In a sermon entitled, “Only one life,” Bishop Adeduyigbe described material wealth, status and positions on earth as transient hence for Christians to always prepare for the judgement day
Taking his text from First John, Chapter two, verse fifteen, Bishop Adeduyigbe encouraged Nigerian leaders to live purposefully and transperantly noting that late Olumilua as a governor, spanned both sides of divides and served humanity well.
In a remark, governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu described the late governor as a development oriented leader who served Ondo State meritoriously despite his short tenure accessioned by the military coup of late general Sanni Abacha’s led administration
The eldest son of the late governor, Mr Olumide Olumilua who appreciated Ondo State government for the commendation service described his late father as a disciplined, transparent and God-fearing Christian while alive
Aged eighty, Late Evangelist Bamidele Ishola Olumilua who democratically governed old Ondo State between 1992 and 1993 and former Chancellor, Ekiti State University is survived by three wives, children and great grand children.
