By Michael Adesanya/Abeokuta

Family members, friends, associates, Clerics, and church members of Victory Life Bible Church in Abeokuta, Ogun State, have poured encomiums on the wife of the Setman, Apostle Lawrence Achudume, Reverend (Mrs) Fola Achudume who turned 55-year-old today.

Notable among the people who honoured Mrs Achudume is the wife of former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Mrs Bola Obasanjo.

In her birthday wish, Mrs Obasanjo disclosed that the celebrant has not only carved a niche for herself in christendom, but has also done a lot in the areas of women empowerment and advocacy.

Mrs Obasanjo who described Mrs Achudume as a perfect match and pillar of support to her husband, urged the womenfolk to always be submissive, as well as respect, honour and be there for their husbands and children at all times.

She also advised people, especially women not to be envious of one another but rather see ways they can lift others.

Mrs Obasanjo explained that it is only when people take time to know the purpose of creation that they can appreciate the essence of life and human existence.

She therefore pointed out that when an individual relies on God especially during trying times, the impossible becomes possible, imploring people to be patient and focused wherever they find themselves.

The wife of the former President, added that Mrs Achudume was a reflection of her husband, saying that women who get married to famous men must have it at the back of their minds that the spotlight is always on their husbands.

Mrs Obasanjo observed that the warm ambience and the joy on the faces of the attendees at the Auditorium attest to the fact that the Celebrant is well loved and held in high esteem.

Husband of the celebrant, Apostle Lawrence Achudume, while extolling the virtues of his wife, declared that he could not have wished for anyone better.

Other Clerics and their spouses at the event, took turns to pray for the Celebrant, urging her to continue in her good deeds and service to humanity.

The Celebrant, Mrs Achudume, thanked everyone for coming, letting out that she decided to use the occasion of her 55th birthday to offer prayers and praises to God for his grace and benevolence.

A frontline gospel artiste, Dare Justified was on hand to dish out soul lifting renditions as attendees danced heartily to the melodious tunes, while the highpoint was the cutting of the Birthday cake.
