Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has urged Christians to be united irrespective of their denominations.

Mr Adeboye gave the advice at the Chapel of Mercy, Dadin-Kowa, Jos, on Sunday.

He said he was in Jos to commiserate with the family of the late Isaac Oyebamiji, the founder and senior pastor of Chapel of Mercy, and church members.

Mr Adeboye, who described the deceased as one of his spiritual sons, apologised for his inability to visit immediately when Mr Oyebamiji died.

”It took me this long to come for this visit because we had a close relationship with your late pastor for over 40 years.

”The servant of God has finished his assignment on earth and has gone to be with his maker; ours is to live right so that we will meet him on the resurrection day.

”But I want to use this opportunity to call on Christians in Nigeria to be united in order to defeat the enemies of the nation,” he said.

Mr Adeboye advised family members of the deceased to emulate the good ways of their father and sustain the legacies he left behind.

Responding, Pastor Olutoyin Oyebamiji, the deceased’s wife, thanked the cleric for the visit and described it as encouraging.

Mr Adeboye was accompanied for the visit by his wife, Foluke.

Mr Oyebamiji, 64, died in February after a brief illness in the United States.

He held a doctoral degree in ministry, with emphasis on ”Leadership and Preaching” from the Asbury Theological Seminary, Kentucky, U.S.
