Last Wednesday, Angolan Embassy in Nigeria marked 40 years of independence at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, as the embassy hosted its friends, associates, diplomats, business partners and government officials to a classy evening celebration of pure fun.

On the 11th of November, 1975, the former Portuguese territory got her independence. Led by its ambassador in Nigeria, Dr Eustoiquio Januorio Quibato, the Angolan embassy rolled out the drums to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its nationhood. Quibato in company of his pretty wife… cheerfully welcomed every guest with a warm smile and handshake.

In his welcome address, Ambassador Quibato paid tribute to the contributions of Nigeria and other countries , towards the achievement of his nation’s independence. He noted that since the independence, a lot of progress had been made in different aspects of life to make Angola a success story in Africa. He stressed that his country and Nigeria have a lot in common, noting that a lot of business concerns and partnerships exist between Nigeria and Angola.

On a lighter
note, I had the privileged of meeting with the former, Governor of my state (Abia State) Chief Orji Uzor Kalu courtesy of my boss Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, the Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas industry that sent a VIP invite to me and my colleagues (Nazor, Sheri, Uche, Ify, Ann and Amina). We felt we were under-dressed for the event because we were informed to go represent him 20 minutes to the event. Our nerves were running wild because of the tight security at the entrance area, as nobody wanted to be embarrassed by any wishy washy individual.

Finally, all we did was to mention our boss’ name, and we were immediately ushered to go sit in the executive area. I was simply amazed! At first, we thought we would be bounced because the event was strictly by invitation… Finally, it was time for the much anticipated ITEM 7… I got my groove on as I ate and drank my heart out. I simply didn’t give a rat ass if anybody was watching, as I stylishly downloaded what I knew and felt my fashionable stomach wouldn’t react to. See more photos below:
