In a momentous event, Prince Afolabi Olaoye Ghandi, the Soun-elect of Ogbomoso land, is preparing to make his return to Nigeria from the United States of America. This comes following the official approval of his appointment by Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, naming him as the new Soun of Ogbomoso. The esteemed Soun’s throne had been vacant since the passing of the former monarch in December 2021, who had reigned admirably for 48 years.
To commemorate this pivotal transition, a heartfelt thanksgiving and transition service took place in honor of Pastor Olaoye at the prestigious RCCG Jesus House Parish in Washington DC. The Soun-designate was joined by his spouse, Pastor Omo Ghandi-Olaoye, in this joyous occasion.
Remarkably, RCCG Jesus House Parish, under the leadership of Prince Olaoye, stands as one of the largest RCCG churches in the United States. His pastoral journey with the church began from its inception. With his departure, Pastor Olumide Ogunjuyigbe has been anointed as the next spiritual leader of this thriving congregation.
Taking to their verified Instagram page, the church expressed heartfelt gratitude to Pastor Ghandi for his exceptional leadership throughout the years. They extended their warmest wishes and unwavering belief in the remarkable path that lies ahead for Pastor Olumide.
The impending return of Prince Afolabi Olaoye Ghandi to Nigeria signifies a momentous turning point in the history of Ogbomoso. Both the community and devoted RCCG members eagerly anticipate the positive impact his leadership will bring to their lives and the broader region. This news heralds a new chapter filled with promise and potential, marking the beginning of a hopeful era for Ogbomoso.
