    Even as our hearts bled for the loss a great man but our rejoicing is in knowing that your eternity is with Jesus Christ. We will miss you but God who loves you more knows best. RIP. Till we meet again.

    • Prince Mike M. Obanure.

      The sudden departure of Pastor Oluwole Obanure from this sinful world came to us as the ruddest shock of our life.
      It was like a dream that we thought prayers and precautionary measures could still prevent from coming to past, but alas! the reality eventually dawn on us with sadness, sorrow and despair.
      The Otemala omo Akinjobi and the Fayomi Royal families of Iyara in Kogi state were thoroughly devastated with Pastor Olu Obanure’s unexpected demise. It was painful as it was heartbreaking to suddenly lose a great pillar, a pride, our man of God of no mean standing in the comity of candidates for the inheritance of the Kingdom of Heaven, and our inspirational teacher of the Right Words and the hope of bringing to Iyara greater teachers of the living God.
      We, however, thank God that Olu died in the Lord, and our happiness knows no bound that he is living with the angels of heaven around the throne of grace and everlasting joy singing hallelujah to the King of glory.
      His cheerfulness, gentility, kindness to all people, friendliness and on top of it all his commitment to the work of God are so natural and intimidating that all people of all races admired him.
      The Obanure dynasty, the Iyara community, the immediate and extended families,colleagues, the church on earth and humanity in general would miss you, but the angels in heaven are already celebrating your arrival.
      Continue to rest in perfect peace where there is no trouble, no sorrow or suffering until we meet to part no more.

    Father of the fatherless, Judge and Defender of the widow, thank You that you will stand solidly by this family, and they will never lack any good thing, in Jesus Name.

  3. Peace Adebayo

    We will greatly miss Pastor Olu Obanure, one of the generals of God. But we are consoled that that you die serving God till the last breath.
    Your life has impacted several lives including me, though I did not know you intimately, I have been touched by your love for God and simplicity.
    Live on till we meet at the feet of Jesus when we shall receive the crown of Life, where we live never to die. Amen

  4. Abi

    Sleep on Man of God, till the resurrection morning. God will take care of all that you left behind…. May we all make heaven IJN

  5. Pastor Bola Lasisi

    Pastor Olu Obanure finished well and he finished. He finished his earthly assignment on a high note, with impeccable testimonies. He has joined the heavenly, on a new assignment and has dropped mortality for immortality. The Holy Spirit, the Comforter will continue to comfort the RCCG and his family and grant all of us peace, strength and the fortitude to carry on the good work where Pastor Obanure handed over the baton. I could still hear him, saying “Pastor” on the phone when myself and my wife visited Ghana early April 2017, just three weeks before his glorious exit. Pastor Olu Obanure , adieu. Shalom.

  6. Olusola Jay

    We love you but God love you more, we will miss YOU in RCCG,but we will meet at feet of Christ where we will not part again. RIP.

  7. Pastor Marcus Chilaka

    Pastor Norah and I hereby send our condolences to Pastor Obanure’s family and the entire mission. We had the unique honour and privilege to serve under him from the early years of the RCCG in Abuja till it grow and Pastor Obanure became the State Pastor (as was the designation then). On this occasion we pray the Lord to ‘teach us to number our days…’ Rest In Peace till we also take our bow to Glory Land.

  8. SOKUNBI OLUWATOYIN TAIWO

    Your family wife and children God will protect them all IJMN

  9. We bless the name of the Lord for the life of Late Pastor Obanure. He was such a diligent, committed, hardworking man of God. Someone who has passion for souls and the work of God. God knows best and the reason He called him home but we pray that the Lord will comfort the family he left behind and continue to strenghten them inJesus name. ‘Rest in Peace till we see in glory in Jesus name.

  10. Adebowale Excellency Tomisin

    Rest in Peace Pastor Obanure. May God Almighty comfort the family and church members you left behind. Till we all see God in Glory RIP.

  11. Gospel&Julie Ogbonna

    Great man of God, committed and highly inspiring. You were a great inspiration to many of us. Alas! God knows why it must be now. Till we meet at His glorious Feet adieu! Gospel & Julie (Ogale Eleme)

  12. Pastor Chris Olukolade

    Well, it is well! This marks the exit from here & triumphant entry into glory of a peculiar vessel of God. Wish I knew that our intimate chat on Sunday in Abuja was going to be the last with this ever pleasant friend. Calling out to me in the large crowd in his usual calm voice & in the way he fondly refers to me, he said ‘Mon General ‘ how far! We stepped aside from the large crowd to enable me brief him on an assignment he gave me. We laughed & parted hoping to meet in the camp later in the week. Then this news. Well, it is well! Trusting the Holy Spirit to minister due comfort to my sister, his wife; to our father in the Lord, the entire church, the family and the array of friends across the globe. May we receive all encouragement from Him in a time like this. Meanwhile, rest on our beloved Pastor Olu Obanure, till we meet to part no more at the bosom of our great Lord & Saviour. Good night, Pastor!

  13. Olusegun TOLUHI

    Pastor Olu Obanure was a Saint whose mind has always been upon his eternal home. It isn’t such a shock to me, that he left this early. Still, he has given us another reason to strive for this home, so that we would, one day, have yet another fellowship. Rest on, beloved of the LORD.

  14. Ifeze Ifeanyichukwu E. Obi

    Our Father’s great light shone towards me through this wonderful heart of a man. I attest to a heart that felt and expressed the most compassionate heart of our Father to me at a time I desperately desired to feel HIS comfort. So I personally attest that pastor Obanure was once an instrument that spread the glory of the Most High! Glory be to God! I am ultra confident our Father who first said it, will never forsake his family!

  15. Joseph Oluwatosin

    The Lord brought you to this world for a purpose. Though to us, it was like your time with us was short, you really gave us a lot to thank God for. My wife and I cannot easily forget the rare love you showed us, among other things, last August during the convention. We had some accommodation issues and you stumbled into us and stood with us for hours into late night and ensured that we were sorted. You really touched lives positively and surely we shall emulate your candour. We are missing you but take solace in the fact that you served your God to the best of your ability. Sun re o our dear Pastor.
    Pastor/Pastor Mrs. Joseph Oluwatosin.

  16. Pastor Adeyemi Awofeso

    What a great lost! A father, teacher, mentor and defender of rights of others is gone. Pastor Olu Obanure (” Oba o ninu ire” as we fondly called you) will be greatly missed by all of us who knows you and all you stood for while on earth. How i wish we could travel back in time to really pay attention to all your numerous teachings, seminars and training but alas! it no longer possible. I hope others could emulate your good virtue and improves not only on their walks with God but on their human relations especially with their subordinates. God Almighty Himself will comfort the church and His entire family. Adieu !!! Till we meet at the Lord’s feet to part no more.

  17. Daniel Ayodele

    In the sweet by and by, we shall meet on the beautiful shore if we continue steadfast in the way of the LORD JESUS. May the Lord comfort all the brethren and his family in the mighty name of Jesus.

  18. Oh! My Pastor Olu, you will be sorely missed. I met you and Sister Yemi just as I got to become a member of the Church. I love our nursery days as workers, me being junior to you both of course. It was always so nice to be your hostess whenever you visit lagos with your family. How you made me understand the tenets of our christianity has kept me established in the Faith. As a member of the BOT Africa missions you were always a pillar of encouragement, teaching me patience as secretary to the board at the time. As my province pastor at TOG you were a father in deed. I will certainly miss you. Sister Yemi and the Children please take heart. As usual pastor has gone ahead to make arrangement for our reception in heaven when the time comes. He has fought the good fight. I know he has received his crown, becoming a saint triumphant. Rest in the Lord’s Bosom, my Pastor and mentor.

  19. Rev. Vincent WURANTI & Family

    Our love and our heart go to the family and the entire RCCG membership world wide. Daddy, your life had touched many and your ministry blessed thousands. Your life was an investment for many generations to come. We have heard and seen the fruit of your great sacrifices as vessel in the hand of the Almighty God. The legacy of faithfulness and integrity in Ministry left behind will eternally be cherished. Rest in the bossom of the Lord till we meet to part no more. The memory of the just is blessed. Adieu Daddy.

    I will always remember you!

    Your daughter,

  26. Polycarp Gbaja

    It was online all over the world
    Soon as it happened
    I saw it too, very far from home
    No profound explanations
    The privilege and cycle of life..
    You delivered simply
    Hope, faith and love
    Integrity, excellence, power
    To all you met
    I am blessed and privileged
    Since our paths crossed
    That beautiful Sunday morning
    At Abuja Sheraton 24 years ago
    A love note you were
    From The Almighty Father
    To functional people & places
    To a sick, dysfunctional world
    Needing so badly His healing
    Restoration & glory
    Many times we prayed & wept
    In quiet spaces for our people & land
    Then to the brutal fields
    Where light and salt needed
    Application… your words
    Gave your best and all
    Pastor Olu Obanure
    Thank you, sir..
    Thank you, Lord
    For the gift of a precious gem
    Way beyond words
    Good night, here
    Good morning, there…

  27. Hallelujah Hosannah

  30. A/P Bolutayo Bukola Mrs

    For a life well spent with the Lord, Pastor Obanure was a father indeed,I was just a growing youth under him in Central parish, Abuja.
    He was humble, dedicated, enduring and God fearing.
    Adieu Daddy Obanure, you have fought a good fight, you’re finished your course, your crown with stars awaits you in Heaven.
    May the Lord support and strengthen the family that you have left behind and also fill the vacuum that your absence has created in the hearts of your loved ones especially in Abuja.
    Rest in the bossom of the Lord till we meet again.

  31. Sandra

    Irreparable loss to the world but heaven’s massive gain. Daddy, the people’s voice is indeed the voice of God! Nobody has testified negatively. The heavens are really in a joyous mood as they welcome you home. May we all meet you in heaven someday too. Rest on sir!

  32. Pastor Victor Adeyanju

    We bless God for bringing us about five years ago to work directly under your leadership at West coast headquarters – Breakthrough Sanctuary, Accra, Ghana.
    By this working relationship, we discovered that you were so different from many other leaders in terms of your lifestyle, commitment to Kingdom business and interaction with those within and outside the church. Your life gave us a ready meaning to tolerance, peace, patience and hope. We found in you a kind-hearted man of God; given to helping others even to your detriment. Your commitment to God’s work and particularly to West coast vision 2020 is unsurpassed. Many that have responded to this vision so far, came because of their commitment to God’s Kingdom and your positive impact in their lives and ministries.
    The vacuum your departure has created will be difficult to fill but we know that with God all things are possible. The Breakthrough sanctuary family and Ghana generally will miss you. My wife Adebisi, the children and I are missing you. Mummy and children are missing you. We are however consoled that you have fought a good fight, you have kept the faith. Continue to rest in the blossom of your lord till we meet to part no more. Good night Daddy Oluwole Obanure.

  33. Pastor C.T.Oni

    In a soft, kindly baritone he would say ” my brother Chris ” to answer my greeting or start a conversation. He was humble and totally committed in all that he set out to do. He was a peacemaker, an encourager per excellence.

    ADIEU
    It was a conflict of shock, consternation, anguish, helplessness and submission to the will of the Almighty God when we heard of the demise of our pastor, chairman, father, brother and empathizer.
    We are once again reminded thus: Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end.
    A few came around to thrill, some came around to soothe, while even fewer came around to show the way life ought to be, Pastor Olu Obanure was these and more. It certainly feels awkward referencing Pastor Olu Obanure in the past because hardly will minutes pass by without those whose lives were touched by his pure heart and whose day, he brightened, missing him. Without any iota of doubt, Daddy you scored A1, on all fronts, if ever we are asked to rate your life and time with us. Goodbye!
    Ogenyi Emmanuel (VP NHIS, Abuja)

  41. Remi Abioye

    I wish to thank The Almighty God for the Wonderful Gift to the Entire Body of Christ in the person of late Pastor Olu Obanure. He was a Mentor, a Father, an Encourager, an Undershepherd per excellence, and most of all a True Child of God. He was very loving, very compassionate, very selfless and very gentle.
    My candid prayer is that The Almighty God will grant his gentle soul eternal rest, and comfort the family, friends and The Church of God in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.
    Adieu, Our Mentor and Pastor.

  42. Pst Mulero Timothy Muyiwa

    I thank you God of glory and Lord of love for a life well spent and lived. Passing into glory of your son Pst Olu Obanure is gainful to him but painful to us but we take solace in Rom 8:28. My dear Pst Olu Obanure keep resting in God, Lord and your savior. One lesson learnt is Life is not in duration but in donation. Thank you for donating your potentials to the Lord and humanity. I pray for strenght for Mummy Bolanle, Tomi & siblings and the Entire RCCG family to drive the pain of your demise away as quick as possible. I believe God has given you immortal and eternal gladness and life, keep resting Dear Pst Obanure
    Your Son in The Lord

  43. Pst Steve Dele Oluwaniyif

    Daddy Olu Obanure, you were indeed a man of God who never gave up on any soul. Your Godly counsels are still reverberating. You never allowed the double royalty of your birth ( one from my mother’s side) becloud your true pursuit of joint heir with the Lord Jesus. Your true love for people may be responsible for God’s grace that you never forget names of people even years after meeting them. Good night daddy!

He was such a diligent, committed, hardworking man of God. Someone who has passion for souls and the work of God. God knows best and the reason He called him home but we pray that the Lord will comfort the family he left behind most especially his wonderful wife mummy Obanure and her children. May Jehovah continue to strengthen them in Jesus name. ‘Rest in Peace till we see in glory in Jesus name.

  47. Charles J Etuk

    I first met Pastor Olu Obanure on Sunday 15th May 1994 , when l attended a Pentecostal Church for the first time upon the insistence of my wife that I must become a born again Christian. I had just turned Forty years old and I walked into this Sheraton hotel main conference hall and I saw this dark,tall and good looking man leading the praise worship. The music was so melodious that I just sat on my seat and immediately got carried away. That was how I started my journey on the path of living right. Pastor obanure will visit me in the house to strengthen me in my resolve to serve our Lord, Jesus Christ. He encouraged me to
    attend the Bible College and also the School of Disciples which I did. I pray that his soul Rest In Peace and God will comfort his family he left behind in Jesus name Amen

    TRIBUTE TO PASTOR OLU OBANURE BY Mr & Dr Mrs KINRIN,PETER mni
    We write this TRIBUTE as your long standing friends at ABU, Zaria and Ilorin in those early years as civil servants in the Ministry of Information Ilorin as young officers in Kwara State Civil Service. We fondly greeted one another cheerfully thus:” okun” Peter, “okun” Bose .Your voice always rang out happily and we were so happy together as we always responded “okun” Olu. Your wonderful parents were like our mother and father. Your were our best man at our wedding in 1979; a role you played wonderfully and happily. You left Kwara Civil Service pretty early joining a bank and eventually became a Pastor of The Redeemed Church of God. We continued our beautiful friendship and were always so happy to catch up with developmens in our families. We mutually have children known as Tomi. We shall never forget the happy moments we shared and your ringing tone and happy mien. You were a great lawn tennis player as you won laurels and trophies and excelled in a game you played beautifully.We commend your lovely wife and children to God’s care as well as the Ministry. We miss you so much but are consoled by your great passion and service to ourLord and Saviour Jesus Christ.Continue to rest in perfect peace until we meet to part no more at Jesus’s feet. Adieu our great brother and friend Bose and Peter Kinrin.

  51. Olajumoke Erin-Oluwa

    What can I say? My big brother from another mother. That was who you were to me. My Brother Olu. From the days you were my House Fellowship leader at Pa McEwen’s house at Ogunlana Drive, to Abuja, to your international ministry, you didn’t change. You and Sister Yemi showed me how to love and follow the Lord in faith and obedience. Your simplicity was exemplary. Ever smiling. No airs, no graces. Your wonderful sense of humour gave a delightful flavour to life. You were loyal and committed. I will miss you terribly but I know you are in my future, and I will see you again in the presence of Jesus. The Lord will keep Sis Yemi and your lovely children, and grant them the grace to carry on your legacy. Amen!

  52. Iyabode Olusola Taiwo

    I bless God for the life of Pastor Obanure, my great great uncle. I had the privilege of meeting him for the first time in Ghana in April, 2016. It was a beautiful reunion time to know that arm of my family. I thank God for his life and the life of those he touched. May God comfort the immediate and extended family. Good night great great uncle until we meet at the feet of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  53. John Akande

    I heard of the affability of Daddy Obanure through my then Zonal Pastor while I was still working in Owerri, I never knew that my path would one day cross his. He passionately served God, gave voraciously and touched my life in not a few ways. His call to glory has obviously left a yawning gap in our lives, we are however consoled that there comes a day when we shall meet again. I pray that the Lord will comfort mummy who I am privileged to know calls you ‘Temi’, your children and all loved ones. Rest in Peace sir.

  54. Pst Steve Oluyombo

    My Pastor is gone.
    My father, my father; Pastor DAVID OLUWOLE OBANURE.
    A Fine Gentleman.
    My first Parish Pastor in RCCG.
    Our Father, Leader, Teacher, Coach, Mentor, Friend and General in the Army of Christ.
    A man of distinction, detribalized, loving and caring man of God.
    A genuine man of God.
    You gave up everything to serve the Lord. You were a message to many of us. You gave us opportunities to express ourselves. You encouraged us to collaborate not compete with one another. You ran your race and remained focused till the end. You sowed seeds of honour into our lives. I am so proud to say that I am one of the fruits of your unblemished ministry in Abuja. You inspired me.
    You led us, taught and fed us, yet you never asked us to pay you or arrange any kind of settlement as todays’ Pastors are raping the fold.
    I remember, you visited us once in our Parish and you came on Okada just to keep an appointment. We know you as a violent Giver, you taught us to give and you didn’t manipulate us in any way to give to you. A true worshipper, a prayer warrior who taught us to pray, led us to pray, not just giving instructions to pray. You were comfortable with the rich and the poor, the learned and unlearned. You condemned no one but you hate the sins of men. You set us up for honor and not to be trapped. The church of God cannot forget you in a hurry especially RCCG ABUJA FAMILY. You raised an army of committed, faithful and loyal Soldiers.
    I am a Pastor today by the grace of God but God used you to prepare and inspire me and many others.
    You paid us a farewell visit in Abuja last Sunday 30th April and we thought as usual you were around to rejoice with one of us, not knowing God set it up for you to say goodbye. We will surely miss your sincere counsel.
    Your only wife and children (Tomi, Busola, Pelumi & Tireni) will surely miss you.
    We call you Father, we call you Daddy because you earned it, you deserved it not because you are a Pastor but because you are a Father indeed.
    Many people are weeping home and abroad but we surrender to the supreme will of God, the all knowing God. We say Thank you Lord for a gift to the world DAVID OLUWOLE OBANURE; Pastor of Pastors.
    We are yet to recover from the news of your departure. Goodnight our Pastor.

    Pastor Steve & Glory Oluyombo
    FCT Province 2, Abuja

  55. Andy Jaja

    My wife and I will forever be grateful to God Almighty for allowing our paths and that of Late Pastor Olu Obanure to meet.
    He discipled me. He joined my wife and I in our Holy Matrimony. I worked under him for 12 years and what I am today and what I know today as a pastor he planted in me. The vigils, the surprise preaching assignments without pre-information and his magnetic grasps of first names at first instance inspired me to be more friendly.
    Thank you daddy Obanure for inspiring me to be what I am today. Our comfort lies on the fact that we shall meet someday at the Feet of the Master.
    Mummy Obanure and the children. May God continue to strengthen you and the children. God loves you all.
    Adiós daddy Olu Obanure.

    I truly fare the well My beloved father Pastor Olu Obanure.✋

    You truly served the Kingdom

    Your impact is immeasurable even years after been under your tutelage.

    Your voice is so distinct, my ears still tingle.

    I am shocked and speechless.

    In my heart I still believe that I will be woken up from this dream.
    But I know that goodnight always proceeds goodmorning.

    So I say goodnight Sir till the resurrection morning.
    And your legacy lives on

    Thank God for Pastor Obanure. Over the years, have only been watching a far only on the altar. I had an opportunity of meeting with him one on one once during a program in Abuja, Nigeria. You are a leader with exceptional characters.Very humble and simple man of God to relate with. I know you are resting with Jesus. May the Lord comfort the family and the church. Rest on…… until we meet at the gate of heaven.

  59. Pst & Pst Mrs John Imoudu

    Daddy Obanure as we fondly call you.

    After coming to terms with your transition, I celebrate your life and times. You were a Pastor in deed. From the first day I introduced my wife to be then, you always will ask of her by calling her first name. This trait is the same with so many brethren. You were thorough in follow up and you provoked us to do same.

    The simplicity of the life you live is so endearing. Always having a word of encouragement for all you meet. You made serving God a pleasure because you led from the front. In all the liftings you have experienced in life and ministry, you kept in touch with your root.

    We will miss you but we take solace that you are in a better place. We are convince that Mummy Yemi Obanure and the children will enjoy in undeniable terms the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

    Daddy Obanure! Goodbye! Till we meet at Jesus’ feet.

    When I received the news of your sudden departure to glory I shed tears like a child. My encounter with you in Abuja was remarkable and the last time we met in March during the special Holy Ghost service you were asking me about the mission field and care so much about our welfare.
    I want to say we will miss you greatly. You came and you conquered! Daddy Obanure, you finished strong! You impacted your generation!
    Indeed your life was not a waste but a blessing.

    Daddy Obanure, my Father, my Father! My heart skiped when I heard about your passing on to glory. We thank God for His message and consolation that you are with him in glory. You are an epitome of humility. My wife and I are forever grateful for your unflinching love, kindness, encouragement, and understanding during our courtship days. You stood by us even when our parents said no. Thank you for being there always. You did encourage us in then Abuja drama unit to give our best and serve God with all that we have. You taught us to give when it is convenient and when it is not. You are an unrepentant giver anyday and anytime. That we are Pastors today in RCCG is God and your training, mentoring and coaching. We still boost of the training you and mummy gave to us your children in Abuja. How can we forget the 12 and later 24 hours Praise, the fasting, the vigils and your words of encouragement to us when things seem to be the other way. We love you but God loves you more. You never forget names. The only pastor that have been able to call me by my native name. We love you but God loves you more. I know the good Lord will console, keep and protect mummy and the wonderful children you left behind. Su re bami! We will definitely meet to part no more.

  64. Pastors Gabriel & Henrietta Osadebamwen Joshua, Kogi province 4.

    My Father, My Father! Daddy Obanure, My heart skiped when I heard of your passing on to glory. It was like a dream that Tuesday night when the phone call came in. I was patiently waiting for someone to call again and inform me that the news was false and that you had come back to life. Our trip to camp the next day was with hope that I would receive a more correct report than that of Tuesday night. My heart kept beating in wait, alas the news was true! My father, my coach and mentor is gone to be with the Lord. I kept asking and search God for consolation, until he spoke the evening of Thursday that you were with him in glory, then my peace came back! You are an epitome of humility, a rare gem, pastor of pastors, a leader, coach, mentor, a father to all who came across you and one sold out for Christ and his work. My wife and I are forever grateful for your unflinching love, kindness, encouragement, and understanding during our courtship days. You stood by us throughout those turbulent years, you believed in us and our vision even when friends and our parents did not. Thank you for being there always. You did encourage us in then Abuja drama unit to give our best and serve God with all that we have. You taught us to give when it is convenient and when it is not. You are an unrepentant giver anyday and anytime! That we are Pastors today in RCCG is God and your training, mentoring and coaching. We still boost of the training you and mummy gave to us your children in Abuja. How can we forget the 12 and later 24 hours Praise, the fasting, the vigils and your words of encouragement to us when things seem to be the other way, your visit during our reharsals to pray for us. We love you but God loves you more. I know the good Lord will console, keep and protect mummy and the wonderful children you left behind. Su re bami! We will definitely meet to part no more.

  67. Pastor and A/P Mrs. Adeyanju

    My great father, mentor, discipler, trainer, coach, role model champion of champions and a hero of all time is gone!
    My first contact person in RCCG in March 1993 in Abuja.
    You taught me humility, respect, gratitude, selflessness and obedience even in difficult moments.
    You shaped my life, gave me a focus, gave me an identity, build faith and confidence in me, made me minister and also gave me a platform to serve my maker.
    You spent, you spend, still spending until you were totally spent and poured out as a precious offerings and fragrance unto the most high.
    A teacher of teachers, pastor of pastors, apolitical, detribalized, objective, single eyed, achiever, goal getter, indefatigable.
    A prayer warrior, an intercessor, a great lover of Christ, a builder of men, an encourager and a man of great empathy.
    You have ran the race, you have finished your course. But the impacts you created in places and in our lives remain indelible in the sands of times and in our hearts forever.
    I believe that several thousand Men of like passions as you are shall arise in RCCG, because the Bible said until a seed dies and buried, it abides alone. But when it is planted, it produces much more fruits.
    Your demise is painful, saddening and shocking. But since God has allowed it in such a time as this that the mission and the people of God need you most, we have no choice other than to take solace in God who is in charge of our lives.
    Good night my great Daddy.

  68. Effiong Udoka

    I have been in this deep sleep for too long, waiting for someone to wake me up and tell me that it is a mere dream.

    I am lost of words.

    Nevertheless, sleep on oh Man of God with unparalleled humility and desire to serve God and humanity.

    Till that day when we shall meet again at the foot of Christ to part no more.

    Good night

  69. Aiyenigba Olalekan

    The realization that you have transited to glory is still difficult for me to comprehend but in the end the name of the Lord is glorified because in all things we give thanks for the life you lived. Till we meet to part no more, continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord. Adieu.

  70. Ayankoya olamide

    Daddy Obanure, u av been a loving father to me, an encourager, a kindhearted person to me…..I really find it hard to believe u are no more in our midst. U were always concerned about our well being, daddy I will miss u so much. My consolation is in d fact that u av gone to be with d Lord, rest on in the bosom of our Lord till we meet to part no more in Jesus
    name.

  71. Pastors Kola & Kehinde Abawonse

    Pastor Olu Obanure was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit, and very strong in faith. A seasoned and well respected man of God who’s faith worked by love. Through his ministry in the early 90s, the word of God and the Redeemed Christian Church of God grew in the City of Abuja and its environs.
    His tenacity, never giving up spirit made me a member and Pastor in the RCCG today.
    Pastor Olu Obanure was more than a Pastor to me, he was a father, mentor, Encourager, friend and much more. In several ways, his christian walk is reflective of God in the Bible, such as Father Abraham, Apostle Paul, King David, Elijah the Prophet, John the Beloved, and Moses the Liberator. His Christlike example of faith and love remains very evident in his willingness and obedience to accept God’s directives for him in several areas which time not permit to mention here.
    Pastor Olu Obanure, my first Parish Pastor, my first Area Pastor, my first State Pastor in the RCCG was an incurable giver. He gave up his career as a Banker to pursue his love for Jesus. He gave all he had when RCCG Central Parish was being built. He taught us to give through his own example. He taught us to pray and fast by organizing what was then known as contact three, contact seven and contact ten i. e. praying for three hours, seven hours and ten hours respectively non stop.
    Pastor Obanure, you were a special gift to the body of Christ. You were a blessing to me and my family. You departed this sinful world so suddenly, and I am still living in denial. Your departure is still like a dream. If I were to think of death concerning anyone, it would never have been you. Just recently, early in this year, you rescued me from an embarrassing situation I found myself in financially which I did not have the opportunity to repay before your sudden departure. My eyes are still wet with tears even as I write this tribute. I can imagine hoe devastated my gentle, loving, caring and beloved Mummy Yemi, your darling wife has been after your sudden departure. May God comfort her in a way only Him can, and give her, Tomi, Busola, Pelumi and Tireni, the fortitude to bear this great loss.

    Good night my father, mentor, Pastor and friend. Rest on till we meet at the feet of Jesus.

  72. Pastor ILESANMI Johnson Akindele

    You are a great Man of God with a True Shepherd heart, a father, mentor,teacher,husband with a humble and gentle Spirit, the spirit of humility and simplicity is uncommon among your comtemplary. I blessed the day l know you Daddy Obanure, a good tree don’t last in the Forest. For me and my family we shall eternally grateful for your leadership role model and fatherly care in our lives. May your gentle soul rest in peace. Amen. On behalf of my family and the church Pastor and Pastor Mrs ILESANMI JOHNSON RCCG Ghana province 2 Kumasi.

  73. Joyce Martins

    Hmmmm, Daddy Obanure, you came and you did what God assigned you to do, you accomplished your mission Sir.
    Rest eternally with God your father in heaven.
    May God be with mummy and the children. Adieu God’s general !

  74. Collins

    Rest on man with great God. I know you have run a race worthy of emulation as a leader. I Sure that God will guard all you left behind.

  75. Dcns. Jaji, Olabisi Bolanle

    The sudden departure of our dear daddy in the Lord, Pst. Olu Obanure was really shocking & painful. The man I nick- named, ‘ the Moses of our time’ out of recognition of his, calmness, humility, capacity to love, readiness to show understanding to the plight of others, while still being firm in enforcing the required discipline to accomplish a task is no more.
    Late Pastor Obanure provided a soft landing pad to those of us who were members of Rccg that reported at the central parish, following the mass movement of civil servants to Abuja in 1997; he exuded so much confidence in us & quickly integrated us into the system in the Church, he never cast away any advice that will make the Church grow; he engendered love & unity amongst us that created that bond that is enduring till today, despite our different locations as at now. Our consolation is that, you came, you saw & you conquered, doing the will of your master, and for this we are assured that you are currently resting in peace. On behalf of my family & self, we extend our heartfelt condolence to mummy Obanure, the children, the entire Obanure family, daddy & mummy G.O & our dear Abuja family, particularly during the period of his service there. The enduring foundation he built & legacies he left still speak volumes till today. We pray that the Almighty God will console us all, & release His love to heal the hurt of his wife & children. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

  76. Matthew Oye Arikanki

    I was introduced to pastor Olu Obanure by a class mate Akua who work with former Intercontinental bank. Pastor Obanure asked me to get a house for him in Accra. After inspecting few houses he decided on the one at Regimanuel Estate, Spintex Road. To my surprise, he called me and paid me commission, hence the beginning of a friendship with him. Pastor Obanure knows my wife and names of my children and he used to buy gifts for them. He used to buy provisions for my family. I never saw him getting angry. His message were simple spiced with humor. Pastor Obanure said something one day that I took to heart. He said “raising teenagers is like fighting with lions”. I started using that instruction to train my children before they become teenagers. It was when I relocated to New York that I realized the import of his saying when I now see that most parents here decided not to raise their children in the way of the Lord, but they allowed the teenagers to raise themselves.
    Pastor, you have fought a good fight of faith, you now laid your sword at the feet of Jesus. Rest on our amiable pastor.

  84. Gregory Nzekwu

    Dear Daddy Olu Obanure,
    You were more than a Mentor to me, you found me out even when I wanted to hide myself in the congregation; you pulled me into Ministry, encouraged me and remained open to me in all aspects of Ministry. However its so hard for me believe that April 30, 2017 was the last time we would see you and share moments together. Your role in our lives was indeed the one and only. You showed us how to be open and extremely committed to God in every facet of Ministry. You shared your privacy with us, spent nights with us in vigils so that God can prove Himself in Abuja. You led us through the rudiments of ministry with complete humility and never received any merchandised the Gospel as it is done today. You indeed proved to us that service to God requires the complete unfolding of oneself into God’s plan. We found in you anytime and anywhere true worship, true prayer and true word that could touch a hardened heart. You showed us the love that can not be found today and built us into a family of love in Central Parish and through the parishes came out of it. You were indeed a father that raised an army of faithful, committed, loyal and devoted soldiers who counted everything as nothing except service to God.
    Daddy I miss you even more because we found in you an example of who can be a Pastor and who has love for God. Your role in our life as your children will linger for a very long time. When the children heard the news of the Lord calling you home, they stopped all they were doing in their different countries and are yet to recover for you spent your life making people to have identity with God from whatever height they had attained in life. You provided me with a guide to openness in leadership and never looked back when it comes to speaking of things exactly the way they were.
    What a way to say “good bye” without saying it. I cried for days, not knowing how to live. I couldn’t sleep, couldn’t eat, and couldn’t do anything. We were so close and God do I miss him everyday. You taught us so many things including never to give up even when the challenges are so glaring and hurting. You showed us how to be spent for God and never look for any earthly reward. Your role as a mentor was outstanding.

    We love you and we miss you but the Lord loves you more. May the Lord watch over the home you have left behind.

    Daddy was an extraordinary being. I didn’t have much contact with him other than the day he asked me to take him around for some specific assignment he had to run. The way he asked for my assistant reflected the character of Jesus. In fact, he was one personality we will not forget in a hurry. I haven’t met anyone who speaks ill of Daddy.
    We shall meet in heaven to part no more.Good Night Daddy Olu Obanure

We became even more closer to you when we were transferred to Achimota Zone . You visited us on 23th of April which happened to be your last Sunday Service in West Coast . Very unusual things happen but we did not take note . It has become a reality that we have to cope with for the rest of our lives especially myself and my wife , which you used to call Sister Remi .

    On behalf of the Redeemed Christian of God Germany . I wish to express my deepest condolence for the passing unto glory of our father, brother, uncle . Pastor and partner in the Kingdom’s business. Pastor Olu Obanure ,the Assistant General Overseer and Pastor- in – charge of RCCG . ( West Coast).
    This is a really sad and great loss indeed to the entire RCCG family.
    My last encounter with Pastor Obanure was in December 2016, in the Camp. In 2013 he visited us in Hamburg where we had a glorious service together at Abundant Grace after which we travelled down to Kiel.
    I will remember him as a pleasant man with a great sense of humility which made him kept rank with people of all ages. I will also miss his unique greeting style ‘E pele Pastor’.
    Our love, thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult moment.

    I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to comfort the entire RCCG family, the family of the deceased and grant the Christian body the fortitude to bear this sad loss.

    Pastor Obanure, you have left this world, but you will not leave our hearts. As you are with our senior brother and Saviour, continue to interceed for us to meet one day to reign with you for eternity. Thanks for have been there for me. I know you will be well rewarded. Till we meet again. For your family, may the Lord continue to uphold and strenghten them especially at this time. All the brethren from Dominion House – San Pedro, Cote d’Ivoire extend their condolences to the family that the Lord will always be there for them.

  90. Pastor Olu Obanure led an exemplary lifestyle as an icon and a colossus of unquestionable character. He was a committed, dedicated and a selfless servant-leader. Of a truth, Pastor Obanure was a friend to all, going by his last words to me before his final home call to glory.

    I can personally say that Pastor Obanure would stop at nothing in bringing out the best in those around him. He was a leader per excellence, a leader with vision, purpose and direction.
    While working with him, I discovered so many virtues, distinctive qualities and Godly attributes that stood him out as a servant-leader. He had a good and friendly working relationship with his superiors and likewise his subordinates.

    Pastor Obanure was a gallant soldier of Christ and he fought till his last breath. He was a dogged achiever. He was a strong and resilient steward with an undying passion for excellent performance in doing the King’s business.

    Also worthy of emulation is his good sense of humor, humility, meekness; he was kind-hearted, caring, accommodating, magnanimous, tolerant and generous.
    I pray that his gentle soul rest in peace.

    Daddy Olu Obanure, your exit shocked my world! You left a positive mark in my life that has affected my family life. Every last Tuesday of the month will always be remembered for the worship of our King. Your wonderful and encouraging words of “we shall celebrate your success brother” on my study echo in my ears. Interestingly, you departed before I could finish the study. Our beloved savior in His infinite wisdom decided to take you into His very presence. All I can say now is farewell! Sleep well till we meet on the resurrection morning. We pray God almighty for peace, strength and comfort for the entire family of RCCG you left behind. It is well! Pst Gilbert & A/P Uduak Aimufua

  94. Asabe Precious Umar

    Daddy Obanure you encouraged me to be a worker in RCCG, how about fasting and prayering ,you assembled men of integrity, like Pastor Charles Achunwo, Rev. Moses Arinsola, PST. Emmanuel Kure and alot more in those in Central Parish and North 5 in general to give us a solid foundation as beginners in the faith and future leaders in the vain yard of God. What about the act of giving without lookng back it was you. Your love was without bias, you were always there for us no matter how tied you were. Daddy who will speak to me in Hausa when we meet at REDEMPTION CAMP asking after my friends and sister that you met only once yet you will always remember there names. Daddy you were a man of many parts, a mentor, motivator, a teacher, a caregiver, a worshiper, a chorister, a seasoned administrator, an encourager, a missionary, a prayer warrior and a pastor of pastors. What else can we say, you have completed your work but left us with a big vacuum that only Jehovah can fill and a lesson that we most be prepared. For Mummy YEMI and the children the Almighty God will give you the fortitude to bear the transition of our beloved Daddy.
    Daddy Obanure Sai munzo, Ubangiji mu ya raka ka Amen. It is well,we will surely miss you.

    Good night daddy Olu Obanure, you lived a purposeful life affecting both young and old. You showed loved to all with humility and hate to see tears in the eyes of anyone. We felt the pain but we are joyful that it pleased God to call you in active service. Good night until we meet at the feet of our lord.
