The late icon who slept in the Lord on Monday July 27, 2020 at age 69 was laid to rest at his residence in Ibadan, Oyo State on Friday September 18, 2020.

Family, friends and sympathizers gathered to give late Pastor Akpan the last respect at a glorious Thanksgiving Service held for him at CAC Oke-Ibukun Oke Ado DCC headquarters in Ibadan.

The programme had in attendance the wife of the President of CAC Worldwide, Mrs. Victoria A. Akinosun, wife of CAC General Secretary, Mrs. Fidelia Emmanuel Mapur, wife of Finance Director, Mrs. Omitinde, DCC Superintendent of Oke Ado DCC, Pastor G.S.

Akinloye, Superintendent of CAC Temidire Onajimi Zone, Pastor Ayo Daramola and wife of Transfiguration Zonal Superintendent, Mrs. Marian Odejobi, among others.

While ministering at the programme on the topic "Pastor Akpan our Jehoiada", the Superintendent of Yaba DCC, Pastor S.E.A. Oludare said same way Jehoiada was directing the affairs of King Joash was the same way Late Pastor Akpan guided many people to fulfill divine purpose, stating that he guided many people to make sure they didn't go against the will of God.

He said Jehoiada was instrumental to King Joash's marrying a good wife, adding that Pastor Akpan guided many people to martial fulfillment.

According to him, Jehoiada was a very obedient servant same way Pastor Akpan was obedient to the church authority, saying he never heard of him disobeying the church authority.

Pastor Oludare also said that Jehoiada and King Joash kept good record of temple fund, saying same thing was applicable to Pastor Akpan who he said made sure financial records of the church were kept and money were judiciously used.

He added that "Jehoiada made sure fire on the altar was not quenched. Even on the sick bed, Baba Akpan was still praying. He was a prayer warrior and was very humble. 

Pastor Oludare urged the family of Pastor Akpan not to turn away from the  truth. He said the family should continue to speak the truth because that is what Pastor Akpan was known for.
