The heir apparent of the late Second Republic Governor of the former Oyo State, Chef Bola Ige, Architect Muyiwa Ige caught members of the South-West Group of Online Publishers (SWEGOP) off guard on Wednesday when he offered generous prayers for their President, Mr Yinka Agboola.
Agboola clocked 56 years on the day and hosted members of SWEGOP at the corporate headquarters of the PMParrot.com and Parrot Xtra Media Network office at off Ring Road, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Appearing in a causal ankara fabrics, the breezy Ige could not hide his history with Agboola and prayed for him to witness many more years of fulfillment just as he specifically felicitated with him on his safe return from hospital bed following his contact with COVID-19 in 2020.
“We thank God that he survived that pandemic which obviously lacks respect for status. In fact, it is evident that the so-called privileged class of the population in this part of the country, are the victims. I knew Yinka would not die.
“So, we thank God he is here with us today to celebrate his 56 as our egbon, and we are wishing him many happy returns of the day. You shall live longer than your father, your grandfather and your great-grandfather,” he prayed.
The exclusive event was wound up with foods, drinks and cutting of cake, after which a photo session also took place with Agboola expressing his gratitude to the impressive presence of SWEGOP members at the sitting which also served as May edition of the monthly meeting of the association.
