Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, the immediate-past governor of Delta State, on Monday, serenaded his wife, Roli-Nere, with sweet and romantic words on the occasion of her 60th birthday anniversary.
In his deep tribute titled, “For My Darling Praying Wife At 60”, the elated former governor described his wife as loving, caring, dependable, supportive and above all, God-fearing.
“For every man, God created a woman.
“For every woman, there is a man.
“Sometimes we find it nearly impossible to meet whom God has created for us. Then we go round and round, doing trial and error and fall into wrong hands.
“I was lucky to meet mine over 34 years ago. Since then, we have been through thick and thin.
“God has increased us with children and grandchildren. He has increased us with material things. He has seen us through several challenges, including navigating us through landmines that would have exploded and consumed us.
“Lord, for ALL THESE, we are eternally grateful. Thank you for the multiple blessings you have showered on us.”
Dr. Uduaghan further prayed to God to strengthen his wife in all her endeavours, while wishing her a memorable, joyous and fun-filled birthday anniversary.
“As she grows older Lord, envelope her with good health, grace, wisdom and strength to accomplish the tough physical and spiritual tasks you have given her.
“Happy 60th Birthday to the wife of my youth and my old age.
“Age gracefully,” he wrote.
