I have read about many past and present great women in the world. Their individual greatness or popularity was mostly attributed to education, humanitarian services, versatility, wealth, royalty, sterling leadership acumen among others. Unlike others, I have, however, found all these qualities in just a woman and that’s Her Excellency, Barr. Toyin Ojora-Saraki, Founder and President, Wellbeing Foundation for Africa.
Your Excellency, I truly feel so lucky for having you as my godmother. This is not only owing to the fact that you are one of the world most celebrated heroines but also that every engagement I personally have with you has always been a learning class for me towards being a better person in life. You are indeed an encyclopedia of knowledge so to say! For me, you are the most incredible woman with whom Lagos, Kwara, Nigeria and Africa are blessed.
Your birthday is not just the day to appreciate your obvious pivotal roles in the life of my leader, your handsome husband, His Excellency, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki CON, but also for me to show you how much you mean to me and celebrate the great things you have done in the lives thousands of Kwarans, Nigerians and Africans through your most respected health support and charity organizations, WFBA.
I mostly marvel at why Your Excellency keeps looking younger even at age 56. Then, I later realized your youngness is not unconnected to the happiness you derive in putting smiles on the downtrodden faces and simple life albeit you were born with sliver spoon.
Happiest birthday to my ever-young, versatile, smart, caring, simply amazing and loving Godmother! I wish you tons of blessings today and forever!
