President Bola Tinubu has praised the wife of the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Folu Adeboye, for her Christian virtues, devotion to her highly-respected husband, the church, and family values on the anniversary of her birthday.
Mrs Adeboye, who is reputed for her evangelical work with children, young people, and the downtrodden, turns 75 today (Thursday).
President Tinubu, in a press statement signed by his Special Adviser, Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, Dele Alake, noted with admiration many of the outreach programmes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God targeted at rehabilitating drug addicts and the poor spearheaded by Mrs Adeboye.
“I celebrate this Godly woman, Pastor Folu Adeboye, on her 75th birthday. We are inspired by her devotion to the work of God, family values, and the downtrodden among us. Mrs Adeboye’s generosity of spirit and unflinching commitment to seeing that young people live value-guided life will continue to be a guide and beacon to many.
“I join family, friends and admirers all over the world to wish Pastor Folu many more years in good health and more service in the vineyard.”
He said the minimum wage should be increased to N100,000 if, indeed, the government has the people at heart.
Ayodele noted that an increase in minimum wage will have a direct impact on the people.
He stated, “If truly the government is concerned about the masses, the minimum wage should be increased to N100,000.
“It will go a long way in cushioning the effects of subsidy removal and inflation. Minimum wage increase will have a direct impact on the people than N8,000 palliative.
“The N8,000 palliative is corruption, I see nothing in the palliative, and it will not reach out to the poor masses. Despite the fact that Mr President has signed it, it will not make any impact. The governors will use it for their selfish needs. The poor will not enjoy it at all.
