Nigeria's Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole got remarried on Friday, May 15, 2015, and the affair set many tongues wagging.

The governor tied the knot with beautiful Cape Verdean, Iara Fortes 5 years after the death of first wife, Clara.

Oshimhole’s wedding was the major topic on social media for three days and here are five reasons why:

  1. Short Notice: News of the governor’s impending nuptials came out on Wednesday, May 13, barely 48 hours to the wedding.

  2. Age Difference: The governor is 63 and his beautiful bride is said to be 36-years-old.

  3. Child's Absence: Oshiomhole’s daughter, Winifred, didn’t attend the wedding citing a busy schedule.

  4. Haram Handshake: President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari shook the new Mrs Oshiomhole’s hand and apparently this is “haram” or wrong.

  5. Frowning Festival: There was a noticeable shortage of smiles at the Oshiomhole wedding. Iara’s dentition was only sighted a few times and the governor’s, not at all.
