We were to meet again many years later, this time as members of His Excellency’s prerogative of mercy committee where we move from prisons in Okene to Benin, Kaduna and Jos interfacing with inmates to recommend pardon, reduced sentences or otherwise.
I loved to see him talk about God to inmates without judging them. Even with murder cases he talked smoothly and convincingly. We also had plans on a joint venture of providing marketable rehabilitative skills for inmates working with the correctional facilities. If I make enough money in the future I will still do it in your name, friend.
We became friends, exchanged calls and banters. He was a great listener and fantastic communicator.
A great man just transited to glory.
Good night Pastor Ayo Adun.”

He is a good client of our company and give us words of encouragement at all times.
The best Pastor who dedicated his life serving the church, he committed himself to everything that was happening in the church and made sure that the commission of the Lord was actualized and established.
