Osun State government, under the leadership of Governor Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has okayed the sum of N35 million as part of the state’s contribution to the burial of the late Apostle of the Most High, Prophet Timothy Oluwole Obadare.
This was made known in a statement issued by the State Commissioner for Finance, Economic Planning and Budget, Dr. Wale Bolorunduro.
According to him, the money was approved to appreciate the contributions of the late respected evangelist to the development of mankind and the state.
The statement reads in part, “The sum of N35 million is earmarked for the construction of the mausoleum, burial ceremonies and intervention works of the late Spiritual leader who joined the saints on Thursday, March 21, this year.”
The statement described the late cleric as one of the greatest spiritual icons the stated had produced.
The burial ceremony will be held between August 9 and 17 at the World Soul Winning Evangelistic Ministry Theology Centre in Ilesha.
“He had promoted the name of Osun beyond the shores of Nigeria during his missionary duties as C.A.C General Evangelist.
“We believe that the mausoleum of the late Prophet will be a great benefit to Osun in terms of tourism development as it could attract the influx of tourists to the state,” he added.
