The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christain Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has revealed that his mother breastfed him until the age of four.
Adeboye, who is the last born of his parents, made this disclosure at the ongoing Redeemed Holy Ghost Convention, themed, ‘Perfect Jubilee’.
The cleric while ministering to his congregants at the Church’s convention ground, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on the topic, ‘Born Free’, appraised women who breastmilk their children.
In his sermon, the octogenarian said the mother’s breast milk is the best food any baby can receive at infancy.
He said, “The mother’s milk is food provided by God in the most beautiful container, free of any form of contamination… The ingredient is divine, the packaging super, and the effect on your body excellent.
“At least those of us that were fed by milk, we should thank God for mummies, whether you believe it or not. I happen to be the last born of my mum. I was still sucking breast at the age of four.
“And people tried to drag me away from it, my mother said leave him alone, nobody else is coming to take it from him.”
