PHOTOS: Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Marks **th Birthday In Style

GE admin December 9, 2011 7

The presiding pastor and founder of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on Thursday marked his birthday with pomp and pageantry with many Nigerian political and business leaders in attendance. The private event was held at the auditorium of his church in Ikeja area of Lagos.

Here comes the question: How old is Pastor Chris? The answer is: No one knows (at least not many).

There has been controversies surrounding his age and instead of him clearing the air on the issue here is what he has to say during an interview with a blogger:


Q – How old is Pastor Chris? There is a mystery surrounding your age; no birthday greetings in the papers carry your age.

Ans – Well, I would say I am a bit fascinated by the media creation of a mystery because none of us created it. I went to schools and so must have registered with my age declarations, I have a passport and my date of birth must be there. I have filled so many forms throughout this country. So for anybody to suggest that there is a mystery about my age seems mischievous. So I think I would rather leave it that way.

Q – Will you like to solve the mystery for us?

Ans – No, it seems mischievous and ridiculous, but maybe I have enjoyed the mystery created by the media over the issue and would just let it be.

Anyways, whatever year he chose to celebrate, here is a belated Happy Birthday from Gist Express (Don’t forget to send our Jollof rice and Fanta sir).
