Buhari condoles with Foursquare church over Rev Badejo’s death


President Muhammadu Buhari has sent condolence to the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, and Christendom in general, over the passage of the former General Overseer, Rev Dr Wilson Badejo, aged 74. 

A statement issued by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity) Sunday said the president described the departed as “a dedicated servant of God, who led the Foursquare Gospel Church for 10 years, and was committed to standing in the gap for not just his organization, but Nigeria as a whole.”

President Buhari prayed that God will comfort the entire Badejo family, urging them to take solace in the fact that their father, a veterinary doctor, author, cleric, and public speaker, set a standard to be emulated by all and sundry.
