Governor Sanwo Olu has celebrated the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye on his 80th birthday today.
In a press statement issued moments ago, the Lagos state Governor appreciated Pastor Adeboye for being a huge blessing to the state and Nigeria as a whole.
“On behalf of my Family and the good people of Lagos state, I say a very Happy Birthday, and hearty congratulations to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, on the occasion of his 80th birthday today.
Daddy G.O. as he is fondly called, has been a blessing, not just to the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), but also to us in Lagos State. His fervent prayers for us, and his wise counsel over the years have contributed in no small measures to the phenomenal progress our state has continued to witness. To this we say thank you sir.
Sir, your devoted service in God’s Vineyard has helped put Nigeria in the global spotlight as a land of spiritual exploits and greatness. Yet, amidst all these wonderful accomplishments, you have remained as simple and humble as ever, never seeking the limelight or personal glory.
Therefore, as you celebrate your 80th birthday, it is our prayer that the Almighty God grants you more grace, good health, strength and wisdom as you continue to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, minister to the poor and the broken, and proclaim liberty to the captives. Amen.” Sanwo Olu wrote.
