The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said he was the poorest of all the men who chased after his wife, Foluke Adeboye.
According to him, Foluke left all the famous people to get married to him while he was also least known at the time.
The clergyman made this known in a post on Facebook to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
The post was accompanied by a photo showing the couple standing beside a gigantic cake.
“My darling @pastorfoluadeboye the woman who has suffered with me, she stood by me when we had nothing. I was the poorest and the least known of all the men after her 55yrs ago. But she left all those who were famous, well to do and she picked me. Thank God, God had made us a success and proven all the opposition back then wrong. Here is to 55 more years of double love, double grace, double peace, double of heaven on earth. #PerfectJubilee #CoupleGoals #GodFreedUs.”
