Well, it’s a wedding photo and its actually Toyin Saraki, her daughter, Oluwatosin and father of the bride, the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki.
Blessed with a trim figure which she utilizes optimally in the style department, she almost passed for the bride at her daughter’s wedding penultimate week in Lagos.
The Founder/President Wellbeing Foundation Africa (WBFA) shares a striking resemblance with her daughter, Olwatosin Halima, the newly-wed. Kemiashefonlovehaven asked Mrs Saraki, a lawyer, how she coped as a young mum, married to a politician and she revealed:
“I hope my children are happy and I pray they are fulfilled. I never “left” my children and I have always put them first no matter what I am doing.
When they were young, I carried them everywhere with me, educating them myself whenever they were out of school. As they got older and started attending boarding schools, I ensured I was present for every exeat and occasion, and to be honest, I have never liked to delegate childcare. Each time I ever tried to delegate childcare I regretted it, so I think with time everyone just accepted that “Mummy will be there” and I thank God that I have a wonderful relationship with my children, they are my friends; there is nothing that we do not discuss openly, honestly and frankly. That is how my parents brought me up and I would probably say it is the universal root of self-confidence, motivation and drive, irrespective of socio-economic status.
For me, being there for my children is non-negotiable.”
