#CoupleGoals – Edo State First Lady Iara Oshiomhole & Gov. Adams are Always Side by Side

 on

They tied the knot in May 2015 and ever since then, Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole and his beautiful Cape Verdian wife Iara have been inseparable.

Perhaps because they are newlyweds while other governors and their wives have been married for decades but we could not help but notice the closeness between Governor Oshiomhole and Iara. At many of the events the couple attends, they are surrounded by fellow politicians and business people rarely with their own spouses in tow. From their presence official engagements to public displays of affection, they are definitely in sync – Click Here for their Wedding Feature!

We remember during their wedding thanksgiving, the Governor had this to say about his wife. Erm…Gov, TMI!

Iara – Chez Imagery

I can boldly tell all of you that I was a very principled man during my first marriage. I didn’t succumb to the worldly pleasures of this lustful environment, even though I had lots of opportunities. And it was this principled sobriety that made me fish for a virgin wife. I can boldly say to you all that I was the first man to know her and initiated her into the worldly ways.

He also said this

She is very humble, she appreciates the nature of my job and life that I return home late, some times 3am. She understands my weaknesses, she is more or less the mother of the house, the one that has accepted to be the mother of my children.

I am happy that all my children are at home with her and accept her as their mother even though she is not old enough to be their mother. She has accepted to fill that gap.

So lovely to see him appreciating his wife!

Check on it.

    One thing is for sure I am not tapping into this not even when I find myself 40 and single.
    To the couple, I wish you all the best oooo. Papa Oshiomole, May you live long to enjoy the fruits of your (labor) labour.

    Side note, don’t come for me if I did not send for you biko!

    • I no send

      Not at all. If I am, I no go kill myself just as I hope that a widow at 40 would not kill herself.

      Omg! Its too early to be cracked up.. Ur first line tho u are not tapping into this smh. She’s too sexy & elegant. She’s to be credited for that @ Baba Osho haba TMI abeg & hmmm let me reserve my comment about the first wife ( he was a principled man) oh ooo I wouldn’t spill any tea. May her Soul continue to rest in peace.. Why does she remind me of Princess Diana? I don’t know! Maybe not d looks but work ethics I don’t know she..

      I agree. Not everything is couple or relationship goals. I don’t tap into just anything. However, I like how this lady is not just a pretty face, she’s involved and seems interested in working.
      Gold digging or not, this man chose her and he seems highly impressed with his choice. And doesn’t mind sharing his money with her. And some young women like older men, they don’t mind it at all. And it’s not just all about money.

    What’s wrong with this biko. A man that loves you and is capable of caring for you. look at shade Okoya. The marriage is still standing despite bad belle people. God please send the young Prince to my Cinderella. Amen

    What exactly is this #couplegoals thing sef and how does it apply to this couple? This is not a couple goal for me..lol….she’s a beautiful woman but no, just no…

    Hmmmm! So many events within this short while . When I first heard about their marriage, I wondered how it could work. They look good together though. She dresses responsibly.

    I came for the comments and I was sorely disappointed!! WTH? You all remembered the second coming and decided not to be MEAN????? So not fair!!!!
    So only foreign women are virgins???? He didn’t search well in Nigeria that’s for sure. He vowed that he didn’t sleep around in his first marriage, can he swear not to have enriched himself greatlywhist in office???
    Couple goals? Not sure exactly it would apply to your freshly minted born again commentators ??????.
    The world needs the meanies from time to time …

    It seems oshiomole has forgotten hes the governor. Hes nore intrested in pleasing his non virgin wife. All he does is gallivanting around embrassing himself. Has he paid the salaries. Half of the million dollar loan he borrowed is going to be squandered on her. Rubbish.

    How come no one talked about the fact that he said he was the very first to get in between her legs. Too much information, I thought he should have kept that info to himself tho …
    “I can boldly say to you all that I was the first man to know her and initiated her into the worldly ways”.
    Didn’t think that would get past BNers, 🙂 Osho baba, well done o! and congrats on that achievement.

      But your comment though, at his age, there is no privacy to any relationship/wedding sef. TMI

    • BEEBEE

      September 15, 2015 at 3:08 pm

      I did not comment coz i did not believe. That statement was made at their wedding SO HE KNEW HER BEFORE THE WEDDING. My question is if she had been keeping it for over 30 years, why did she give it up before their wedding.

      I believe he just said it TO HELP HER SAFE FACE AND TO BUY SOME RESPECT FOR HER CHOICE.

    No biggie…Most rich older men do this e.g Donald Trump but ..just admit i married a pretty younger Trophy wife…
    All you now do is shamelessly attend every function including the opening of the proverbial Fridge just to show your youngie wife u still gat it.
    And bark all dat about Jona’s ministers…are you any better? ?
    Your State is a mess just papering ove the cracks…get out and do some proper work…

    Whether she was a virgin or not, i don’t see why the man had to bring it up. Likewise whether he cheated on his first wife or not. People who are eager to answer questions they have no business answering are suspect.

    I wish them a HML.

    Does no one else have problems with the fact that he said he “fished” for her? Anyone? Just me?

    “Fish for a virgin wife” that sounds so primitive.

    If you marry this kain fine wife, you no go leave am to gather dust at home. Na real show off tinz. But I have to admit, the idea of both of them as a couple is growing on me sha.

    Couple Goals??? Do better!

    Let’s see how “Couple Goals” you feel when your father marries a young woman old enough to be your sister. *small hiss*

    WELL. MY PERSONAL OPINION (ESP TO SOME CRITICS HERE WHO WILL FIND THEMSELVES IN HIS SHOES IN SOME YEARS TO COME ) IS AN OLDER GROOM CANNOT LEAVE A PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN AT HOME ALL BY HERSELF SO SHE DOESNOT GET BORED AND START CALLING HER FRIENDS WHO WILL RECONNECT HER TO HER OLD BOYFRIENDS OR NEW GIGOLO.

    YOU HEAR ME?!!!!!
