Husband and wife

Husband and wife

It was like a political jamboree yesterday when the Babangida's hosted the world at their home as HALIMA got wedded to Alhaji Auwal Lawal ABDULAHI, the top notch businessman from Gombe State, who is the Sarkin Sudan Gombe.

Many people who came obviously came to show political alignments and to pass subtle political messages. Imagine that the former President of Nigeria, his excellency, Dr. Goodluck Azikwe Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, came with a high powered entourage that included Dame Peace Jonathan, his lovely wife and many PDP top shots and retired military big wigs, made up of many former Governors etc.

It was an opportunity  to make some subtle statement and people who understood subtle undertones got the message. Imagine that an unprecedented numbers of  aircraft landed in Minna for this wedding, speculated to be at least about 30 plus.

In attendance were such bigwigs like former military leader General AbdulSalam Abubakar, national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governors Abdulahi Ganduje of Kano,  Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara, Aminu  Tambuwal of Sokoto, Senate President, Bukola Sarkin, former Vice President, Namadi Sambo, Hajia Turai YarAdua, Justice Fati Abubakar, Amina Sambo, Retired Air Vice Marshall Hamza Abdullahi, Senator Godswill Akpabio, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara was also present, Ismaila Funtua, Bola Shagaya, Folorunsho Alakija, Aliko Dangote, Tony Elumelu, Mansur Dan-Ali, Senator Ben Obi, Dino Melaye, Dr Okwezili Nwodo, Abubakar Bwari, Nasir El-Rufai, Ahned AbdulFatai Joseph Anenih,, Ahmed Yayale and very many others too numerous to mention.

Alhaji Auwal Lawal Abdullahi as was expected paid the bride price of  N500,000 and 10 cows to his father-in-law, retired General IBB. Retired General Garba Wushishi performed the symbolic ceremony of handing over the bride over, while the Governor of Gombe, Alhaji Ibrahim Dankwanbo, received the bride on behalf of the groom.

Special prayers was offered by Sheikh Kabiru Gombe for the new couple.
