“He is an exemplar deserving of recognition and reward to encourage more people to continue to follow the precepts laid down by our faith,” ,” the PFN president said.

He congratulated the former National Vice President (North-Central) of the PFN, Rev. Yakubu Pam, on his appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari as the Executive Secretary, National Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC).
