The Director General, Oranmiyan worldwide, Hon Olajide Sadiq on Wednesday July 24, attained the Golden age of fifty, and he was full of gratitude to God.
Oranmiyan DG was evidently ecstatic at adding another year, even as his social media pages were bombarded by well-wishes from political associates, friends and family.
Sadiq celebrated his golden jubilee birthday at the Motherless Home, FOMWAN in Osogbo, Osun state capital after a special prayer was said in his house with about 24 Islamic clerics who had earlier stormed his house to offer him the prayer.
The humble and highly intelligent Oramiyan DG decided to spend his special day at the orphanage where he splashed gifts and love on the children in the institution.
Speaking with journalists, he said,
“I’m really grateful to God for adding another year to my life. And I decided to show gratitude and appreciation by visiting an orphanage home to give to those kids from the little I have.
“As we all know that attaining the Golden age of fifty is a milestone, turning 50 years , is a huge achievement, so therefore, I need to give thanks to Almighty Allah,” he gleefully said
Sadiq further explained that, celebrating birthday is not only about the turkey and the feast that follows, it is a quiet reflection of how God is showering His abundant blessings upon you to remember the less privileged ones in the society.
”Everybody deserves to be loved, and I’ll try my best to share the ones I can.”
However, he urged prominent persons in the society to show care and concern to orphanage children in state.
Receiving the gift items, the Amira of FOMWAN, Alhaja Kaosara Adeleke appreciated the birthday boy for celebrating his birthday at their motherless home and for the gifts he presented to them.
She charged the people of the country on the need to emulate good gesture of Oranmiyan DG, praying God to continue to bless and protect the celebrant.
