In 1971, he returned to Nigeria and started his career as a teacher in the Baptist Primary School, Igboho. He furthered his education after working for two years at the Yaba College of Technology. After completing his education, he decided to go into ministry (he encountered salvation in his school days).

During his National Youth Service Corps days he functioned as one of the pastorate of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry (DLCM) where he organized Bible study and prayer meetings through which he wrought signs and wonders. Preaching to multitudes and transforming lives.

He was able to cover most of the eastern states such as Benue State, Abia, Akwa Ibom State, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi State and Anambra State.

Pastor Akinola left DCLM in January 1987 and started his own ministry, the Redemption Ministries which has tremendously increased and has cut across several states in Nigeria and outside the country to places like Brazil, Canada and United Kingdom.

May his soul rest in peace.
