Former Ogun State Governor Mr. Ibikunle Amosun and his wife Olufunso have celebrated 30 years of staying married.
The governor whose first daughter, Ayomide married Oladipupo Dabiri (son of Abike Dabiri) celebrated the special day with his wife in Lagos with family and friends in attendance.
They are blessed with five children.
Taking to Instagram, former Ogun State First lady, Mrs Olufunso Amosun shared photos of their celebration. She also thanked her husband for sharing 30 years of his life with him.
She wrote, “30 years and still counting… HWA husband, thank you for 3 decades of unconditional love💗”
Amsosun is one of the rare husbands many women pray for.
In 2018 during a meeting in Abeokuta with party members, he revealed that he has never slept with any woman but his wife, Olufunso in 27 years!
In a veil reference to his political rivals, the governor said: “They gather some people, sit in one corner and write rubbish, thinking that such will shake me, I don’t lose sleep over such things.
“I have married for almost 27 years now, I have my children. I do not have extra marital affair since then. How can I engage myself with unscrupulous things? I have called my children and told them not to bother themselves with any rubbish that might be published about me, because as a governor, I cannot have any private life again and I warned them to be careful of their actions and inactions.
“Thank God, my children are all matured. They understand what is happening. They are not bothered at all. “My wife even challenged me that she heard that somebody gave birth to twins for me. I told her that there was nothing like that. I told her not to bother herself on the matter because there was no iota of truth on the matter,” he told the large audience, including traditional rulers. He added: “I do not have plan of marrying another wife now. That is not part of my plan now. One wife is even a problem.
When I am 70 years old, I can then marry another wife, because I and my wife must have grown old and we will need a younger woman who can take good care of us.”
