Hajia Aishetu Oshiomhole the mother of Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomole has debunked claims that she wasn’t in support of his marriage to his Cape Verdean wife, Iara Fortes.
Recall that the Governor tied the knot with the beautiful lawyer last Friday after mourning his late wife, Clara who died of cancer, for 5 years.
In an interview with Vanguard Newspapers, Hajia said she advised his son not to get married to Nigerian women because they are materialistic and could destroy the family over his acquisitions.
“I supported him to marry a foreigner so that the relationship between my son and his children will remain cordial. Our Nigerian women will go and destroy the family just because they want property. That was the main reason I supported him to marry a foreigner when he told me about it. So I am happy about it. Besides, the new wife is a very good woman. She behaves like Comrades late wife.
She is very accommodating, understanding and hard working. And you know my son travels a lot as a governor. He needs a woman who understands his work and that is the kind of wife he married. She is just like Clara. Normally, people spend two years or less before they marry again but Comrade decided to wait for five years due to the love he had for his late wife.
And Clara was a good person, very lovely and nice to all of us. So we supported Comrade for taking time to re-marry because we loved Clara. Comrade and the former wife lived very happily, there was no quarrel, nothing at all and that was why he mourned for five years. I am happy that he brought a wife that will bring him and the children together”.
