Buhari Commiserates With Paul Adefarasin Over Mother’s Death
President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the pastor of House on the Rock church, Paul Adefarasin, on the passing of the matriarch of his family, Mrs Hilda Adefarasin.
Hilda died at the ripe old age of 98.
In his condolence message, the President recalled that the late Adefarasin’s passion for helping the vulnerable and less privileged which manifested early in her professional life as a Nurse, continued to resonate through her whole existence, using every resource at her disposal to further this worthy cause.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
“President Buhari notes that her roles as an activist and campaigner for the rights of women and their empowerment defined the National Council of Women Societies where she was President, among other positions, making the Council the most potent voice for women advocacy in Nigeria today.
“The President urges the children, especially the Metropolitan Senior Pastor of House on the Rock, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, to build on the foundation laid by their mother in using their godly platforms to make positive impacts on humanity,” the statement added.
