In an Instagram message on Thursday, Oyedepo said the RCCG leader has been an example to the body of Christ. He prayed for his longevity in the work of God.
“Happy birthday to a father, a mentor, a leader, a teacher, a man of generational impact and so much more,” the 68-year-old wrote.
“Daddy @pastoreaadeboyeofficial, we celebrate God’s grace upon your life and we are grateful for the blessing and example you are to the body of Christ.
“We wish you many many more years as you blossom in the Lord’s vineyard. Live long and prosper sir! Congratulations.”
Oyedepo’s wife posted same message on Instagram. However, she uploaded a photo of Adeboye and his wife, Foluke. Oyedepo posted a photo of Adeboye alone.
Leke Adeboye, the celebrant’s last child, also had words for the octogenarian on Instagram.
He wrote, “Happy birthday, Dad! You keep showing us what God can do with a submitted life. I join many of your spiritual sons and daughters around the world, to wish you a happy 81st birthday.
“May your days continue to be sweet in the Lord and May God keep you to the end in Jesus Name.”
