Senate President, Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, allegedly got married to a new wife at a very private ceremony in Borno State.

 

SaharaReporters reports that the Senate President’s new bride is Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid, a young Shuwa Arab girl.

 

According to the report, the low-key marriage was solemnised at the Sheikh Sharif Ibrahim Saleh’s mosque in Maiduguri on Friday June 25.

 

The event was reportedly performed secretly to avoid public criticism while Zainab is expected to relocate to Abuja on Sunday. A mini party was also held at the bride’s family residence in Gwange 1 Ward, Malut Shuwa Street, Maiduguri.

The bride was said to have bought three houses in Maiduguri out of the money.

 

“Lawan personally gave her N100 million days after he saw her pictures. The money was so huge that Zainab bought three houses here in Maiduguri,” the source said.

 

The incident, which followed a downpour, occurred at the ‘White House’, the portion of the Assembly housing both upper and lower legislative chambers.

 

Many lawmakers were stranded for some minutes before the rain subsided. The lobby of the Assembly became impassable while cleaners were immediately mobilised to clear the pool.

 

 


Tuesday’s incident comes despite numerous budgetary allocations, amounting to billions of naira, to renovate the National Assembly complex.

 

One such was the approval of N37 billion by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, which sparked outrage among Nigerians.
