Buhari reacts to death of Foursquare Gospel Church ex-General Overseer

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent heartfelt condolences to the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, and the Christendom in general, over the death of the former General Overseer, Rev. Wilson Badejo, aged 74.

The president, in a statement by his spokesman, Mr 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 organization, but 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.

DAILY POST had earlier reported that Badejo died at the age of 74 following a brief illness.

Badejo was the Foursquare gospel church’s General Overseer between 1999 and 2009.
