Mr Onyiye Olomu said, “He never needs any introductions. When he appears anywhere, the ambience reflects his handsome persona accompanied seamlessly by his charming smile.
“He’s Ray! That young man who has become an enviable exemplar among youths.
“I have wondered oftentimes why it is that anytime one meets him, he charms. I have however also noticed that behind that façade of beauty does lie a heart of gold.
“That must actually be one reason his sense of altruism or philanthropy is so renown.
“Today, Ray is a source of hope to the downtrodden. His hands now feed many. Indigent children who ordinarily can’t access the vistas that education offers can now dream and actualize it. Many widows have found succour in the arm of his love which has become God’s instrument of hope to many.
“There’s equally another reason I always celebrate him. It is that Ray is never drunk with the vinegar that power offers.
“He’s been in power corridors but never has he showed the nauseating mannerism and gait that now characterize the average young politician who sees political power not as an instrument of service but as one to perpetuate an oppressive demeanor and dominion.
“My big brother Ray, I am celebrating you on this auspicious day of your birth because you deserve it.
“I am also praying wholeheartedly for you that the candlestick of your glorious destiny will never be extinguished in the prime of your days.
“Its your day, so enjoy it to the fullest Sir.”
