Compassionate and humble Bolaji Makinde enters Octogenarian Club
She is not only still strong at her age, but she is also ageing gracefully. Last Wednesday would remain evergreen in the life of Madam Bolaji Makinde when she entered the octogenarian age grade. And she was well celebrated in a simple but classy reception graced by her family members, children, grand-children and great- grand-children, as they turned out in large numbers to celebrate a mother they described as one-in-a-million.
The ceremony began with a short thanksgiving service at The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Ebute-Metta, where a prayer was offered for more years in good health for her. Well-wishers then moved to her 135, Ibadan Street, Ebute-Metta residence in Lagos, for the reception. The event was rounded up with the cutting of a huge cake after which guests were feted to sumptuous meals.
Some of the dignitaries that graced the occasion were Alhaji Rafiu Ebiti and wife, Hajia Adebisi, former Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo and wife, Erelu Angela Adebayo, Honorable Commissioner for Environment, Hon. Dr. Samuel Babatunde Adejare and Alhaji Yomi Rufai, former Commissioner for Works, Ekiti State, Mr. Sola Adebayo and brother, Yinka Adebayo, Managing Director, Accurist Marine Limited, Mr. Kunle Makinde and Chairman, Ogun State Internal Revenue Department, Mr. Kunle Adeosun.
