The Federal Capital Territory of Abuja will host the final leg of the fabulous three-city wedding of the first daughter of Senate President Bukola Saraki today Friday, December 8, 2017. And all is set as the Nikkai and reception of Halimat Oluwatosin Saraki and Adeniyi Olatunde Olukoya wrap up the N500 million nuptials that elevated wedlocks to a higher level of glamour and glitz with multiple aso ebi we still can’t stop talking about.
The magnificent National Mosque and beautiful International Conference Centre in Abuja will host the cream of Nigeria as they pray and party at events celebrating the heart-thumping union.
Following the colourful October 21 Ilorin (Kwara state) introduction and superlative October 29 Lagos traditional engagement, this Abuja event will raise the bar as the city of power rocks hither and thither with all the flavours that transform ceremonies to magical.
Bride and groom will adorn eye-popping ensembles along with their wedding train as they are united by Moslem clerics at the National Mosque with prayers of everlasting wedlock and sermons promoting understanding, love, tolerance and perpetual forgiveness recited and preached.
The mosque, opened in 1984 with four minarets and two domes, on Sani Abacha Way, Central Business District, will be awash with pomp and circumstance as families and well-wishers assemble to witness the solemnization of the marriage.
And with legions of legislators from the National Assembly, ministers and high ranking political office holders, governors and billionaires and high net worth tycoons, socialites and silver spoon children of the well-connected as guests, the Sarakis are ready for a rollicking gig at a fun-filled reception at the expansive International Conference Centre.
From entertainment content to lavish food and drinks, the reception venue (on Herbert Macaulay Way, Central Area) will be a haven of splendour where 7-star treatment is guaranteed.
And going by what reeled before thousands of eyes at the introduction and engagement, bliss is promised.
