Buhari congratulates Mbang at 80


President Mu­hammadu Buhari has joined the Chris­tian community in celebrating the 80th birthday of Prelate Emeritus, Methodist Church of Nigeria, His Eminence, Sun­day Coffie Mbang.
ThePresident con­gratulated Mbang and members of his family as he clocks the milestone age in good health and a rich legacy of a life lived in the service of God, his nation and humanity, said an Aso Rock state­ment.
“As a former Prel­ate of the Methodist Church and Presi­dent of the Christian Association of Ni­geria, the President believes the legacy of the former Prelate of always working towards reconcili­ation, reconstruc­tion and revival in all leadership posi­tions, aptly captures the central message of the Bible, which is love.
“President Bu­hari assures the for­mer Prelate that his efforts in pursuing unity in the body of Christ and the country will always be remembered by posterity, especially in co-chairing Nige­ria’s Inter-Religious Council (NIREC), a government body responsible for the promotion of inter-faith dialogue.
“The President also commends the courage of the His Eminence in al­ways speaking out against tyranny, corruption and so­cial ills like immo­rality, cultism and drug abuse in the country”, the state­ment added.
