The Aso Villa Chapel on Sunday celebrated wife of the Acting President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, who turned 50 on Saturday, July 15, 2017.

The Chaplain of Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Seyi Malomo, presented a copy of the Holy Bible to the celebrant, which he said is the biggest he has ever seen in the world.

Speaking on behalf of the church, the immediate-past chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC), Deaconess Juan Ayo, described Mrs. Osinbajo as “a godly and virtous woman and mentor of Nigerian womanhood.”

“The paradox of what we are presenting today is an enbodiment 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 virtous wife, a beautiful woman and a supportive wife. She is the mentor of Nigerian womanhood,” she said.

In his sermon titled: “Triumph of Hope,” the General Superintendent of New Covenant Gospel Church and president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev Felix Omobude, said it is significant that the Bible would link the rebirth of a nation to a woman in labour.

Reading from Isaiah 66:8-10, the preacher said only hope sustains a nation, and called on Nigerians to have hope in God that the country would be great in spite of the current challenges.

Quoting from the book of Solomon 5:5, Omobude assured that 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,” he said.

The clergy many children died at the age of five, congratulating Mrs. Osinbajo for making it to 50.

“So let’s thank him. He is God of the night; he is God of the day. He is God when you are happy and he is God when you are not happy. He will continue to uphold you (Mrs. Osinbajo) and everyone. He who has begun this good work in your life will complete it,” he said.
