Speaking with Saturday Beats, Yeni said: “It feels good to be 60 years old, though I don’t feel different from when I was 59. But at 60, I feel more celebrated as a person. I feel lucky and happy with who I am. I am grateful for everyone dear in my life who loves me. I am happy for all the works that I have done thus far that have yielded success. I did not expect such extravagant gifts such as a car and a piece of land from colleagues and well-wishers at all.
“As a matter of fact, I should not have hosted a birthday party; it was like an anti-climax. I was grateful that the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu graced my birthday. I feel that he is a genuine man. I believe he really wants the best for the state. There is no basis for maligning him and I am not at loggerheads with the Lagos State government in any way. When former governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, was there, we also had a good relationship with him. He supported the Afrika Shrine.”
