A cleric, Reverend John Alo of the St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Yemetu, Ibadan has admonished Nigerians to always showcase God’s love in every position they find themselves.

He gave the admonition during a thanksgiving service that ended the burial ceremony of Late Madam Abigail Makinde, the mother of Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state held at the St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Yemetu, Ibadan.

Reverend Alo charged those in position of authorities to be a source of joy to the people under them instead of being source of bitterness.

He said the sudden demise of the Madam Abigail Makinde should be a wake-up call for everyone to get prepared for death, since nobody knows when it would be his turn.

The cleric further urged Christians to always hold on to the words of God to guide and direct their daily activities on earth.

In a remark during the thanksgiving service, Governor Seyi Makinde noted that death is inevitable for all creatures.

Governor Makinde urged the congregation to always remember in all their endeavours that death would come one day.

The governor used the occasion to thank all the clerics and members of the church for their support and contributions toward the success of his mother’s burial.

The wife of former Governor Rasheed Ladoja, Mrs Mutiat Ladoja, former deputy governor of Ekiti state, Olusola Eleka, Oyo State Deputy Governor, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan and his wife and the Secretary to the State Government, Olubamiwo Adeosun attended the thanksgiving service.
