Bamidele Opesanmi Laid to Rest
The Very Reverend Akin Akinpade of the Reverend B.G. Esan Chapel, Methodist Church Nigeria, Iilesa, Osun State, wants Christians to live an exemplary life and prepare for eternity.
The Cleric made the call at the burial service of Mr Bamidele Gabriel Opesanmi, a senior technical officer with Radio Nigeria Gold FM, Ilesa.
The Very Reverend Akinpade, who was speaking on” Accept what you cannot change”, explained that the deeds of all on earth were major determinants of a smooth journey to eternal reign with the Lord.
Quoting Job14, Verses 1 to 5, the Cleric reminded the people that death was inevitable as human beings had a limited time and days, hence the need for them to emulate the good works of Mr Opesanmi and support his immediate family.
The Very Reverend Akinpade, who noted the commitment of the deceased to the service of God and humanity, also described him as a strong leader in the church.
Speaking in an interview after the burial service, the General Manager of Gold FM, Ilesa, Mr Adedamola Tinubu described Mr Opesanmi as a dedicated and resilient worker.
Mr Bamidele Gabriel Opesanmi, who on Tuesday passed on at 48 during a brief illness at the Ilesa Annex of the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, is survived by aged parents, siblings, wife, Kemi Opesanmi and three children.
