Ven Aiyegbusi, Appreciated baba to not have belittled him age wise nor as a man of God who he comes to discussing his spiritual life with at all time.

*Evangelist Olufemi Akande @ 80*
It is my pleasure to congratulate Evang. Olufemi Akande on this auspicious occasion.
Attaining the age of 80 moreso by someone who has gone to fight in the civil war, involved in Mitasine fight quelling in Kano and a police officer for many years shows that God really showed mercy on him to have survived all these deadly wars.
Though the Lord says “He will show mercy on to whom he pleases”. I believe that Evang. Akande really enjoys God’s mercy hence his evangelistic work after retiring for receiving God’s favour. Ever since we met at Immanuel Ang. Church, Asi we have been relating as age mate not minding the disparity in our ages. His exemplary life of simplicity and humility transcends that of a policeman and it’s really worthy of emulation. As a Father and husband, I have imbibed so many qualities in his relationship with his wife and Children. He is very generous and always ready to assist in all forms not minding the cost to him. As to his relationship with God, I can attest that he is committing his resources and time to serve his God. My prayer is that as he celebrates this milestone, the Almighty God will continue to endow him with good health, state of mind and body. Age with grace of the Almighty God in happiness and wealth. Many happy and prosperous returns.
