Fatima Ganduje is the pretty daughter of Kano State Governor and she’s married to Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi’s only son, Idris. She got married few weeks and ago and to say she is enjoying every bit of it is like stating the obvious.
Perhaps we should tell you few things you don’t know about the only daughter in-law of the Ajimobis. Fatima is 24years old. She clocked 24 last February and she is a first class graduate of the American University of Nigeria (AUN), Yola where she studied International and Comparative politics. She once led a Nigerian Delegation to United Nations.
For a youth leadership summit. She also runs a Nongovernmental organisation “Lets talk Humanity`( LTH). It is a nongovernmental association that does everything to make sure women are catered for empowered and protected in Africa. Her Lets Talk Humanity was born in Maduguri and it became active even before it was launched in 2015.
Penultimate Thursday 6th of April, the beautiful brain behind `LHT` Fatima looked stunning in lilac lace gown as she walked in with her darling husband, Idris Ajimobi at Mauve 21 Events centre on Ring road for the Murainos and the Adele`s wedding. She looked charming as her darling husband couldn’t take her eyes off her for seconds. Of course, Fatima loves dancing, she did a few steps before she cuddled up with her husband and her sister in-law.
Fatima looked prettier on Sunday 8th of April, 2018 when she came for the Nikkai. It was at the Nikkai that we saw that all the Ajimobi sisters love Fatimo without reservations. She rocked the gold Aso-Ebi the Adeles picked and she took pictures with her Mother-in-law, Mrs Florence Ajumobi who is the mother of the day.
