Pastor Sam Adeyemi, the founder and Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, clocked 55 years on Thursday and his wife, Pastor Nike, celebrated him.
The cleric’s wife took to her Twitter page to hail Sam Adeyemi as her friend, lover, husband of her youth and caring father to their children.
She also appreciated God for the special day, thanking her husband for being a blessing to her and to those around them.
Pastor Nike wrote, “Grateful this day and always for my friend, lover, husband of my youth, caring father to our children, pastor and leader of leaders.
My Sweetheart, Sam Adeyemi is 55 today! Thank you, Lord. Thank you for being a blessing to me and all of us. #happybirthday #samadeyemiday.”
Members and followers of the Sam Adeyemi took to the comments section to send good wishes and prayers to the cleric.
Asides from being a cleric, Pastor Sam Adeyemi was one of the notable voices in support of the #EndSARS protests which rocked several states in Nigeria and some parts of the world two years ago.
He, alongside others like, musicians Burna Boy, Davido, and Falz; comedians, Mr Macaroni and Taaoma; and activist, Aisha Yesufu, was sued in November 2020 as vocal supporters of the #EndSARS protests.
The suit was, however, halted by an order of a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory in January.
