Bisi Fayemi, wife of Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi, took to Twitter on Wednesday to celebrate her husband on his 57th birthday.
Mrs Fayemi had celebrated her own 57th birthday in 2020.
The couple has been married for over 30 years. They have a son, Oluwafolajimi Fayemi.
Fayemi and his wife met while they were students at the University of Ife, now Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).
Also, elected governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have commended Fayemi, who is the chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) for his leadership, vision and commitment to a united and prosperous Nigeria.
The governors, under the auspices of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), in a congratulatory statement described him as “a true progressive and innovative leader.”
Chairman of PGF and governor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Bagudu, in the statement, also acknowledged the immense contributions of Fayemi to the progressive community in the country.
“We acknowledge your contributions to our team of Progressive Governors through your insightful and resolute inputs to the processes of managing governance in Ekiti State as well as at the national level.
“As Governor of Ekiti State, through all the development initiatives being implemented by your APC-led government, we affirm that you are a true progressive and innovative leader.
“As we rejoice with, HE. Kayode Fayemi, we also reaffirm our collective commitment to implement programmes that would strengthen the capacities of our progressive states to create jobs, reduce inequality and diminish poverty in Nigeria,” the statement read.
