Senator Binta Masi Garba, representing Adamawa North Senatorial District in Adamawa State during a thanksgiving service to mark her 50th birthday, narrated how her father set all her belongings on fire after she accepted Jesus Christ as her lord and Savior.
Senator Binta said she had always been a Muslim prior to her conversion to Christianity and that her conversion caused a major rift between herself and her father.
“I gave my life to Christ when I was in primary school. My father was infuriated and he burnt everything I had because of my decision to follow Christ. I suffered so much because of the name of Jesus. I would have been nothing if not for His grace. The rejected child, because of my faith, has become a cornerstone. I give glory to His name.”
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Rotimi Amaechi were among the top dignitaries that graced the occasion.
