The Bishop of Egba Diocese, Rev E. Oludaisi Adekunle, JP, has described the late Ogboye of Egbaland, and Baba Ijo of Christ African Church Cathedral, Igbore, Chief Solomon Olufunso Akinremi, JP as a worker for God.

Rev Adekunle said this during the Service of Songs for the repose of Late High Chief Solomon Akinremi, by the Egba Day of Prayer Group, Improvement Society of African Church, and Bible Society of Nigeria, at his Sodubi Residence, Onikolobo, Abeokuta on Monday, 30 August, 2021.

The Egba Diocesean Bishop also said that it was good to work when one is supposed to, adding that late Chief Akinremi had lived a successful life because he utilised the opportunities he had in life for the things of God.

He also noted that it was not easy to head any section in Egbaland.

He commended the legacy left by the late Chief Akinremi, stating that he was one of the people that influenced him to be Chairman of Egba Day of Prayer Group.

According to him, Chief Akinremi strived to serve God even at his old age.

Rev Adekunle therefore described him as a lover of God and a patriot who loved God and loved Egbaland dearly.

He also said the late Chairman of Solomon Olufunso Akinremi & Sons (SOAS), contributed greatly to the development of Christianity in Egbaland.

He recalled that Chief Akinremi singlehandedly constructed the Egba Day Prayer House.

He also said his good works stand as a lifelong legacy for his family name.

The Egba Diocesean Bishop encouraged his children to follow in their father’s footsteps, adding that he had set a pace for them.

“Baba had a sense of responsibility for the things of God and was humble.” He added.

In a condolence letter to the family of the late Chief Akinremi, the African Church Improvement Society of Nigeria, described him as a leader who served diligently as the Group’s President General.

The Group also disclosed that late Chief Akinremi was conferred as Grand Patron of the Society in 2017 due to his laudable contributions.

The Society described him as a faithful servant, very humble, passionate about the family called African Church Improvement Society, Nigeria, and the African Church as a whole.

The Society further stated that his departure had created a big vacuum that only God can fill.

Meanwhile, the Burial arrangements of Chief S. O. Akinremi continues on Tuesday, August 31st, 2021, with a Service of Songs by Egba Christian Chiefs at Ake Cathedral, Ake Palace, Abeokuta by 4pm to 6pm.
