Eki Igbinedion returns!
Former First Lady of Edo State, Eki Igbinedion, ceased to be in the limelight after her husband, Lucky Igbinedion’s tenure as Edo State governor, ended. Even the pet project, Idia Renaissance, which she launched during her time in the Government House, faded into oblivion.
Becoming less frequent on the social scene, she chose to spend more time overseas and visited countries like South Africa, United Kingdom and the United States of America, where she took up temporary residence.
A lover of fashion, especially fine jewellery, she made a rare showing at a family function last week. Gorgeously attired, she played an active role at the traditional wedding of Orobosa Igbinedion, who got married to Umar Mantu, the son of Senator Ibrahim Mantu.
The wedding, which took place at the palatial residence of the bride’s father in Benin, was attended by the crème de la crème of society. The families spared no expense to host a lavish revelry.
