Oby Ezekwesili’s husband clocks 70


March 24, (THEWILL)- Pastor Chinedu Theodore Ezekwesili, husband to Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former Minister of Solid Minerals, recently clocked 70. To celebrate her husband’s milestone, the former Minister of Education, alongside some close friends and relatives, threw him a party in the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT).

The two-day festivities, with Frank Nweke jnr chairing the birthday committee, began with heartfelt tributes from the celebrant’s friends, colleagues in the vineyard of the Lord, family, associates, members of the congregation, etc. This was followed by a symposium themed, ‘Purposeful Men’ in honour of his 70th birthday and ’70 minutes of praise’ at Glory Tabernacle Parish.

During the symposium, Pastor Ezekwesili said his dream at 70 was to see Nigeria become a super nation God had made it to be. He said the country, as currently managed, might not attain its full potential, hence the need to restructure for effective nation building.


Present at the party proper to felicitate with the celebrant were Abia State Governor, Alex Otti; Minister of Works, Dave Umahi; former presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi; Labour Party governorship candidate in Edo State, Olumide Akpata; Pastor Jerry Eze and several others.

Music to serenade guests was strictly gospel music and it was provided by the choir of the church he pastors. A very unassuming man, Pastor Ezekwesili is the founding Pastor of The Everlasting Arms Parish (TEAP), Abuja of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, a mustard seed he planted some 24 years ago which has since blossomed into ‘RCCG TEAP Zone’, comprising dozens of parishes with a strong family of people spread across several countries.
