• Northern elite cement social and political relationships by getting their kids married to each other

Again the wedding bells toll in Nigeria’s northern region. Like persistent, soothing draft of the north wind across the Pacific, glad tidings of love and pleasurable wedlock rent the air from the exclusive circuits of Nigeria’s northern elites. Halima, the beautiful daughter of former Borno state governor and factional Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu-Sheriff, is set to wed her fiance, Captain Ronnie Dankabo, who is the son of late business mogul, Mohammed Adamu Dankabo.

Their wedding is slated to hold in Maiduguri in December. Expectedly, Modu Sheriff is leaving no stone unturned to give his daughter a wondrous wedding. Until their union, they were like jagged pieces of two glass hearts yearning for their missing parts. Then they found each other and fit perfectly in place. The first molded with the second and in the heat of the moment, held from head to toe. A perfect masterpiece, a love so high it despises going low. Predictably, many people are eager to be part of the memorable celebration.

The couple’s wedding is one of the several weddings taking place among the wards of superrich northern families. And the northerners have surely mastered the art of partying like the southerners. Over the last few months, silver spoon kids from the region have engaged in high octane society weddings as if wedlock is going out of fashion. From Atiku to Buhari, Shagari, Ali Modu Sheriff , Indimi among others, the wedding bells toll delightfully and invitingly. Pundits however, aver that the weddings are mainly strategic. Highly informed sources argue that prominent aristocratic families of the north are deliberately getting their kids married to each other in bid to secure their social, economic and political futures.
