Dame Abimbola Fashola, the wife of Lagos state governor, has recently shared details of their love story and told where and how she met her husband.
The story, made public by Linda Ikeji blog, reads:
"I met my husband at age 27. That was at my best friend's engagement then. I was serving and making sure everyone was okay and well taken care of, attending to people and all that.
And then his father saw me and then said: "I have a son and I will like you to meet my son". So, I said: "No problem, Sir". He said: "Good. My son will soon come in."
When he came, we intoduced ourselves. We met. We exchanged our numbers and that was it. We took it off from there. He was cool, he looked cool-headed. He was friendly. He had no airs about him. He was a simple fellow. He was already working then as a lawyer. He was at Sofunde, Belgore & Co.
He clicked with my sisters too. He was always going to parties with them. He was bubbling with them. I didn't use to go to parties with them. Since my sisters accepted him, I had no choice but to accept him,” she said.
Abimbola Fashola and her husband are passionate lovers of children and the youth. Their marriage is blessed with wonderful kids.
Lagos First Lady has always shown that family is a priority to her. The least every couple can do is to make their families a haven for growth and development in order to secure a better tomorrow. Abimbola Fashola holds this principle dear to heart.
