Adeleke turns prayer warrior on Dele Momodu’s 64th birthday

Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke

Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke displayed an attribute of himself that is not commonly seen when his friend Dele Momodu celebrated his 64th birthday in Lagos on May 16.

Widely known for his dancing skills from his days as a senator, Adeleke turned into a prayer warrior at Momodu’s Penthouse.

In videos posted on Instagram by the Ovation Magazine publisher on Monday, the governor is seen conducting worship songs, praying and making the sign of the cross on the celebrant and his wife Mobolaji.

Adeleke began by giving a speech that when one wakes up in the morning and finds his or her body parts working normally such person should praise God. Holding Momodu’s hand, he described the day as a joyful one.

Adeleke then held Momodu and wife by their shoulders and began to pray for them in English and Yoruba. He also made the sign of the cross on their foreheads and blew a gentle breeze on them.

“Our governor, Ademola Adeleke is such a prayer warrior,” the celebrant captioned one of his Instagram posts.

The Osun governor led Ovation Magazine editor Mike Effiong, publisher and author Azuh Arinze and others in singing to honour Momodu.

The gathering at the penthouse came after Momodu held his inaugural leadership lecture at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs as part of activities marking his birthday.

The lecture themed ‘The Politics of Energy and The Way Forward’ had in attendance the likes of former President of Ghana, John Mahama, Peter Obi, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Adeleke, former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke; and the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
