Ebenezer Obey launches ministry against drug and alcohol abuse in memory of deceased son
In honour of his late son, Olayinka Olalekan, veteran juju performer Ebenezer Obey has started a ministry to fight drug and alcohol abuse.
The ministry, which he called Freedom from Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Ministry (FADAM), aims to educate young people about the dangers associated with excessive aversion to drugs and alcohol.
Obey made a suggestion that Olayinka may have died from drug addiction when discussing the inspiration for the ministry.
He continued by saying that he made an effort to support Olayinka in overcoming his weaknesses in his role as a father.
Obey claimed that six months earlier, medics called him to tell him that Olayinka only had a few months to live.
He claimed that FADAM will provide a means of helping the families and caregivers of alcoholic and drug-dependent youngsters to overcome the difficulties facing them.
In his words:
“The doctors called me six months ago to inform me that Yinka has less than six months to live, this was very painful and bad news that a father must not hear about his son, since then. l went back to the Holy Spirit to teach me what to do and the result of my communication with the Holy Spirit is the launching of this ministry. I have received several condolence messages from all and sundry, l appreciate and thank you all for your love and concern.
l also thank Yinka’s friends for their effort and support and l must thank Shina Obey-Fabiyi (my eldest son), for coordinating all his younger brothers and sisters, for extra and special care for Yinka till the end of his life. I also thank the pastors, elders, and the entire Decross family for everything.
Once again! I appreciate all condolences, but let us rather turn to further condolences to pray for support of this new ministry to help those who are in pain of alcoholism and drug addiction.”Ebenezer Obey
