    BN – you can do better with naming people. You always do a half job when it comes to this.

    For e.g;
    1) The 1st picture – Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Timi Alaibe were not named.

    2) Abba Folawiyo, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo (3rd R), Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi (2nd R) Sen Florence Ita Giwa (R)

    You missed out on Segun Awolowo and a current Governor – Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara.

    3) Adams Oshiomhole (Left)

    You missed out on Andy Uba.

    They are all “public” officials.

    Abba Mohammed!!

    Did his children not attend or you didn’t take pictures of them?

    I like the way Toyin Saraki dresses, her gown is simplicity at its most stunning.
