IN THE NEWS: Edo’s Governor Adams Oshiomole gets married – Tola Adenle

May 16, 2015


News out of – and all over – Nigeria this weekend is about the wedding of the widowed governor of Nigeria’s Edo State, former labor leader, Adams Oshiomole to a foreigner described as a Cape Verdian, or Ethiopian.

Mr. Oshiomole lost his first wife five years ago.

The wedding, which took place at his Etsako West Local Government Marriage Registry and had top functionaries of the Governor’s Nigeria’s APC ruling party among whom were the President-Elect Muhammadu Buhari and the Vice-President-Elect Yemi Osibajo, is rumored to have also been solemnized in Western Germany. It is not unusual in Nigeria to have rumors pass around as facts since distrust of the ruling elites is rampant.

Here is wishing the Governor and his new bride marital bliss.
