Present at the event were four former First ladies, including Mrs Aguyi Ironsi, Ajoke Mohammed,Turai Yar Adua and Fati Abdusalami Abubakar.
Others included first ladies of Kebbi, Kaduna, Niger states while Africa’s richest woman, Folorunso Alakija was around with Bola Shagaya, and other celebrities. Musical groups from all the six geopolitical zones of the country performed to the delight of all those who came while Simbobo, the exotic northern dance group continued to be the main act as they stole the show again.
