Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola has described Pastor Enoch Adeboye as a detribalised Nigerian, who champions truth and peace in the country.
The governor disclosed this in a statement signed by the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, on the occasion of the 73rd birthday of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Aregbesola said the clergy has lived a truly inspiring life dedicated to service in the vineyard of the Lord worthy of emulation by all especially as the country approaches the next general elections and at all times.
The statement read: “We want to use this occasion of Pa Adeboye’s 73rd birthday to remind Nigerians he symbolises peace and truth and that he has lived a truly inspiring life of dedicated service in the vineyard of the Lord.
“As the country is about entering another period of elections, we need him and other God fearing men on our country to seek the face of the Lord for the success of the forthcoming elections and also offer spiritual support to the nation’s leadership at all levels”.
While enjoining Nigerians to pray for long life for the clergy so that he will continue to wax stronger in the vineyard of the Lord, the governor also pray Almighty God to grant Adeboye long life and the grace to continue to do that which will benefit Nigeria and the world at large.
