I just attended the wedding
reception of President’s
Jonathan’s daughter, Faith and
her husband, Godswill. I am sure
most of you saw it live on
television but I just might write a
behind-the-scene review of what
happened in the hall which you
could not see. I might write that

Let me just give a slice of it; all
these big men you guys see in
power and out of it are all
hustlers like you and me! The
rush to enter the hall, ehn?
Captains of industries and
Government officials were in a
flux and fight to enter the hall
which was barricaded by stern
security men at the International
Conference Centre.
The protocol is that once the
President enters the hall; the
doors are shut and no one gets
in or out till the President leaves.
So, there was a scramble to
enter. Me sef shame for some
people. Chai!There were rumpled
and creased clothes on people
after the scamble. A couple of
ladies lost their headscarves and
headties and gave us shocking
glimpses of their ‘Abolo’ heads!

The President’s Security detail at
the venue were stern but
professional. They didn’t give a
hoot who you were. Orders are
orders. Everyone who entered;
those that mattered wanted to
be seen by the President or First
Lady and a small line of diffident
favour-seekers or friends was
formed but many could not pass
through the security detail to just
greet Mr President.

Let me shock you guys a bit. The
biggest critics of President
Jonathan, the opposition parties
or cliques, the rabble-rousers
and all were mostly there at the
wedding! I was shocked! Ehn!
Politicians! That’s how they
deceive you all by crying wolf and
abusing the President yet they
run to him to prostrate at night
or in private!Those of you who
follow blindly these people una
go see! Be careful!
I even saw Dele Momodu, who
lambasts President Jonathan
every week for the past four
years on Thisday backpage on
Saturday, taking pictures and
going round shaking hands. He
shook my hands too. Egbon!
Look, in politics there are no
permanent friends or enemies:
just permanent interests!

I must hand it to GEJ, he shielded
his family from public glare. I
mean; how many of us know he
has three biological children and
three adopted with this new
bride being an adopted child he
took in about 15 years ago? Very
The couple got gifts of over 60
brand new cars as presents from
what a close source told me.
‘Bastardly rich’ Nigerians fell over
themselves to give presents. Chai!
There was a group of orange-
scarved women who caused a
stampede in the hall after the
wedding rushing for gifts and
stuff! Wetin? People nor get
shame? The presents given to
the guests were magnifique! Not
anything ostentatious but just
