AS ENCOMIUM continues
to pour in over the death of a
renowned revivalist, Professor
Ademu Idama, the general
overseer of World Revival
Ministry, Lagos, said the economic
state of any nation is centred on its
spiritual status.
The cleric, who emphasized
sound spiritual foundation
for Nigeria to prosper, urged
Christians to display unparalleled
love for the gospel’s propagation,
adding that it is the only panacea
for national rebirth which Idama
lived and died for.
He said the story of some
communities in the Middle
Belt and church history of this
generation cannot be written
without mentioning the inputs of
the deceased who used the gospel
to induce development in these
“He possessed a unique
Christian quality and spiritual
discipline which distinguished his
personality in our generation, a
vacuum left that must take divine
discretion and interaction to be
fulfilled”, he said.
The evangelist described the
late apostle as “an astute academic
who maintained unusual balance
in the field of academics and
spiritual discipline”, affirming
that he was in all ramifications
excellent in academics and in the
gospel ministry where he used his
apostolic influence to reposition
and redefin chaplaincy in Nigeria
He was also described by many
Christians who attended his
burial ceremony at his country
home, Anedu Enjema in Ankpa
Local Government Council of
Kogi State as a great crusader
whose evangelistic outreach
affected numerous souls in
communities, villages, towns
and cities, especially in Kwara,
Plateau, Adamawa, Taraba States
and host of others.
Until his death, Idama was
a Professor in the Department
of Statistics, Operation and
Research, Modibo Adama
University of Technology, Yola
(formerly Federal University of
Technology, Yola) where he held
notable administrative positions
including university orator, dean,
