Nigeria’s Senate President, Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan has reportedly given over N100m to his new wife, Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid, according to Sahara Reporters.
This comes following their secret wedding in Borno State on Friday.
The low-key marriage was solemnised at the Sheikh Sharif Ibrahim Saleh’s mosque in Maiduguri.
The event was 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.
While Nigerians die in abject poverty, a source close to Zainab told SaharaReporters on Saturday that the Senate President gifted her N100 million a few days after they were introduced to each other.
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.
