Presidential candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi on Wednesday celebrated the founder of Loverworld Ministries aka Christ Embassy Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on his 59th birthday.
Obi said in a Twitter post that Oyakhilome is an “amazing and charismatic” preacher.
“On behalf of my family, I most happily wish the founder and President of Loveworld Inc, also known as Christ Embassy, Dear Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, a happy birthday. You have remained consistent in preaching Christ to the world. You are an amazing and charismatic pastor.
“As you clock 59 years today, I thank God for the gift of you to the church and our nation, in particular. may God protect and bless you always with abundant health and happiness,” Obi said.
In November, chancellor of Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State Gabriel Igbinedion renamed Igbinedion University Teaching Hospital after Oyakhilome.
The teaching hospital, according to Igbinedion, will now be known and called Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Teaching Hospital.
Igbinedion also conferred a honorary doctorate of science on Oyakhilome for his contributions to humanity and development.
