General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye and his wife Foluke have joined in celebrating former minister of education Oby Ezekwesili on her 60th birthday.

The couple made a video of themselves singing the birthday song and sent to Ezekwesili who is a member and pastor at the RCCG.

In the video, the 81-year-old Adeboye said, “Hello, beloved Obisco. Little by little, my little girl is now 60 years old. What a wonder! Congratulations. We want you to know we love you, we appreciate you. You’re very very special. So, we’re singing for you.”

The cleric and his 74-year-old wife then sang for Ezekwesili before showering her with prayers.

Ezekwesili shared the video of the couple on her Twitter page on Sunday night. She said, “You never grow old in the eyes of your parents; not even when you celebrate 60! Such a beautiful birthday message from my beloved Daddy #PastorEAAdeboye and Mommy #PastorFAAdeboye. I am blessed and deeply grateful.”

Ezekwesili clocked 60 on Friday, April 28.

A symposium moderated by comedian Ali Baba was held to mark her 60th birthday. Present at the symposium was the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 election and also former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi; governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers in the March 18 poll, Tonye Cole, among others.

Twenty-four hours before her birthday, Ezekwesili received a surprise gift from three of her friends in Lagos.

Her friends sent a group of saxophonists to serenade her in preparation for her birthday.

The economic policy expert and former vice president for the World Bank’s Africa region shared the photos on Twitter.
