MILITARY ADMINISTRATOR, OSUN STATE, NIGERIA
DECEMBER 1993-AUGUST 1996
God provides us with so many blessings and the Bible reminds us that he never leaves our side — so as you or your loved one steps into a new year, share the Lord’s unwavering love with them. It’s truly the best present anyone could ever ask for.
My family celebrates you today, as always, on another occasion of your birthday anniversary that we have never failed to remember since our paths crossed as ordained by the Lord. We appreciate the grace of God upon your life that has been characterized by faithfulness and love for your close associates. Apart from my parents, you were the very first helper of destiny that I encountered and you played this divinely ordained role excellently.
TESTIMONY: God does speak for the voiceless. I remember that fateful day when you required somebody to manage your image as Military Administrator of Osun State. I was sleeping in Ibadan when my phone rang for me to show up in your office on Monday January 10, 1994 shortly after returning from a long overseas course. I never knew you and never expected the call of Saturday January 8, 1994 because I never even knew my name would be mentioned. You told me later that God raised two voices that I never begged or knew would speak for me! I was amazed! That same God is still alive today and will be alive forever. ”It is not by might nor by power”
Oga, ”The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. Proverbs 4 vs 18
Many happy returns of this blessed day sir. The Lord continue to bless you and yours sir.
