A former House of Representatives Speaker, Dimeji Bankole, is set to walk down the aisle for the second time.
The wedding will take place on January 15.
It was learnt that Bankole will be tying the knot with Aisha Shinkafi Saidu, daughter of Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu.
Bankole who got divorced from his first wife in 2017, have been in a sizzling relationship with Aisha, a trained lawyer and graduate of the University of Hull, United Kingdom.
A statement released by the Bankole family disclosed that a quiet introduction between the two families took place to kick off the joining together in line with Islamic and traditional injunctions.
At the introduction ceremony, Sokoto State Governor and 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.
Meanwhile, there are reports that the wedding will be a simple affair due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
