President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of the Founder and General Overseer of Christian Pentecostal Mission International, Rev Obiora Ezekiel, over the passing of the clergyman.
A statement signed by Femi Adesina, the President’s spokesman which was obtained by The Eastern Updates on Sunday said that Buhari believes the religious leader demonstrated love, peace, and joy in pursuing his passion for soul winning, and worked assiduously for the growth and spread of the gospel within and outside Nigeria, holding outreaches.
He noted the General Overseer’s role in raising many spiritual sons, who have also moved on to mentor pastors, evangelists, and teachers, commending his vision for founding the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
Buhari urged prayers for the family of the departed, particularly his wife and spiritual partner, Rev. Dr. Mercy Ezekiel, praying that the Almighty God will receive the soul of the renowned evangelist.
