Fatima Ribadu-Abubakar, daughter of the pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Nuhu Ribadu, has apologised for the controversy her wedding dress caused on social media.
Fatima got married to Aliyu son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar during the weekend in Abuja.
The new bride said in a statement on Tuesday that she wore the dress indoors and that the colour of the dress was the same with her skin which made people think her skin was exposed.
She said: “I cannot expose my skin. My wedding dress has the same colour with that of my skin, but I still apologize to my friends and family who don’t like what happened and I hope to learn from this.”
Top politicians attended the wedding including a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu, Yobe State Governor Mai Buni, former APC interim chairman Bisi Akande among others.
Governors Nasir El-Rufai and Abdullahi Ganduje of Kaduna and Kano states respectively were also in attendance.
