President Muhammadu Buhari has sent heartfelt condolence to the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, and Christendom in general, over the death of the former General Overseer, Rev. Wilson Badejo, aged 74.
The president, in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Sunday in Abuja described the departed as “a dedicated servant of God who led the Foursquare Gospel Church for 10 years.”
He noted that the deceased was ”committed to standing in the gap for not just his organisation, but also for Nigeria as a whole.”
Buhari prayed that God would comfort the entire Badejo family.
He urged the family to take solace in the fact that their father, a veterinary doctor, author, cleric, and public speaker, set a standard to be emulated by all and sundry.
