Tinubu, Umahi, el-Rufai others attend Aisha Buhari’s Iftar dinner for Presidential aspirants


Some 2023 Presidential aspirants were on Saturday treated to an Iftar dinner organized by President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha.

The dinner, which took place at the Old Banquet Hall, State House, Abuja, commenced about 07:00 pm. Dignitaries began to arrive at 06:20 pm.

Those in attendance included National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State; Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige; and Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State.

Also in attendance were Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna; former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Barnabas Gemade; sacked lawmaker and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; and Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio.

The First Lady had on Thursday invited Presidential aspirants across political party lines to the Ramadan Iftar.

In the invite, the First Lady had urged all invitees to attend the Iftar dinner without their phones. But the security measure was later resolved in favour of some public office holders including Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo.
