•As ALTON boss turns 40

Rev. Odejimi made this call at the thanks giving service in honour of chairman, Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), Mr. Gbenga Adebayo, who turned 40 recently.

He also urged Christians to believe in God since they cannot count their blessings, adding that it is difficult for non-believers to count their blessings.

While commending Mr. Adebayo for his steadfastness in Christ Jesus, Rev. Odejimi asked Nigerians especially upcoming Christians to emulate the character Mr. Adebayo has been endowed with in his life so far.

“Gbenga is a God fearing man and he has been strong in his believes,” the priest declared.

He, therefore urged the congregation to always make themselves available for God amidst their busy schedule in making life a better place for themselves and their families by remaining nearer to God at all times.

The thanksgiving service was attended by who-is-who in the telecommunications sector.

This included the former Communications Minister, Chief Cornelius Adebayo, executive director, Multi-Links/Telkom, Chief Ezekiel Fatoye, chairman, Interconnect Clearing House, Admiral Allison Madueke among others.
