President Muhammadu Buhari has joined members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and well-wishers in celebrating the wife of the church’s General Overseer, Pastor Foluke Adeboye, who clocked 70 on Friday.
In a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media, Femi Adesina, Buhari said he rejoiced with Adeboye family and friends for the grace of service that God has bestowed on them.
The statement reads: “As Pastor (Folu) 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.
“President Buhari affirms that Nigeria’s greatness today among the comity of nations derives largely from the prayers and teachings of mothers like Pastor Folu 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.
“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,” he added.
