The last may not have been heard about the celebrated 60th birthday of Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State as notable personalities stole shows with surprised birthday party. The governor had invited Islamic clerics to his palatial bulletproof mansion erected at Ibara GRA in Abeokuta to give God the glory for the good things in his life @60. Despite the fact that, it was a short Muslim prayer that was organized by the governor himself, no fewer than 120 Muslim leaders were present at the session. In fact, rumour mongers informed that, the least money a cleric carted away at the event was N20,000 while the senior Alfas went home with about N100,000 each. Majority of the governor’s inner caucus graced the occasion. Among those who attended the special prayer were his commissioners, the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, senators from Abuja, ministers, all council chairmen and councillors, foreign investors among others.

Governor Amosun who could not hide his joy, thanked the former president for this gesture.
