A new reason has emerged on why Governor Oshiomole settled for his Liberian wife, Lara Fortes. Apart from her beautiful looks and alluring figure, Lara though not from Nigeria is blessed with good manners. Unlike some ladies who allow fame and wealth to get into their head, Lara is cool-headed and well-behaved. This endearing quality was recently pictured when the first lady of Edo State, Lara Oshiomole almost went on knees when exchanging pleasantries with the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Oshinbajo.
Apart from her humility, Lara is also to be morally clean. Days after marrying his wife in a carnival-like wedding, the Edo State governor had revealed some top secrets about his wife and of which one of them is that he met her a virgin.
Then, he said: “I can boldly say to you all that I was the first man to know her (Lara Fortes) and initiated her into the worldly ways. This is the kind of spirit I want Edo youths to inculcate, instead of messing around and engaging in different shades of adultery and fornication.”
Lara happens to be Oshiomole’s second wife. The governor’s first wife died in 2010 of a cancer disease. But the interesting thing is that Lara is said to be loved by the entire Oshiomole’s family owing to her wonderful behavior.
