Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, is already warming up to stage an elaborate birthday party for his mother, Alhaja Lateefat Olufunke Gbajabiamila, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, starting from today, March 2.

The party is expected to run until March 10 in the arid gulf city. Nigeria’s political bigwigs are expected to grace the occasion.

Already, reservations for guests have been made at the Conrad Hilton Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, where the least room goes for $122 (N43,920) per night, when calculated by 300 guests, it amounts to $36,600 (N13,176,000).

Calculated for the eight nights that guests will be housed at the hotel, the total comes to $292,800 (N105,408,000).

A member of the planning team for the lavish celebration hinted SaharaReporters that some guests have been booked for special and luxurious accommodation and that top personalities not slotted into private jets have already been booked for special seats on commercial airlines heading to Dubai.

According to the source, Gbajabiamila could be spending well over N500m to ensure his mother gets a befitting 90th birthday celebration going by the calibre of guests that would be gracing the occasion.

The Speaker is said to be keen to celebrate his mother in a big way given the pivotal roles she has played in making him successful in politics.
