- Iris Johnson, an 85-year-old woman has begged Borris Johnson, UK prime minister, to help her wed her young 35-year-old love, Mohammed Ahmed Irbriham
- Though the pair's love relationship started on Facebook, it really took off when Iris flew to Egypt to meet him
- The 85-year-old said the young man is not marrying her for the money as she only lives on pension money
Iris Johnson, an 85-year-old woman got the world’s attention when she revealed her relationship with her 35-year-old lover, Mohammed Ahmed Irbriham.
It did not only stop at that. What really caught worldwide interest is that she begged UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, to help so they could marry.
Iris asked the prime minister to consider her situation as she is way advanced in age than her boyfriend, adding that her wish is to live the rest of life in marital bliss, UK Sun reports.
It should be noted that the pair both met on a Facebook page, after which Iris had to fly down to Cairo, the capital of Egypt, where the two properly fell deep in love.
Though they would have married there in Egypt, Iris could not get some very vital documents that would make the marriage happen.
The frustrated woman said UK diplomats and officials have not been forthcoming despite the many texts and emails of inquiries she had sent them.
She also added that her plan is for Mohammed to apply for a visa immediately they are married. It is on this note that the octogenarian is asking the UK prime minister to speed things up so she could be with her lover.
A part of her letter to Boris addressed the prime minister as a man with a heart, imploring him to help remove the setback their marriage plans have been battling with.
In her reaction to the claim that the young man could be marrying her for her wealth, Iris said that if that is the case, the young man will be disappointed as she only lives on a pension.
Another thing worthy of note is that Iris lives in a £220,000 (N104,348,131.80) bungalow and gets £200 (N94,861.94) weekly as a pension and disability benefit.
