    Congrats to the couple o beht how many children does GEJ have bikonu? I thought they had two and now I find that he has 2nd wife and that one has two and so on and so forth. Can someone pls explain the true nature of our first family? BN I didn’t insult anyone o just asking queshion..if you like no post my comment

  • Crown March 28, 2014 at 2:59 pm

    Now that is a great story. Don’t care one way or another about the Jonathans but to adopt a child from her early age even though not formally, that indeed is worthy of commendation. God bless them for this selfless act.

    • mirabel said March 28, 2014 at 3:52 pm

      mama patience (peace) Has no children of her own… i think they have 3 adopted children and president goodluck has 2 biological kids with another woman ..making em 5

      • Tracy March 30, 2014 at 8:09 am

        And you got this info from where exactly

      • nique March 31, 2014 at 9:03 am

        Amebo who ask you?

  • edy March 28, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    Simplicity is the most sophisticated form of fashion. This is pretty cool and simple. #Class

  • Her March 28, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    My goodness, In the 1st pic she sure looks EXACTLY like Patience Jonathan. However, this guy has hammered. hahaha. Wish them a Happy Married Life.

    • Slim March 28, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      You took the word right out of my mind, not just my mouth

    • Nne April 9, 2014 at 1:54 pm

      Yesss! she looks like her ”mother”

  • Springinmystep March 28, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    I didn’t know they had “chilrens”- adopted or not, in fact I remember reading that they had no kids. I guess they’ve been pretty low-key, perhaps they don’t go to any of the federal universities that were on strike for 6 months. Anyway, I suppose I would be low key too, if those were my parents.

    • Mz Socially Awkward… March 28, 2014 at 3:35 pm

      They have kids. Some biologically related to one parent.

      I find it sadly amusing that he’s been the President of Nigeria for how many years now( (?) and yet, somehow, we the people have very little information about the exact make up of our “First Family”. Unnecessary secretiveness…

      And she really is quite pretty.

    • anonymous March 28, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      On the contrary, all members of the president’s family attend Federal Government universities. Faith is a Lawyer fully trained in Nigeria.

  • Chris March 28, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    This is so beautiful.I saw the post on some other sites and was curious about her wish them a happy married life.

  • Warri Babe March 28, 2014 at 3:22 pm

    She’s pretty and bears a slight resemblance to mama Peace… I guess they should be related.

  • Mide March 28, 2014 at 3:22 pm

    They look alike already, their eyes.Wishing them peace and happiness, God continue to bless the Jonathans!

  • chidinma March 28, 2014 at 3:22 pm


  • Sharon March 28, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    It’s only in Naija that you must explain if a child is biological or adopted,sigh

    • Dee March 29, 2014 at 2:32 am

      Abeg it’s not only in Nigeria. Happens everywhere. People ask questions. Natural human curiosity.

    • humm March 30, 2014 at 12:50 am


    • Joie April 3, 2014 at 4:02 pm

      I taya for 9jerians oh! Adopted, biological, whatever if you can get over yourself and love a child as your own placing whatever be the case he is your child.

  • Ada March 28, 2014 at 3:32 pm

  • http://www.thelmathinks.blogspot.com/ March 28, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    • Blessed March 28, 2014 at 8:48 pm

  • SmashingM March 28, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    Lovely couple. I wish them a happy married life.

  • true_talker March 28, 2014 at 4:48 pm

    What beautiful eyes she and her hubby to be have…abi na photoshop? God bless their union and very commendable of the Jonathans to adopt. Something that needs to be pushed in the nigerian culture…Madama Patience should talk more about it…in plain and clean english sha o..

  • lahips March 28, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    Springinmystep – she attended University of Calabar, studied Medicine, I have friends here who know her. though I do not know anything about her personally.

  • me March 28, 2014 at 4:57 pm

  • Modella March 28, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Years ago,she has no idea her Dad will be the president..Imagine if the Biological parent would have reject the offer…

  • Agidi_jollof March 28, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    I’m friends with another adopted daughter. Also a lawyer. One thing I like about the Jonathans is how low key they are. I served with Eddy and she’s very down to earth, unassuming. Unless she tells you she’s related to the first family you won’t even know.
    I wish this beautiful couple a HML

  • Fade March 28, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    These photos are so lovely

  • Berry Dakara March 28, 2014 at 6:44 pm

    Congratulations to them!

    I won’t lie sha, my first thought was “Please don’t be getting married in Lagos, I can’t deal with more traffic.”

  • Fashion guru March 28, 2014 at 7:24 pm

    Congrats to the couple. But the president and his wife have always given us the picture of a family of four (two kids). Now we know he has an adopted daughter, maybe adopted kids. Nigeria I hail thee!

    • Maya April 28, 2014 at 2:58 pm

      Somewhere in Nigeria, other guys are searching earnestly for other adopted daughters of President Jonathan, cousins and nieces are not left out…lol
