Oba Olanipekun said, ”All activities on the burial held in Lagos State will also be replicated in Arigidi Akoko”.
In the same vein, the youth leader of the community, Mr Sola Adojutelegan said the Akokos had benefited immensely from the benevolent and humanitarian activities of Joshua, which made him an unforgettable human being.
Addressing the youths, a relation of the late pastor, Chief Adebisi Kura said the late pastor had many unfulfilled projects for Akokoland. He appealed to the government to immortalise his name.
