The late founder of WOSEM, Prophet Timothy Oluwole Obadare who died on the 21st of March, 2013 is set for a grand burial courtesy of Osun State government.

A whopping sum of 35 million Naira has been approved for the burial of the highly respected man of God.




This was revealed by Osun State Commissioner of Finance, Mr Wale Bolorunduro.

According to him, the N35m was approved by Governor Aregbesola due to Prophet Obadare‘s timely contribution and kindness to mankind.

The official statement reads;

“The sum of N35 million is earmarked for the construction of mausoleum, burial ceremonies and intervention works of the late spiritual leader who joined the saints on Thursday March 21, this year”
“We believe that the mausoleum of the late prophet will be a great benefit to Osun in terms of tourism development as it could attract the influx of tourists to the state”

Prophet Obadare’s burial final ceremony will take place on Saturday, the 17th of August 2013 at WOSEM Theology Centre in Ilesha, Osun State, Nigeria.

Here is a brief memorial from late prophet Obadare’s family

“We, the family of Apostle Obadare, give praise to God and are grateful for the enormous outpouring of testimonies, love and support from all and sundry far and near. Our prayer is that the Lord will continue to extend His love toward you. One thing that our father would wish is that you remain steadfast in Christ Jesus, to ensure that you can meet him again to enjoy eternal glory together, reigning with Christ our Lord. May the Lord God of our father bless you, and may his legacy never die.”

The late founder of WOSEM, Prophet Timothy Oluwole Obadare who died on the 21st of March, 2013 is set for a grand burial courtesy of Osun State government.


OSUN State government has approved N35 million for the funeral of the late Prophet, Dr. Timothy Oluwole Obadare.

  The burial rites of the world acclaimed evangelist commenced on August 9, while the remains would be buried at the World Soul Winning Evangelistic Ministry (WOSEM) Theology Centre, Ilesa, Osun State on August 17, 2013.

   The Commissioner for Finance, Economic Planning and Budget, Dr. Wale Bolorunduro, in a statement yesterday said the gesture was in line with the policy of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s administration to show respect to every religious persuasion.


  Bolorunduro described the late Obadare as one of the great spiritual icons and a sage the state is proud of, adding that the deceased promoted Osun beyond the shores of Nigeria during his missionary activities as Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) General Evangelist.

  The Commissioner noted that the mausoleum of the late prophet would be beneficial to the state in terms of its potential tourism  attraction.

 According to the statement, the money released is for construction of the mausoleum, burial ceremonies and intervention works of the late spiritual leader.

There is no justification in wasting tax payers' money on a dead body. Living beings are there on the streets struggling to survive on little or no resources, uhhhhhhh Huh?

35 million naira, the question is how much will eventually be spent on the burial? Less than 10 million naira I can assure you  and the balance to some corrupt people's personal purse. Corrupt country with corrupt leaders where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. May God help us.
