William Ruto’s Nigerian son-in-law sends congratulatory message

President-Elect William Ruto’s son-in-law Alexander Ezenagu has congratulated him for being announced the president-elect.

In his congratulatory, Mr Ezenagu attached photos him and Dr Ruto.

“Congratulations to my father-in-law on your election as the President of the Republic of Kenya. We trust in your ability to deliver your manifesto,” the message read.

The Nigerian national also quoted his president Muhammadu Buhari’s congratulatory message to Dr Ruto.

“I congratulate the President-Elect of Kenya, William Ruto, on his victory in the August 9, 2022 general elections. I wish him a successful inauguration and tenure in office, while also looking forward to more fruitful and robust engagements between Nigeria and Kenya,” President Buhari’s message read.

Last year, Ezenagu tied the knot with Ruto’s firstborn daughter June in an invite-only event that took place at the DP’s official residence in Karen.

In some of the videos and photos from the lavish wedding, a beaming Dr Ruto – donning a black suit and matching hat – perfectly executed his fatherly duties of walking his daughter down the aisle while being assisted by his wife Rachel who was also elegantly dressed.

The bride was radiant in a white off-shoulder dress and held a bouquet of pink and white roses on her last day as a single woman.

Dr Ezenagu holds a Bachelor of Law from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria and is also a graduate of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. He currently is an Assistant Law Professor at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Qatar.
