In a post on Instagram, the church wrote: “Today, Pastor Ghandi passed on the baton of leadership to Pastor Olumide! Congrats on this new journey Pastor Olumide! We know that eye has not seen, nor ear 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.”
It said in another post, “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.”
