Had Fatima Dangote tied the nuptial knot with Jamil Abubakar in the middle of last year, a particular popular face would have been at the event. His name is Abdulsamad Rabiu, boss of BUA Group.
The affinity between Rabiu and Aliko Dangote has been on and off but was a little stable mid last year.
Until a faceoff involving mining rights in Edo state reignited tension between them, the duo enjoyed a good friendship.
However, as Dangote gave out his daughter in an event which held in Kano state amidst popular northern personalities including billionaire Mohammed Indinmi, one face which was conspicuously missing was Rabiu. As expected by many, the man simply stayed away from the nuptials.
