Members of the Aso Villa Chapel on Sunday honoured the wife of the Acting President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, who turned 50 on Saturday.
The Chapel led by the Chaplain, Pastor Seyi Malomo, presented a giant bible and a portrait to Mrs. Osinbajo.
Some Chapel officials also joined her to cut her birthday cake during the service.
A former Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission, Mrs. Juan Ayo, paid glowing tributes to Mrs. Osinbajo who she described as a “mentor of Nigerian womanhood.”
“The paradox of what we are presenting today is an embodiment of the lady we are presenting this gift to. Even at 50, she still wears innocence of an infant. She is a godly woman, a virtuous wife, a beautiful woman and a supportive wife. She is the mentor of Nigerian womanhood,” she said.
The General Superintendent of New Covenant Gospel Church and President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Rev. Felix Omobude, in his sermon titled “Triumph of Hope,” said it was significant that the bible would link the rebirth of a nation to a woman in labour.
He urged Nigerians to have hope in God that in spite of the difficult challenges facing the country, Nigeria will be great again.
Quoting from Solomon 5:5, Omobude said since Nigeria is a God’s project, “Our God never gives up on his project.”
“There is no room for the self-defeated in this world and we must know that challenges is part of life. Life would have been boring if there are no challenges. So, I call on everyone to embrace God’s provision and know that we are his divine project.”
While praying for Nigeria, Omobude said under this government, truth and equity will reign in Nigeria
“Nigeria is God’s project and Nigeria of our dream will be delivered,” he said.
Prayers were aslo offered for President Muhammadu Buhari’s quick recovery.
The choir and children in the church presented various songs to honour Mrs. Osinbajo.
Children also presented a cake and flower to the wife of the Acting President.
Those who attended the service included Mrs. Osinbajo’s father, Mr. Olutayo Shoyode; and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang; among others.
