By: AJAGBE ADEYEMI TESLIM
Lagos-based journalist and publisher of popular Nigerian online platform August24news.com, Mr. Ajagbe Adeyemi Teslim, has concluded plans to present the Chief of Staff to Lagos State Governor, Mr. Tayo Ayinde, with a golden birthday frame.
The presentation has been scheduled for August 24 as part of activities to mark Tayo Ayinde’s 59th birthday.
Our reporter gathered that Ajagbe shares the same month and date of birth with the Lagos State Chief of Staff, Mr. Tayo Ayinde, thus necessitating the golden frame offer and based on the good role played during the last gubernatorial election in Lagos State.
Ajagbe was born on August 24, 1983, while Mr. Tayo Ayinde was born on August 24, 1964.
The giant modern frame, which was said to arrive Nigerian through the Muritala Muhammed International Airport on Monday from Dubai Emirate, was said to be a 40 by 60-inch frame that contained the photographs, names, and positions of another 24 distinguished Nigerians who were born on August 24.
They are: Winner of the 1999 Presidential Election, Late Mko Abiola, Lagos State Chief of Staff, Mr. Tayo Ayinde, Former Governor of River State, Mr. Nyesome Wike, Former Governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada, Former Lagos Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adeyemi Ikuforiji, Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Saad Abubakar, Nigerian Super Eagle Goalkeeper, Mr. Peter Rufai, Nollywood Star Actress, Mrs. Funke Akindele, Nollywood Star Actor, Osita Iheme, Communication Strategies Alhaja Rafiat Gawat, First Chief of Judge of Lagos State, Chief Idowu Taylor, and August24news publisher Ajagbe Adeyemi Teslim.

According to Ajagbe, given the rationale behind the concept and the birthday frame, August 24 is believed to be a unique date of birth among the 12 months in the calendar, and people born in the month of August are born to be great and no doubt a leading factor in their founding fields, particularly those born on the unique date of (24).
Speaking further, Ajagbe said the birthday gift frame has nothing to do with any political party, profession, tribe, or race, adding that other celebrants on the list will also receive the gift as much as they are available.
The frame was well designed by a Dubai-based Nigerian award-winning graphics artist known as Walex Graphics and framed by one of the leading Dubai frame companies known as Gilberto Frames.
Findings reveal that the frame cost a whopping sum of 600 dollars for both the graphics design and golden frame settings from the United Emirates of Dubai.
