SAN FRANCISCO, March 01, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm congratulation to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, as he turns 74 years on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.

According to Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, the President believes that the revered Christian leader, who paid him a courtesy call at the Presidential Villa on February 16, 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,” Adesina revealed.

“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.”

Adeboye oversees the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Nigeria's largest Christian association, where the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is also a member and pastor of one of the parishes of the church in Lagos.
