President Muhammadu Buhari Saturday sent his warm greetings to the General Overseer Emeritus of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria and founder of the Refreshing Ministries International, Dr. Olu Farombi on Sunday’s occassion of his 80th birthday.
According to his Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Buhari joined the Christian community in Nigeria and abroad, family members, friends and Farombi’s co-workers in Christian fold in celebrating the grace of God “upon the life of His humble servant, which separated him early for a life of sacrifice, service and charity.”
According to Adesina, the president extolled Farombi’s loyalty and commitment to the preaching and teaching of the gospel, especially with the establishment of the 10-year-old Refreshing Ministries International, which said inspired preachers across the world and provided trainings on best practices in spreading the love and truth of Jesus Christ.
Furthermore, he said Buhari affirmed that the prayers of the faithful and those of spiritual leaders in Nigeria, including Farombi, and the preaching of the undiluted word of God had immeasurably contributed to the oneness of the country, “further appreciating the former General Overseer for his love, wisdom and resourcefulness.”
He added that the president prayed that the almighty God would pour more grace upon His servant for longer life, good health and strength to continue serving both the nation and humanity.
