Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Gov. Dapo Abiodun, General Ike Nwachukwu, Chief Gbenga Daniel, Hon.

The Doyen of Nigerian fashion was, expectedly, exquisitely dressed for the occasion and was literally on her feet most of the time, receiving her guests and dancing, almost non-stop, to the admiration of all the dignitaries that graced the first class gathering.
