The General Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Tunde Bakare has narrated how he almost collapsed after a surprising phone call from the wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Foluke Adeboye.
Naija News reports that the former presidential aspirant shared the story on Sunday while addressing his church members at the Atlanta 2022: Gathering of Sons and Daughters in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
The three-day event, organised by the CGCC Diaspora Family Fellowship, was themed, ‘Global Mission and Globalisation: Avenues for expressing the dominion mandate.’
Narrating the incident, Bakare said he was in London when he received the call from Adeboye’s wife who wanted to inquire about his health after watching his sermon on television.
According to him, he almost collapsed after hearing it was the wife of the popular clergyman that was calling him.
He said: “I remember that I was on a London highway one day when Mrs Adeboye called. She had sent a text and I think she also made phone calls but I didn’t know who (it was).
“So, I placed a phone call and said ‘good afternoon, I got a text from this number.
“She said, ‘Haa, don’t you know me again?’ I said, ‘Who is speaking?’ and she mentioned her name. My mouth is too small to call her by name.
“I almost collapsed. I said, ‘ma, I didn’t know it was you.’ She said, ‘Well, we were watching television and I saw you using a walking stick; I want to know that you are well.’ I said it was illustrated sermon.
“So, you can see that they care about me and I do care about them.”
