Obi’s message read, “My Dearest Wife, I most sincerely congratulate you on your birthday anniversary today. You remain the best partner and the best mother to our dear children.
“Your passionate contributions to the vision of a New Nigeria remain admirable, and your sacrifices for a better Nigeria are very encouraging.
“You traversed every part of our dear nation during our rigorous campaign period, preaching the gospel of the New Nigeria. I celebrate you today as always.
“May God Almighty, who has been with you all these years grant you many more healthy and happy years, and continue to bless you always. Happy Birthday My One and Only Dear Wife. -PO“The couple have been married for over 30 years, having tied the knot in 1993 and are blessed with two children.
Perhaps, Obi and his wife could have wished for a better birthday anniversary had luck shone on the Labour Party candidate at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) during the week.
But the tribunal dismissed all the claims in the petition filed by Obi against the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.
