Nigerians react as First Lady quotes Bible’s verse in birthday message to husband, Tinubu 

Oluremi Tinubu, Nigeria’s First Lady, went spiritual on Friday and quoted a Bible verse to honour her husband’s birthday.

News24 Nigeria reports that President Bola Tinubu turned 72 on Friday.

In a message on her verified X handle titled ‘Happy Birthday, My Love. “AKANBI, OMO OLODO IDE”, Oluremi quoted the Book of Songs of Solomon to express delight over the president’s birthday anniversary.

“As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. Songs of Solomon 2:3,” she wrote, adding, “May you live long in divine health, joy, and peace.”

Recall that while Tinubu is a Muslim, the First Lady is an ordained pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

Meanwhile, some X users who commented on the First Lady’s post congratulated her and the President on the birthday celebration.

Others, however, drew attention to the present hardship in the country.

“Your laughter has caused many homes tears. Instead of celebrating, you all should be brooding and seeking forgiveness from your Lord for the numerous hardships you’ve caused the common man in Nigeria,” MohdBashir AbdulYekeen said.
