President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday congratulated Pastor Folu Adeboye, wife of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, General Overseer of the RCCG, on her 70th birthday.
Buhari, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Femi Adesina, rejoiced with Pastor Adeboye’s family and friends for the grace of service God has bestowed on them.
He noted that the service ‘was evident in preaching, living the truth of the gospel, counselling the young and old, providing warmth and succour for the weak and the underprivileged.
The President Buhari affirmed that Nigeria’s greatness today among the comity of nations derives largely from the prayers and teachings of mothers like Pastor Adeboye who regularly seek the face of God on behalf of the country and its citizens, and persistently show that real success comes from adding value and bringing joy to others.
The Statement reads in part, ”As Pastor Adeboye, who is better known as “Mummy GO’’ attains the landmark age, the President believes her achievements surpass teaching and preaching on the pulpit to include living out the practical love of God, and encouraging many on the virtues of humility, knowledge and hard work.
”As “Mummy GO’’ counts her blessings, the President prays that the Almighty God will yet add to her years, and grant her good health and strength to keep living a life of service to God and humanity.”
