The immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie Oyegun, on Monday celebrated his 80th birthday in grand style in Benin city, the Edo State capital.

Political top shots, including Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Oshiomhole and others many thought would turn up were noticeably absent at the party as a result of a silent feud raging among them.

The National Chairman of the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, and the Edo State Chairman of the party, Chief Dan Orbih, were at the special church service held in honour of the octogenarian.

President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo sent representatives and goodwill messages.

Others spotted at the birthday party included APC governors, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, Governor Godwin Obaseki, former Edo State Governor, Lucky Igbinedion, the Esama of Benin, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Francis Okiye, and the minister designate, Osagie Ehanire.
