Despite the apprehension that has characterised the build-up to the zonal Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congress, the two chairmanship candidates in the election, Dr Eddy Olafeso and Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, greeted each other warmly at the venue of the congress.
The duo used their knuckles to greet each other and cracked jokes, leaving delegates in excitement and admiration at the camaraderie displayed by both.
Olafeso was on a telephone call while Arapaja was passing by and decided to greet his opponent.
Olafeso, on realising it was his challenger that was greeting him, stood up, ended the call and extended his knuckles to Arapaja in greeting, with Arapaja also extending his knucles to him, the form of greetings that the COVID-19 pandemic has made people to embrace.
They later took pictures together as some of the delegates who were within the area cheered in admiration.
