spiritual and Iconic Egba Patriot, the Bab’Adura of Egbaland.
Alake enjoined all Egba Sons and Daughters to be consoled and rejoice in the Lord that “Alagba,” Primate Emmanuel Omolaja Aremu Olorunwo lived an accomplished spiritual life of a “Vicegerent,” and had spiritually touched lives and therefore had fulfilled reports of his mission on earth.
The late Primate and Archbishop of the Olorunwo Cherubim and Seraphim Church would be buried on Friday, 17th of September, 2021.
