… Wife, staff, pastors take the legislator unawares
The member representing Okigwe South Federal Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives and Chairman House Committee on Healthcare Services, Hon. Deacon Chike John Okafor was, this morning, Saturday 11th November, 2017, in this house, given a surprise birthday by his Wife, staff, pastors from different denominations as well as political associates.
Hon. Okafor who will be a year older on Wednesday 15th, but may not be home to his family due to his National assignment, was indeed delighted to see a selected gathering of people in his abode, drawn from far and new, just to celebrate him.
The list of dignitaries present at the occasion include but not limited to pastors and men of God who prayed for Hon. Okafor and his family.
Responding, Hon. Deacon Chike Okafor expressed astonishment on how his wife and his staff, friends and associates were able to pull such a surprise on him, without his noticing it, as he was wont to be mindful of his environment. He thanked all who contributed in one way or the other towards the surprise bash and wished them God’s Blessing.
In his accustomed style, he broke to a long stretch of gospel songs and ministration which marked the abrupt end of the brief morning gathering.
Apart from Hon. Okafor, his associate, Mr. Livinus Tsar, from Benue State who flew in from Abuja just to celebrate Hon. Okafor also got a surprise as it was coincidentally his birthday too.
