It was an evening like no other. A memorable one that would linger for a long time.

Indeed , this was a special celebration of a strong pillar in the Nigerian community of the United Kingdom as he marked his 60th Birthday. 

A well respected and celebrated man, Councillor Adedamola Aminu, a former Mayor of Lambeth and one who has made an indelible mark in the line of his career was described as a man of unassuming demeanour, easygoing,  amiable,  kind, and one who is always ready to lend a helping hand.

The ovation was high as family, friends, close associates, dignitaries,  community leaders and of course well wishers from far and wide gathered to celebrate him.

Obviously, his political achievements in the UK, as many have come to agree with, is a true testament to his resilience, determination, and unwavering commitment to bettering the lives of others.

Aminu put people first. Little wonder, many who attended the event saw it as a unique opportunity to honour his service, selfless dedication and wisdom to the community.

It was a lovely event with the warm colours of blue and white renting the atmosphere. The ambience, in a way, exhibited the nature of the man of the moment. 

A true patriarch of his family,  he was surrounded by his delectable wife, Dolapo, proud children, and excited grandchildren.

The event also proved to be an extended base of the community, where many stakeholders enjoyed laughter, took selfies, and basked in the joyous moment of the celebration of an Icon.
