Nigeria’s Senate President Ahmed Lawan, has picked for himself a new wife. This is coming days after he said Nigeria is a poor country.
Lawan reportedly got married to a new wife at a very private ceremony in Borno State which is currently battling insurgency.
According to reports the Senate President’s new bride is Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid, a pretty young Shuwa Arab girl.
The low-key marriage was said to have been solemnised at the Sheikh Sharif Ibrahim Saleh’s mosque in Maiduguri on Friday June 25.
Reports further said the event was performed secretly to avoid public criticism while Zainab is expected to relocate to Abuja on Sunday. A mini party was also held at the bride’s family residence in Gwange 1 Ward, Malut Shuwa Street, Maiduguri.
“The Senate President of Nigeria, Lawan, got married to a young Shuwa Arab Girl at Maiduguri. Her name is Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid. They got hooked after Jumu’at Prayer on Friday in Maiduguri. The bride will travel to Abuja on Sunday. The ceremony was done secretly. The Senate President didn’t attend the Nikaah, but he sent a delegation to go and get it done.
But the bride did her ceremony at their house in Gwange 1 Ward, Malut Shuwa Street, Maiduguri” a source claimed.
The senate president, when contacted by newsmen through his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, said he was at the airport. A text message sent to him was also ignored.
This development is coming days after Lawan said that Nigeria is a poor country explaining why President Muhammadu Buhari should continue to seek loans for infrastructure.
