He recently celebrated his 60th birthday, an occasion, he decided to use in showcasing his academic prowess. Quoting his words, the erudite scholar said, “To be frank with you, I thank God I have not done anything. I have not seen God raise the dead through me. But I have seen our Daddy in the Lord, Pastor Adeboye, raise the dead. It is not fiction. What stirs my reading is the fact that I don’t know, this is what stirred my interest in academics which is the understanding that I did not know nothing”.

Continuing he said “the youths of my parish and my family have held meetings over me saying that I am over-challenging them and I said ‘no, I am only challenging myself because I don’t know anything’. I have just finished my 6th PhD but I am doing two studies now. It is this insatiable and restlessness that I don’t know anything that is pushing me.”

He is not only hard-working, his insatiable quest for knowledge in all spheres spurred his interest to achieve this before even clocking 60 years of age.

“I have a Bachelors’ Degree in Christian Education, Theology, Musicology, and Master’s in Communication, Christian Education, Cultural Anthropology Study and Law. I have Doctoral Degrees in Theology, Christian Education, Business Administration, Law, and Cultural Anthropology with 40 different fellowships. I have also authored 150 books”.

“The place of knowledge for ministers of God cannot be over-emphasised. Everyone that knows will lead others. Readers, according to popular aphorism, are leaders. If you are not informed, you will be deformed” he concluded.
