Senator Binta Masi Garba has recalled how her father burnt her properties when she gave her life to Christ some years back.
The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District revealed this on Sunday at the Chapel of Praise International Church, Yola.
It was during a thanksgiving service to mark her 50th birthday.
According to Binta who was in tears during the service, it was God who made her the pillar in the family after the deprivation and rejection she suffered for turning a Christian.
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.”
