President Muhammadu Buhari has reached out to highly revered man of God, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, as the cleric turns 74 years on 2 March, 2016.
According to presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, President Buhari says the revered Christian leader, who paid him a courtesy call at the Presidential Villa on 16 February, 2016, and whom he had interacted with many times before, epitomizes the virtues of honesty, peace, patience, contentment, humility and diligence, which are the trademarks of a good believer.
As a Christian leader, the President commends the relentless efforts, sacrifices and the grace of God upon the life of the General Overseer, who has over the years propagated the gospel around the world, organized large gathering of Christian worshipers and consistently counselled leaders and their citizens on living right before God.
Besides preaching the gospel, President Buhari salutes the social and humanitarian interventions of the RCCG leader in providing health and educational services to complement the efforts of governments.
The President prays that the Almighty God will grant Pastor Adeboye long life and more strength to carry on the good work, Mr. Adesina said.
