Tinubu congratulates Oyedepo at 69, Awolowo at 60
President Bola Tinubu has felicitated with the Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide (Winners Chapel International), Dr David Oyedepo, on his 69th birthday.
Tinubu affirmed that the words and works of wisdom demonstrated by the visionary gospel leader continue to resonate within and beyond Nigeria, impacting greatly on the economy in the areas of education, healthcare, infrastructure, banking, publishing and transportation.
The President acknowledged the strides of Oyedepo in pursuing personal, intellectual and spiritual development for humanity, while encouraging many to grow through teaching of the Word of Faith with results in expansion of the ministry.
President Tinubu said the lifestyle of the Bishop, reflecting in his teachings on love, peace, prosperity, faith and wisdom, remain exemplary, even as his dedication to building lasting institutions and a God-fearing generation speaks of his unequivocal commitment to God.
The President, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, yesterday, prayed God to continue to fortify and multiply His grace on Oyedepo and his family.
Similarly, Tinubu joined other Nigerians in celebrating President of the National Trade Promotion Organisations of the Economic Community of West African States, Mr Segun Awolowo, as he turns 60.
He also shared in the milestone with the scion of Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s family, while congratulating the former Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) for sustaining the legacy of the family in public service.
The President commended the zeal and wisdom Awolowo brought into the positions of leadership he previously held, with an admirable profile of working with every President of Nigeria since 1999, while leaving behind his trademark works of excellence at every stage.
Tinubu further commended the sacrifices of the legal practitioner, who accepted the call to serve the country at a young age, and continues to inspire younger generations to imbibe virtues of excellence and patriotism in service.
