The thanksgiving service was part of activities marking the third year anniversary of the quadruplets.
She described her children as bundles of joy and prayed God to bless, prosper and equally use them to bring him glory.
She said: “First I want to thank this great God of heaven because today we are marking the third anniversary of this special gifts from God.
“After 15 years, he turned away our captivity. When men thought it was over, he, God, said it was not over.”
“I stand before this great God to say there is no other God like him. Today I stand before him to say our joy is full. Today I stand to say this great God of heaven can never fail”.
The governor’s wife also expressed appreciation to family members, friends, associates and the clergy for attending the service as well as for making the day memorable for the children.
