THE Soun-elect of Ogbomoso land Prince Afolabi Olaoye Ghandi is set to return to Nigeria from his United States of America base, The Nation has learnt.
The Nation reports Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde approved the appointment of a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Olaoye, as the new Soun of Ogbomoso.
The stool of the Soun became vacant after the demise of the former monarch in December 2021 at 95 years after he reigned for 48 years.
In celebrating the monarch’s new phase, a thanksgiving and transition service was held in honour of Pastor Olaoye at the RCCG Jesus House Parish, Washington DC.
He was joined by his wife, Pastor Omo Ghandi-Olaoye.
RCCG Jesus House Parish which Prince Olaoye presides over, is one of the biggest RCCG Churches in America. He has been the Pastor of the church since inception.
Pastor Olumide Ogunjuyigbe has been anointed as the next head of the church.
The church in a post on its verified Instagram page – @jesushousedc said: “Today, Pastor Ghandi passed on the baton of leadership to Pastor Olumide! Congrats on this new journey Pastor Olumide! We know that eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, nor have entered into the heart of man what God will do through you! As God was with Pastor Ghandi, so shall He be with you.
“Thank you so much Pastor G for your excellent leadership over the years! As you transition into this next phase of your illustrious life, we celebrate you, we congratulate you! We pray that your life will go from glory to glory, from strength to strength. We promise to continue in the great legacy you have left behind. Amen.”
