Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo was not only a guest but also a preacher at the Love of Christ Generation Church (Cherubim and Seraphim), Oniru, Lagos, on Sunday, September 4, 2022.
The thanksgiving service, which drew many dignitaries, commemorated the church’s first anniversary as well as Reverend Esther Ajayi’s 15 years in ministry.
Obasanjo cited the Biblical experience of Joseph in prison, who interpreted the dreams of the Pharaoh and some of his top aides, in his sermon titled ‘Given Testimony.’ Obasanjo also told the story of Aaron and Moses, who went to deliver God’s message to King Pharaoh, who turned a deaf ear to the warnings.
The former president also emphasized that there were people who did not know God, such as Pharaoh.
Other dignitaries at the event include the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; the Chairman of the Parks Management Committee of Lagos State, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, among others.
One of the highlights of the event was when Obasanjo and Oluomo paid obeisance to the Ooni at different times in the church.
Oluomo could also be seen prostrating himself before the former president, before both men hugged each other.
