President Muhammadu Buhari has joined Christians and their leaders all over Nigeria and beyond to celebrate with the Founder and General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, on his 81st birthday.

The president, in a statement issued Sunday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, extolled Kumuyi for his dedication to soul-winning, preaching of the gospel and counselling, which he said had transformed many lives, and left an indelible mark on the growth of the nation.

He saluted the contributions of the church to the spiritual and moral development of the country, “with testimonies in education, health, roads, water supply and provision of scholarships to the less privileged.”

The president, who shared the joy of another age with the octogenarian, his wife, Esther, other family members and friends, acknowledged the inspiring influence of the many books of the Christian leader, especially the devotionals.

He prayed that the Almighty God would continue to strengthen Kumuyi and his family in good health and wisdom.
