Former military President Ibrahim Babangida, known in his glory days as Maradona, may still be onto some playful prank, mischief or to prove that political hatred is just for the game of politics.
At the wedding reception for Babangida’s second daughter, Halima in Minna today; Babangida, or may be the event managers/uchers made the former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the former president Dr Goodluck Jonathan who Tinubu played a pivotal role in ousting from office, to sit side by side.
Babangida sat next to them, perhaps to meddle in their discussion or frackers.
But what will they be discussing? What will be running through the minds of the two political giants? Did Tinubu ask the father of Democracy in Africa when he would write the story of the election he lost to Muhammadu Buhari or did he (Jonathan) congratulate Tinubu for being sidelined by the Buhari administration?
Now against all odds, we would also observer that the battle of power did not resent them from sitting together for the purpose of joining Halima with her husband, proving that political differences are put aside and the human factor is represented.
Also present at the event is the wife of Jonathan, Dame Patience better known as Mama Peace who is sited among the women and the senate president Bukola Saraki.
What do you think they probably discussed?
