The Redeemed Christian Church of God, has mourned the late Prof. Folagbade Aboaba, who was an Assistant General Overseer in the Church.

Aboaba died on Saturday after a brief illness, aged 90.

He was said to be one of the closest allies of the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

Announcing his transition in a statement on Monday, the leadership of the RCCG said the late Aboaba served God passionately in various capacities, saying he was a distinguished elder and member of the church’s Board of Trustees.

“He was born in Lagos on March 2, 1933, and went to be with the Lord in the early hours of Saturday, January 21, 2023, after a life of exemplary service in the Lord’s vineyard.

“Prof. Aboaba served God passionately in various capacities and made a significant contribution to the work of God in the RCCG. He spearheaded the activities that led to the birth of The Redeemer’s University and served as the pioneer Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of the institution,” the statement signed by Pastor Oladele Balogun, the Special Assistant to the GO, Pastor Adeboye, read.

According to the church, Aboaba was instrumental to many laudable projects and programmes in the Mission. He was a member of the Annual Holy Ghost Congress Planning Committee as well as the Chairman of the Technical Advisory Board and Lands Committee of the Mission, adding, “to the glory of God, he lived a great life in the service of his Maker.”

“As a Church, we are grateful to God for the opportunity so graciously granted him to serve God and to be a blessing to humanity. Pastor Fora Aboaba was a Professor of Agricultural Engineering and a Professor Emeritus at the University of Ibadan.

“We commiserate with the family he left behind and, we pray that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the loss,” the church added.
