Obi’s attendance at the son of APC leader is a symbol of united Nigeria – Akpabio



During an APC leader’s wedding in Kano State, Obi unexpectedly showed up.

Godswill Akpabio, the president of the Senate, said that Peter Obi’s attendance at the son of an All Progressives Congress (APC) leader’s wedding was a symbol of “united Nigeria.”

On Friday, August 18, 2023, in Kano State, Obi, the presidential flag-bearer for the Labour Party in the general elections of 2023, attended the wedding of Abdullahi, the son of Deputy Senate President Jibrin Barau.

Other prominent members of the APC, led by Vice President Kashim Shettima, who represented the groom, also attended the wedding.

The bride, Bilkisu Aliyu Sani Madaki, the daughter of the House of Representatives’ deputy minority leader, Aliyu Sani Madaki, was represented by Hon. Tajuddeen Abbas, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Speaking to the media following the ceremony, Akpabio stated that the fact that so many well-known people attended the wedding proved the groom’s father is a man of the people.

The Senate President declared, “You can see that even Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, and his people are here; this tells you that Nigeria will remain united as one entity.”

The ritual was held in accordance with Islamic traditions by Sheikh Abdullahi Mahmud Salga, the Chief Imam of the Isyaku Rabiu Juma’at mosque.

Many people were surprised to see Obi at the wedding because of his ongoing legal struggle with APC national leader President Bola Tinubu.

At the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT), Obi and Atiku Abubakar, the counterpart from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are presently contesting Tinubu’s victory.

Following the poll on February 25, Tinubu was proclaimed the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with 8,794,726 votes, as opposed to Abubakar’s 6,984,520 and Obi’s 6,101,533.
