Dailyfamily.ng had an exclusive interview with the traditional ruler of Esa Oke land who recently became a Pastor. His Royal Majesty, Oba Pastor Adeyemi  Adediran, the Owa-Omiran of Esa-Oke Land spoke with dailyfamily.ng about his Christian life.

 

Can we meet you, Sir?

I am Oba Pastor Adeyemi  Adediran, Owa-Omiran of Esa-Oke land.

 

Tell us about your salvation experience

It has been a long time, I became Oba in 2004, I’ve been under the pastoral tutelage since 1994.

 

So, since 2004 you became Oba

Yes. I have been under Pastoral tutelage since 1994 and God have used me to change the impression of the town as a traditional herbalist town to a Christian town.

 

Sir, what have been the challenges that you have faced?

I have never faced any challenges but one thing is that it has increased my assignment; I have been going here and there to preach to the people.

 

How does it feel as  an Oba, to preach to the people?

Well, it makes me happy, it gives me strength. I was ordained a Pastor when I was 13 years on the throne. That was 4th July this year 2017, since that time I have been to different places to worship, to preach, to talk to them about God and so many people have been changing their lives seeing an Oba who is supposed to be an Idol worshipper telling them the truth about the kingdom of God, telling them there is nothing in this world that will go with you. Whatever you have in this world, you leave behind.

 

What has been the outcome now?

People have been giving their lives to Christ, some Obas also are willing to give their lives to Christ even to become pastors but it will be stage by stage.

So, in your Kingdom now, there are no more traditional or idol worshipping

Have an understanding, it is not possible for you to give birth to a child today and you see the child running but it is fading away little by little and I believe God that sooner or later everything will be in meaning.

How many are your children Sir?

I thank God as at now I am a Father of four children but all the children of Esa-Oke are my children both sons and daughters.

Thank you, Sir.
