Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Owo, Ondo state is though may seem far from Ilorin, Kwara state, but Owo is not far from being of value to an Illustrious son of Ilorin.
That was most likely the conclusion reached when the Princess of Owo and her family considered allowing their daughter Florence Morenike to be betrothed to an Ilorin Mallam Abubakar Olusola Saraki.
Years have passed, Princess Florence Morenike, married to Dr Abubakar Olusola Saraki has given her best, children, peace, submission and even her life into the marriage, till death do them part.
Princess Florence Morenike Saraki is today 88 years younger, bubbling, waxing stronger and enjoying the grace of God upon her life.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands…..Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”
A woman of immense virtue, Mother of Bukola Saraki, my own GRS Gbemisola Ruquoyat Saraki and several others.
Mama Morenike Saraki, no doubt, you have done Ilorin people a lot of good bridging the gap between Ondo state and Kwara state.
As you advance in age, The lines are fallen unto you in pleasant places; Yea, you have a goodly heritage. Continue to will bless the LORD, who hath given you counsel and divine leading to become wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother in Ilorin.
Your better half is no more around but your representation remains of value as all those who knows value will continue to appreciate you in your old age.
Mama, Happy Birthday from us at NATIONAL NEWSBEAM a division of SHARON GRACE MEDIA
