Mummy Dearest...Governor Akinwunmi Ambode Celebrates Mother at 85
She has gone through the motions of life with equanimity and grace. Through the shrill clang of trials and pain, she emerged victorious as the roughhewn ore returns finer, like burnished steel from a steel forge. Thus as you read, Madam Christianah Ambode, the mother of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, evolves as worthy inspiration to generations of family and friends alike. Some days ago, her son, the governor of Lagos State and his siblings threw a classy party at the Haven, GRA Ikeja, to celebrate as she clocked 85.
Mama is no doubt a pillar of trust, hope, compassion and support to everyone around her, particularly her family members. She never shies from giving them crucial and beneficial moral support in the most trying and pleasant moments. She is undoubtedly their guiding light through the wilderness of life and their interminable gust of calming wind on life’s stormy seas.
Expectedly, the guests were top politicians, businessmen and high net- worth dignitaries, thronged the venue in a circus of conformity. The event was indeed a memorable one; political associates, friends and family members of the Ambodes deserted the humdrum of their daily lives to celebrate with one of their own.
