The family of President Goodluck Jonathan dedicated their grandson in a special thanksgiving ceremony at Living Faith Church, Lokogoma, Abuja.
The new child was born to Mrs and Mrs Godwin and Faith Edward. Faith Sakwe is the daughter of the former President Goodluck Jonathan who got married in 2014 to Godwin Edward at the Abuja Ecumenical Centre.
The child dedication was attended by former First Lady Patience Goodluck Jonathan. She was received with cheering from the congregation. This will be their second grandchild from the marriage between Godwin and Faith.
The Resident Pastor Adekunle Shiyanbade specially prayed for the family and child. President Goodluck Jonathan was not present because of an engagement in Adamawa State, Nigeria.
At the end of the service, Patience Jonathan was presented with a gift by the resident Pastor on the behalf of the church.
It is no longer news that Nigeria’s Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has different shades that he adorns since the ascendancy of President Muhammadu Buhari as the President of Nigeria. History will continue to have it on record and of course, to the credit of President Buhari for allowing him (Yemi Osinbajo) to act as President while he goes on vacation or medical trips in London. As much as it is a constitutional expectation, the distrust and the scheme for power in Nigeria has made it look strange and major in politics around the world.
When President Muhammadu Buhari goes on such vacations and Yemi Osinbajo takes up the role as Acting President, everyone including staunch Buharists and the opposition admit the difference even in 10 days. The longest of those medical vacations in 2017 with many thinking that President Buhari was dead, under Yemi Osinbajo as Acting President Nigeria moved up in the World Bank ranking of the Ease of Doing Business. This was made possible by a number Executive Orders he signed within that period.
