Rotimi Amaechi shed tears at Senator Binta Masi Garba’s birthday
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has lauded Senator Binta Masi of Adamawa North Senatorial District for her commitment to selfless service to her constituency.
Prof. Osinbajo made the commendation on Sunday in Yola at a special church service to celebrate the 50th birthday of the senator.
He described Masi as a special person who always focused on the interest of her people, something he said had made her unique as a Christian and the only female senator from the north in the present senate.
The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District in the Senate, Mrs. Binta Masi Garba, on Sunday narrated how all that she had were set ablaze by her biological father after she gave her life to Jesus Christ.
She spoke during a thanksgiving service organised to mark her 50th birthday at the Chapel of Praise International Church, Yola on Sunday.
Binta, who broke down in tears during the service, said God made it possible for her to become a cornerstone after the deprivation and rejection she suffered after accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour.
She said, “I gave my life to Christ when I was in primary school. My father was infuriated and he burnt everything I had because of my decision to follow Christ. I suffered so much because of the name of Jesus. I would have been nothing if not for His grace. The rejected child, because of my faith, has become a cornerstone. I give glory to His name.”
The colourful church thanksgiving service was attended by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, Boss Mustapha, Senator Nelson Effiong, who represented the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, and the Founder, Chapel of Praise Church International, Archbishop Fred Addo.
