The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Abiodun Ige Adams, celebrated his 50th birthday on Thursday April 30.
Since there is restriction of movement in Lagos, he had to celebrate with his wife and kids.
But for Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the globe, Aare who had always celebrated his birthday in a grand style, would have rolled out the drums.
Adams said he celebrates his birthday in a big way because of the blessings attached to such acts.
“I often tell people that each year, I celebrate my birthday to receive more blessings from God. Over the years, God has been so good to me and the rest of my family. I can’ t thank God enough for the inestimable blessing bestowed on me.Annually, I always have reasons to celebrate my birthday anniversary. That is why I invite people from across the world to celebrate with me.”
Adams explained further that the birthday party has become his annual ritual, adding that it is always good to appreciate God.
However, at 50, he said he would devote the rest of his life to charity and service to humanity.
Dedicating this year’s birthday to God and to the memory of those that have lost their lives to the raging COVID-19 global pandemic, the Yoruba leader said he would be focusing more on charity to the poor and the less privileged people in the society even as he promised to continually touch the lives of the people positively.
Iba Adams, who marks his birthday annually with several activities, including visits to motherless babies homes, informed also that Nigerians, especially from the South West, would begin to feel his impact through initiatives that would add value to their lives.
