Abuja is unquestionably the city of power and panache, where your status is pretty much defined by your taste and who you hang out with. For extremely beautiful Hajia Basirah Sulaiman, the Chief Executive Officer of Bestest Abaya, only the high and mighty knock her business door. So, when the First Lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari came calling at her Omega Centre shop, Wuse 2, Maitama, Abuja, recently to feed her eyes and shop, it was no big surprise.
According to Hajia Sulaiman, it was an honour to have the country’s number one woman in her shop with her entourage. Of course, the First Lady’s taste in things of exclusive splendour is widely celebrated.
Hajia Sulaiman’s shop cater only for the upper-upper crust of the society. Her clientèle includes the Abachas, the Tambuwals, the Muazus, Yar’aduas, Ado Bayeros, Dasukis, the Danjumas and many more.
Affirming her goldfish credentials, the Bestest Abaya’s CEO defines her business as “ luxury is attention to detail, originality, exclusivity and above all quality”, this is a statement many elites in the country are saying ‘amen’ to.
