The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Binta Masi Garba, on Sunday narrated how all that she had was set ablaze by her biological father.

She spoke during a thanksgiving service organised to mark her 50th birthday at the Chapel of Praise International Church, Yola on Sunday.

Binta, who broke down in tears during the service, said God made it possible for her to become a cornerstone after the deprivation and rejection she suffered for accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour.

"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."

In his remark, the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, called for prayers for leaders, particularly Christians holding various positions in the highest level of government in the country.

Osinbanjo said he believes that President Buhari had appointed some of the finest Christians in his government in order to bring real change.
