2022 was a very challenging year for the All Progress Congress chairperson, in Abeokuta North, Ogun State, Alhaja Faidat Akintunde as she was accused of allegedly abusing the powers vested on her in the state.
A few months after taking over the helms of affairs, naysayers accused her of imposing her anointed candidate on the party ahead of the 2023 general election.
However, the amiable woman was able to erase the negative impact the previous year had on her and started on a celebration mood in 2023.
The influential woman recently clocked 60 years and rolled out the carpet to celebrate the landmark age. A hashtag, #apinke@60 started trending among society women and female politicians ahead of the much talked about event.
A lace aso ebi in green colour with a touch of yellow was the choice attire of the day. While men had their white Agbada with green caps on. The aso ebi was sold a few weeks prior to the event and most of her friends ensured they complied with the dress code by patronizing the celebrant.
Held in the highbrow area of Abeokuta in Ogun State, the well decorated hall was filled with guests who came to throw their weight behind the politician.
Tributes poured in for the woman of means who has impacted many that crossed her path in the political arena in Ogun State.
