Dimeji Bankole and new wife, Aisha
Dimeji Bankole, a former speaker of the House of Representatives, on Friday in Abuja tied the knot with Aisha Saidu, daughter of Atiku Bagudu, governor of Kebbi State with two Nigerian singers, Laycon and Timi Dakolo treating guests to lovely music.
The ceremony which held at Harrow Park, Ahmadu Bello Way in Abuja, had in attendance several prominent figures including Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto state.
Tambuwal had earlier led the groom’s family to the bride’s family home to seek her hand in marriage during the introduction ceremony held earlier in the week.
Bagudu’s daughter is said to be a lawyer and graduate of the University of Hull, United Kingdom.
Bankole, who was the speaker of the house between 2007 and 2011, had divorced his first wife in 2017.
