On Saturday the 12th of April, the daughter (adopted) of the president of Nigeria, Elizabeth Faith Sakwe got married to Godswill Osim.
Well, the wedding was just like a normal wedding, you know 'boy meets girl ends up in a joyful celebration' except that since she was the president's daughter, everyone was kind of expecting money to be thrown around and excessively lavished and it was just as it was expected.
How would you describe the guests going home with customized gold plated iPhones in their gift bags? Gold plated iPhones as wedding souvenirs? Yes, you read it right! This happens only in Nigeria! Just to add, those that could afford to attend that wedding are those from the rich social class so believe me when I say they will all return home and dump those phones in a few weeks. What does that make this? The most wasteful adventure ever!
Think about all that could have been funded with all that money. Never mind! He's the president. Nobody needs to ask questions.
All we need to do is to continue reading reports on Nigeria that highlights corruption as the major setback and pretend like we do not see the glaring evidences everyday.
Oh well! "Someday, things will change." Same way it has done in the past decade
Enjoy your Sunday lovelies
