The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, clarified his decision not to deter Pastor Afolabi Olaoye from pursuing the Soun of Ogbomoso’s throne during an interdenominational thanksgiving service on Sunday. 

Adeboye stated that Olaoye’s destiny was to become a king, and he could not oppose the will of God.

Pastor Afolabi Olaoye, formerly a senior pastor in RCCG, has been selected and approved as the 21st Soun of Ogbomoso, set to receive his staff of office on December 19.

Addressing critics who questioned why he did not prevent Olaoye from vying for the traditional position, Adeboye explained, “To my critics, if I said No and God said Yes, whose word is the final, God, of course. So, I cannot stop him because Pastor Olaoye was destined to be a king even before he was born, and thank God it is coming to fruition.”

During his sermon, Adeboye, referencing Acts of Apostles Chapter 15 verse 18, advised the incoming traditional ruler to embrace the people and promote peace and unity in his community. Following the sermon, Pastor Adeboye anointed the King and his wife, praying for a peaceful and prosperous reign.

In response, Oba Olaoye expressed gratitude, acknowledging Pastor Adeboye as his spiritual role model and emphasizing the importance of unity and development in Ogbomoso. He believes it is a new era for the community.

 “Pastor Adeboye is my spiritual role model. He has been a father to me; it’s an unforgivable sin if anyone reports me to Pastor Adeboye.

“I am happy that the person who laid a hand on me to become a Pastor is the same, who anointed me when I became a King. To my people in Ogbomoso, let us work together, let us develop this land and let’s make this land a place, where our sons and daughters will be proud of,  I believe it’s a new dawn for Ogbomoso,” Olaoye stated.

Special prayers were offered for the royal father, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, and Nigeria by a group of clergymen, including Rev. Israel Akanji, Bishop Titus Olayinka, Archbishop Ayo Ladigbolu, Pastor J.S. Adegoke, Rev Solomon Isola, Prof. Nihinlola Emiola, Rev. Stephen Ayankeye, Bishop Ademola Moradeyo, Rev Johnson Adeniji, Prophet Akintola, and Baba Awoye, among others.
