Newly wed Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has revealed to close confidants the role incoming president of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, played in convincing Cape Verdean Beauty, Lara Forte, to marry him.
According to “Oshio”, his new better half almost said no to his proposal, until General Buhari saved the day by winning the elections.
“My Brother, I am lucky”, he told FNN correspondents. “If Jonathan had won, I would still be a single man right now”.
“She clearly stated she would not live in Jonathan’s Nigeria, but as fate would have it, the People’s General prevailed, and I am now a happily married man”.
When asked about the role Buhari will play in his marriage he said the General is like a father to him, and as such, would be their main source of advice as a married couple
