Oniru of Iru Kingdom, Oba Abdulwasiu Lawal, has taken to social media to share stunning photos in celebration of his 53rd birthday.

The monarch via Instagram on Monday shared photos in which he is seen in a stylish white suit, a black bow tie, a black hat and a black pair of trousers.

As it is his custom, Oba Lawal listed five prayer requests, noting that he was grateful for life.

He wrote: “In gratitude to the Almighty and with a deep sense of reflection, I say Alhamdulillah for another year!” he began.

“Gratitude for life, for loved ones, for Iru Kingdom, for blessings, for great achievements and even the little things.

“Reflection on the journey so far, the many roads not taken, the hurdles crossed, challenges surmounted, the storms weathered, the impact made and felt; and the path that has led up to this very point on this journey to excellence.”

Oba Lawal listed his prayer request thus: “A request for peace in Iru Kingdom, Lagos, Nigeria, Africa and in the world.

“Grace to live long in good health and abundance to touch more lives.

“Direction of the Almighty to live well and do His will in all I do.

“Protection for us all, our families, all that we own and that gives us joy.

“Blessings on all of us, our endeavours and all we own.”

Oba Lawal became the 15th Oniru of Iruland on June 7, 2020 after the death of Oba Idowu Oniru (Akiogun II) in September 2019.
