President Muhammadu Buhari has joined members of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Christendom at large, and all well-wishers in celebrating an exemplary woman and mother, Pastor Folu Adeboye, better known as “Mummy Go” as she turned turning 70.
President Buhari said that he rejoiced with Pastor Adeboye’s family and friends for the grace of service that God has bestowed on them, which is evident in preaching and living the truth of the gospel, counseling the young and old, and providing warmth and succour for the weak and underprivileged.
The President said that Pastor Adeboye’s achievements surpassed 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 hardwork.
He noted 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.
Buhari prayed that God will grant “Mummy Go” more years and good health and strength to keep living a life of service to God and humanity.
Conversely, President Buhari expressed deep condolences to the family of Alhaji Sale Hassan, who was until his death, an elder of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State.
He described the deceased as a veteran politician and community leader, adding that he was “a tireless campaigner for peace in Plateau State and the entire country, who remained energetic until his final days. His legacy will remain with the nation for a long time.”
According to President Buhari, the greatest tribute the people in this country can pay to the late statesman is for them to strive for sustainable peace in all our communities.
