At the church service,the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, described his new wife, Iara, as a model in his heart even as he said his new wife is not a replacement for his late wife, Clara whom he said is irreplaceable.
Speaking at a Thanksgiving Mass held at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Auchi today, Oshiomhole debunked reports that his wife is a ‘top model’ saying the speculation might have been generated from her poise and beauty.
He said, “When I read newspaper stories and they say that Comrade has married a ‘top model’ I’m like maybe it’s another person.
“The lady that God has directed to my path and heart to marry is not and was not a model. Of course, she looks beautiful and I understand that is why people assume that this kind of a lady must be a model but of course, she is a model in my heart and we hope and pray that we will be models in the heart of our God and I think that is the most important thing”.
Governor Oshiomhole appealed to the congregation to keep supporting him and his new wife in prayer saying “I ask you to please continue to pray for us. It is not easy. I lost my first wife and it is not possible to replace her. Yes, I have married another but it is not a replacement. You cannot replace a wife especially one you married when you were young and you were anonymous. Nobody knew you from anywhere, you had nothing, no car, no house; now, that you can never replace but I understand that under the Catholic doctrine I am entitled to have another wife which is what I am trying to do.
