Ex-Speaker Bankole Weds Kebbi Gov’s Daughter Friday

Former Speaker, House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, will on Friday, marry Miss Aisha Mohammed Saidu, the daughter of Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu.

Our correspondent gathered that Bankole, who was the governorship candidate of Action Democratic Party in Ogun State had divorced his first wife in 2017.

Barely four years after, the former Speaker has almost perfected plans to tie the nuptial knot with Miss Aisha Mohammed Saidu, on Friday, in Abuja.

It was further gathered that the bride is a graduate of the University of Hull in the United Kingdom and a lawyer.

A family source told our correspondent that Friday’s solemnisation ceremony will climax the courtship and earlier introduction ceremony between Bankole and Aisha.


He said Sokoto State Governor who is Bankole’s successor as Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal led the groom’s family to the bride’s family home to seek her hand in marriage during an introduction ceremony.

An invitation card obtained by our correspondent on Tuesday in Abeokuta showed that the ceremony will hold between Thursday and Friday in Abuja.

The family, however, mandated guests attending the wedding to wear a face mask in compliance with COVID-19 safety measures.
