President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday congratulated General Overseer of Soul Winning Chapel, Reverend (Dr) Moses Iloh, on the occasion of his 86th birthday celebration on February 13.
A statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said “Buhari joins Rev. Iloh’s family, friends, associates and other well-wishers in rejoicing with him as he marks another notable milestone in a fulfilled life of service to God and humanity.
“The President commends him for his numerous contributions to nation building and development exemplified through his pastoral teachings which have brought succour to the less-privileged members of the society.
“President Buhari equally extols Dr Iloh’s endearing humility and integrity and for being a great inspiration to many Nigerians as a philanthropist, labour leader, humanist, footballer and cleric.
“The President prays Almighty God to grant the elder statesman more years of good health, strength and prosperity.”
Iloh is ex-Chairman International Cycling Federation, ex-Vice Chairman International Olympic Committee and ex-board member, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
A dashing winger in his playing days, Iloh was in the first eleven of Plateau Highlander and Nigerian Ports Authority Football Club.
