Akad Nikah Pak Lah
The akad nikah (marriage solemnisation ceremony) between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Jeanne Abdullah at Seri Perdana here will be held at noon Saturday.
The matter came to light when Abdullah corrected Internal Security Ministry Secretary-General Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof’s remarks on the time of the wedding at the ministry’s excellent service awards presentation here Friday.
“It’s at noon,” Abdullah said upon hearing Abdul Aziz mentioning in his speech that the ceremony would take place in the morning.
The Prime Minister’s Office had only announced the date of the wedding without specifying the time.
To be attended by close relatives, the wedding will be a modest affair.
Abdul Aziz congratulated Abdullah, who is also Internal Security Minister, on behalf of the ministry staff.
He then wished Abdullah and Jeanne a long-lasting life together by reciting a “pantun” (a popular form of Malay poetry).
In his speech, the prime minister said he would not reply to the pantun to prevent it from being misconstrued.
“I’ll reply later,” he said, drawing loud applause from the audience.
