The General Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has narrated how he almost collapsed when he had a phone call from Mrs Foluke Adeboye, wife of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

According to him, he was in London when he had a call from Mrs Adeboye who wanted to find out about his health after watching a glimpse of him during his sermon on television.

Pastor Bakare made this known during his address to his followers at the ‘Gathering of Sons and Daughters’ in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on Sunday.

The three-day event, organised by the CGCC Diaspora Family Fellowship, was themed, ‘Global Mission and Globalisation: Avenues for expressing the dominion mandate.’

“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),” he said.

Speaking during his narration, Bakare noted that the message was signed with the initials, ‘MGO,’ a short form for Mummy GO as she is commonly known as by the RCCG members.

“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,” Bakare said.
