Very few people know that Elizabeth R’s boss, Ibidun Ighodalo, has children. Yes, children.

The soft-spoken and amiable lady does have kids despite having a fertility problem that has rocked her boat for several years.

The wife of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo who got married in February 2007 shared a picture with her children, as they celebrated recently, and unveiled a motherly side of hers known to very few people.

Ighodalo was all smiles, as she laid on the bed with her adopted children a boy and a girl looking very happy. Indeed, the kids  Keke and Zenan were equally happy with her.

Below is the post she shared on her IG page with the picture above:

Where do I start? You are such a loving and kind Father it’s incomparable. Your wisdom and might is unrivaled as is your knowledge. You know the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end because time truly exists in you.
You knew me before you formed me and you knew my life’s journey and you prepared for me every step of the way…. My choice of a life partner though questioned by many was a divine masterpiece by you… You already saw the struggles and you knew the perfect fit for me… you knew who could handle the storms of life with me and you blessed me with a wonderful husband, friend and lover. Ever so supportive and loving. Supportive through almost a dozen episodes of IVF, never wavering, there for every test and doctors appointment. With all the societal pressures and shaming you held me and comforted me in my low times. Even when that did not work out you were already planning something mind blowing. How else could I explain the burden you laid on my husband heart to establish an orphanage even before our marriage? This same orphanage gave me my beautiful daughter who again has your hand in her life. Born on the same day as myself and named by her dad after me (such prophecy) and brought to the orphanage. Even when I did not recognize your hand it was there till our eyes saw that which was always in front of us. Again ever supportive, my husband was in support of our choice to go in that direction. The way you piece our lives jigsaw puzzles astounds me continually papa. Out of the blue a call comes to my phone and my darling aunt says I’ve seen your son. Come and pick him…. Not a clue to the process I started in faith and you made a way and Zenan became ours…. Even when I’m not thinking about myself you are thinking about me and putting my thoughts in the hearts of people. Seeing my son is a moment I would never forget. The bond was instant, and love was in full flow. How could I ever have orchestrated my life as perfectly as you have done. I’m so glad I have you papa because your ways are not my ways and your hand is evident in my life.

Thank you Father for making a way, for guiding me, for holding me, for giving me joy, for sending me peace and for completely showing my family Favour. Papa my prayer would not be complete if I don’t ask you to open the eyes of my other women trusting you for the fruit of the womb to have an open mind to different ways of becoming a ‘MOTHER’. So many children are out there looking for love and a home to call their own. I pray they experience the joy of motherhood as I do now and open their hearts to you to listen to as many options as you have provided….. Adoption does not mean you have failed them but is a way of showing what blessings you have in store for them if only they will yield to You…. a blessing which is priceless… I thank you for my two adorable kids, I could never trade them for anything in the world…. looking forward to your instruction on looking after more children ? ?

Love you endlessly papa

Yours Forever
Ibidunni your beloved. ? @tybello ??

What Next Tonye Cole?

Published

Tonye

The saying that a bird in hand is worth more than two in the bush is not alien to Tonye Cole, co-founder of Sahara Energy.

However, there are men who still aspire to build castles in the air irrespective of if they reside in them or not.

Perhaps, this explains the saying that if a dream does not scare the dreamer, it is not big enough.

Cole might not be one with a tall ambition, but he is a man with an amazing dream and this informed his decision to leave a certain future as an Executive Director of Sahara Group to contest for the office of the first citizen of Rivers State.

Having swum through the ocean of murky political waters and lost the opportunity to contest the election, the next phase of the man’s life is what is attracting a lot of interest now.

It Is A Privilege To Be Alive At 50-Otunba Tomori Williams

Published

on

Otunba Tomori Williams

Humble, amiable and principled describe Otunba Tomori Williams, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TW Construction. He recently threw a classy birthday party to celebrate his 50th birthday. In this interview, he speaks on life at 50 and what has kept him going.

Do you consider turning 50 years a privilege?

It is a great privilege considering the fact that many could not even see a whole day from the date of their conception. So, it is a privilege that will always remain indelible in my mind, and I will be grateful to God for it. So, I am very very grateful to still be alive, and I pray that the Almighty God will grant me the grace to grow older than this in Jesus name.

What is now different?

Nothing aside from the fact that it makes me feel that I am growing old. Nothing.

So you dislike the fact that you are growing old?

It crosses my mind occasionally and I reflect on the fact that I have actually turned 50 years old. So, it is something that one would have to reflect upon. It is the reason why the Bible says that it is always important to celebrate one’s age because it will call you to the point of wisdom and sober reflection, a reflection of successes, downfall, and progress in life.

What informed the lavished party you threw to celebrate your new age?

I am not a party person, I don’t celebrate. In the past, it has been my well-wishers, my staff and friends that celebrate me. Even at that, I still make sure that it doesn’t get to the level of playing music. I am not a social person; I love my privacy a lot. To answer your question, you mark this kind of event once in a lifetime. I think turning 50 years is worth celebrating. Celebration in terms of celebrating God in my life, celebrating his presence, his goodness, his faithfulness, and loving-kindness towards me because I know that it is only by his making and his power that I could have gotten to this level. So, I didn’t celebrate anything, I celebrated God and what he has done for me. That was the essence of the party.

What are you grateful to God for?

For the gift of life. There is an Italian maxim that says ‘Doms Peri Peri’ when there is life, there is hope. It is the life that gives hope to everyone. It is what a man is and what he is going to be. So, my appreciation goes to God.

You share your birthday with some powerful Nigerians, what impacts does this have on you?

It doesn’t mean anything. My date of birth is just the day that the lord almighty assigned me to be part of the entire universe. That day is just a date shared by a lot of other people in the world.

Humility is not always synonymous with the rich, yours is an exception.

Personally, I have not changed my old habits, I am still Tomori Williams. My humility is firstly from God because you cannot form any habit of your own except it is what God has actually mapped out for you. I will also give glory to God for my mum and dad, especially my mum. She actually played a lot of role in my present upbringing. Fortunately or unfortunately, I wasn’t brought up with a silver spoon. So, the aspect of being humble actually is synonymous with my upbringing. From the start, I looked at everybody as equal. Sometimes, when I am around my staff you hardly know who the boss is. On many occasions, clients have come to the office asking that they want to see Otunba Tomori Williams; that is the grace of God. The humble part of me is as a result of God’s love and perfection of my personal self.

What tale does your life story tell, inspiration?

Inspiration, I might not say yes. This is because I didn’t have any key role model. Seriously, I never really looked up to anybody; I have never said that I want to be like anybody.

Not even Justice Anthony Akpovi of Olotu Property?

Justice Anthony Akpovi was my mentor; I will give that to him any day or time. He is another humble guy; he is now almost an old man. Nonetheless, I will attribute my humility to God’s gift. It is just the grace of God.

The real estate industry is a place you play large in, can you tell us about your contributions

What I am grateful for is helping to change the landscape and the infrastructural and housing placement within the mainland and its environs. Basically, I will sit back and give glory to God for the new Olaleye project which is still ongoing. Also, I have done some landmark repossession jobs that I will sit back and give glory to God. The Gbagada repossession project is one that will remain indelible in my mind. To God be the glory because the best is yet to come. We have a number of other projects that will completely change the landscape in the mainland and especially the coastal line.

My style has no serious baring in life. When I was in university, one of the essences of you reading Philosophy was reading Philosophy 101.  We had a topic called the first course. Do you know who the first course was, that is the Lord Almighty. Whatever you are is the doing of God. I have seen a lot of people that are proud and full of themselves but are still rich. It is the lord almighty that distributes these things; I am just very fortunate, very very fortunate to be counted as somebody that is at least comfortable to feed morning, afternoon and night. Humility has its own advantages and disadvantages. To me, it has really helped me, but I can’t say it is what defines what God has done for me in terms of material gains. Whatever I have today, my belief is that it is not because of any form of wisdom or any form of knowledge. It is just the grace of God.

Has it gotten to the point where people take advantage of your humility?

People will always take advantage of you. Being humble has its own side effect, but it should not form any basic criteria for people to abuse you. You can be humble and be firm; you can be humble and be decisive. I am humble but I will not let people take advantage of my humility. Humility doesn’t mean people should be excessively gentle, its two ways. People taking advantage of your being humble is something I can’t really understand. But being gentle does not make you foolish.

What is the next phase of your life?

Every year in a man’s life is a turning point. 50 is just a number, it is one of the numbers in a man’s growing years, but I strongly believe that it calls for serious sober reflection. A man must sit down, reflect on where he is coming from, where he is and where he is going. The days of taking rash decisions, being unnecessary aggressive, the days of being reckless should be over. That is the way I looked at it. 50 should be a year to reflect soberly and prayerfully decide the next steps you want to take in life.
