Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has paid glowing tributes to his wife Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu who clocked a year older on Saturday.
He described the public health advocate in an Instagram post as his cheer leader and prayer partner.
“To my delectable wife, Ibijoke. You have been my source of strength, my prayer partner, my happy place, my supporter, my cheerleader, the co-pilot in our home, and most importantly an exemplary mother to our children,” he wrote.
“There are no words adequate enough to describe, and appreciate you for your strength, resilience, understanding and selflessness as we paddle the waters of Governance in Lagos.”
Mr Sanwo-Olu said his wife understands his true intentions for Lagos despite being misunderstood.
“Thank you for holding forth and strong in managing the home front while also taking on the role of First Lady. Thank you for your passion in speaking up against Domestic and Gender Based Violence. Thank you for seeing the vision of a Greater Lagos with me. And thank you for sharing my true intentions for a progressive, developed, and secured Lagos, despite being misunderstood,” he wrote.

“A very Happy Birthday to a dear sister, and an amazing woman,” he wrote on Instagram.
“The First Lady of Lagos state. Dr. Ibijoke Sanwoolu. May Almighty Allah (SWT) continue to bless and grant you good health. Amen.”
