Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu Celebrates Esama of Benin at 88

I attended the 88th birthday celebration of the conic Sir. Dr. Gabriel Osawaru Igbinedion (Esama of Benin Kingdom) today in dual capacity because I also represented my boss, His Excellency, Mr Godwin Obaseki. 

The celebrant is the father of a two-term executive governor of our dear Edo State, Chief Lucky Nosakhare Igbinedion.

I extolled the virtues of the Esama on the occasion, especially his modest achievements these past 88 years which distinguished him as a rare breed with exceptional competence, capacity and indomitable spirit of excellence.

Indeed, he is a leading light, beacon of hope and source of inspiration to his generation and indeed, the future generation of our dear country, Nigeria.

As he trudges on in life and age gracefully, it is my prayer that God Almighty will continue to imbue him with divine blessing in good health, sound mind and long life.

May God continues to keep him for us as his wealth of experience will remain valuable to us as we continue in our pursuit of Making Edo Great Again (MEGA).
