The Two Women In Life Of Sokoto Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal

The hopes of friends and political associates of Sokoto Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, to enjoy a lavish wedding ceremony for his new wife, Maryam Mairo-Mustapha, were dashed Friday after the couple's families opted for a private ceremony to usher the bridegroom into her new home.
Tambuwal took Mairo-Mustapha as a second wife penultimate Friday in Kano,
A very confused associate, who made the trip to Kano from Yola, was left bemused after he was informed that the modest ceremony would involve only ladies and close family members. "This is not how Governors wed," the associate, a former member of the House of Representatives, said.

"Even though I know situation is a bit hard in the country, I expected a ceremony befitting his status as Governor. Even though we came from far for this, we will respect his wish and pray for a matrimonial bliss for his new family."
Reporters in Kano had a hectic time trying to identify the venue of the wedding. When they eventually did, it was at a family home of the Mustaphas in Nasarawa area of the city.
