The age-long enmity between the families of Atiku Abubakar and Nuhu Ribadu has finally come to an end as both of them will become in-laws very soon.
One of the sons of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s candidate in the last presidential election, Aliyu, and the daughter of the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Fatima, will be tieing the knot on Saturday, October 3, The Nation reports.
According to Ribadu, the wedding ceremony, in line with the COVID-19 protocols, will be on a low-key in Abuja.
Although both prominent Nigerians hail from Adamawa, the trouble started when the EFCC under Ribadu investigated Atiku's relationship with Congressman Thomas Jefferson who was later sentenced for corruption.
Atiku, who was at the time the vice president in the Olusegun Obasanjo-led government, lamented that he was being witch-hunted by the EFCC chairman.
After the close of the Obasanjo administration, the duo continued as political rivals with Ribadu running as the presidential candidate of the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in 2011 while Atiku was in the PDP.
Meanwhile, the son of Ribadu, Mahmud Nuhu Ribadu got married to the love of his life, Amina Aliyu Ismaila at the Al-Nur Mosque in Abuja.
