The Thread: IBB shuts down Minna like he did in Lagos, 1989 [PHOTOS]

General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida gave out his daughter, Halima Babangida in marriage to Auwal Abdullahi, a businessman, at the Hilltop mansion in Minna yesterday. The event was quite the crowd puller. ThisDay captioned it “10 Hours of Laughter, 10000 VVIPs, 35 Private Jets, Tons of Bi-partisan Goodwill in Minna”.

The operative words are bi-partisan goodwill, with good reason. Disregard the blame game that political parties play. Pay no heed to the mudslinging on social media and pages of newspapers. These photos prove that whatever antagonism exists, the political class is one.

Do see below:

Look at that!

An event like this, which drew all and sundry of the political elite could not pass by without Twitter NG remarking on it it.

Here goes:

Now, that’s clout.


A trip back in time

By the way, “Dateline: Dodan Barracks 1986, 31 years ago, Halima Babangida had just been born at First Consultant Hospital, Obalende, Lagos. Delivered by Dr. Benjamin Ohiaeri. She was named in a ceremony attended by high octane individuals, who are today, drivers of modern Nigeria.”

And what better way to send her off, if not in the style in which she came. Tolu Ogunlesi takes us back in time:
