Pastor Taiwo Odukoya has been laid to rest.
The Senior Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC) died in the United States about a month ago.
The pastor, whose church is based in the Lagos neighborhood of Ilupeju, was buried on Saturday in a private ceremony attended by family members and close acquaintances.
Earlier in the day, a funeral ceremony was held at the church’s headquarters.
Bishop David Abioye’s sermon during the ceremony lauded Pastor Taiwo’s legacies while commiserating with Fountaineers on the cleric’s death.
He informed the audience that life is about making an impact, and he encouraged them to make the most of their time on Earth.
According to him, everyone must die, but what matters in the end are the legacy that people leave behind.
“We have to be sensitive to how we spend our life because all man shall die,” he said.
“The big question to all of us is, how are you living?”
Apart from Bishop Abioye, other dignitaries who graced Saturday’s funeral service included Dolapo Osinbajo, the wife of ex-Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM)’s Bishop Mike Okonkwo; the Senior Pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo; House on the Rock’s Pastor Paul Adefarasin, a delegation from the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), among others.
Born in Kaduna, North-West Nigeria, Pastor Taiwo is survived by five children including Nollywood star Jimmy Odukoya.
