Christians, according to him, should always be prepared, adding that “as soon as you are born, you are placed on the queue.” He advised all and sundry to emulate the good legacy of the late Professor of Mathematics at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics(ÍCTP), Italy, which is a United Nations Research Centre for Mathematics and Physics.

He enjoined Christians to abstain from lie, adultery, fornication and other vices so that sins would not hinder them from entering heaven. He added: “It is an appointment, we all cannot runaway from. We are waiters for the coming of the Lord or to be called home. When you are on the queue, you will meet many people, but not all are going to the same destination as yours.”

Awopegba also paid glowing tribute to Lulu, saying: “He served God till the very end. He was a total man, extremely bold and courageous, love to speak the truth. He had been a blessing to the church and the nation at large.”
