The Ajimobi family including Florence Ajimobi, their daughters and other entourages visited the Kano State Government House to perform the Lefe ceremony for the bride.
The Lefe is the Hausa customs whereby the groom’s family buys all sorts of gifts ranging from jewellery to clothes, wrappers, underwear, cosmetics etc for the bride.
The visiting groom’s family and other First Ladies visited the Emir of Kano who has been playing major roles in the wedding ceremonies. The eminent visitors were received by, among other personalities, the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, and Alhaji Ishyaku Rabiu.
The Emir who accepted the Ajimobis’ proposal on behalf of the bride’s family described the union as a positive ingredient in cementing relationships across tribes and geopolitical zones and destroying stereotypes between southern and northern Nigeria. He said, “I am pleased that two leaders of this country at a time when this country is most in need of reminders that we are all Nigerians.
We are part of one common humanity descended from one man and one woman, made from the same earth decided to apply this teaching to show an example to all of us.” The Emir continued, “No superiority for the light skinned over the over the black skinned or black skinned over the white skinned all of you are from Adam and Adam is from the earth. The reason I quote this Hadith is to remind all of us that tribalism, racism and all these ‘’isms’’ that are based on ethnicity have no place in Islam. Marriages are unions especially when they come from prominent families. They are not just unions between boy and girl or man and woman, they are unions of people, they cement relationships, they improve understanding, they breed love and respect, they destroy stereotypes”, Emir Sanusi added.
