Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, got married today, May 15, to Lara Fortes, in Benin, and he had nothing but sweet and kind words to say about his new bride.
While speaking to journalists during the wedding, Oshiomhole, described his wife as “very understanding, caring and loving lady and also thanked his family for the support given to him to remarry.”
“This is something that one is happy about. One is also happy that I have friends across all political divides, this occasion reminds me that across all divides we have friends and well wishers.”
“She is very humble, she appreciates the nature of my job and life and, that it is, one comes back home late. Some times 3am, she understands my weaknesses, she is more or less the mother of the house, the one that has accepted to be the mother of my children.”
“I am happy that all my children are at home with her and accept her as their mother even though she is not old enough to be their mother. She has accepted to fill that gap.”
Oshiomhole would also set the records straight about where she comes from, saying: “I have seen a lot of publications, some saying that she is Philipino, Dutch and several others, but she is from Cape Verde. And that is part of West Africa. And I hope that ought to rest the debate of where she is from.”
