Retd Superintendent of Itire DCC Pastor Adeoye preaches at Late Janet Olukoya funeral, admonishes people to live righteously




The former and retired DCC Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Itire Districts Coordinating Council (DCC), Pastor Michale A. Adeoye has admonished people to live righteously.



Pastor Adeoye said this while ministering at the funeral service of Janet Olukoya, mother of the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Prayer Ministries held at MFM international headquarters, Onike-Yaba, Lagos.


Late Janet Olukoya died on 31th March, 2019.


The cleric noted that every man is afraid of death because they are not prepared, adding that everyone should learn from the lifetime of the deceased, late Janet Olukoya.



He also appealed to the Governors and politicians present to fulfill their campaign promises.


“You need to ask yourself how your end will look like because whatever has a beginning must have an end.


“You need to understand that this world is temporary. You came to this world as a privilege. That is why you need to think about your responsibilities on earth and the day of reckoning.


“Mama’s lifetime teaches us a lot which we need to learn from. If you are at a position today, always remember you will become an ex tomorrow.


“As a politician, you should always create time to serve and worship God. Do not abuse your office and God will guide you to achieve your programmes,” he added.


Dr. Olukoya described his late mother to be industrious, compassionate and humorous.


He described the deceased as a perfect example of a ‘sweet mother’.


“To live in the heart we leave behind is not to die. Mama Indo as she is fondly called would forever live in our hearts and would certainly be sorely missed.


“She did not joke with Church service. Mama was an enigma. Her resolute spirit is worthy of emulation.


“Our family was poor but mama was determined that her children will not starve,” he said.


Also in her tribute, the deceased’s daughter, Funmi Olowoake, described her late mother to be supportive and caring, adding that she brought her children up in a Godly way.


“I had felt so comfortable with her being around that I never imagined there will be a time I will not see her again.


“She was what I would call my guardian angel. She was an exceptional woman.”


Wife of the General Overseer, Pastor Shade Olukoya, gave account of the first day she met her later mother in-law.


She described the deceased as a no- nonsense woman and tough, noting she united her extended family with true love, adding that she is honoured to be her daughter in-law. (The Nation)
