A 46-year-old American woman and mother of two, Jeanine Deslky, is set to tie the nuptial knot with her 23-year-old Kano-born lover, Sulaiman Babayero, whom she met on Instagram.

It was gathered that the lovers had met on Istagram about a year ago, and what started as a normal platonic relationship grew and blossomed into online courtship. The lovers are now set for marriage in a few months following the arrival of the American woman to Nigeria to meet her heartthrob and his family members in Kano.

Delsky, who arrived at the Panshekara residence of her online lover, said she was in Kano not only to see her heartthrob and his parents but also to declare her intention to marry him.

According to her, she decided to trace her heartthrob to Kano because of her “genuine feelings” for him, adding that she had several online dating but found Isa “more real and sincere.”

The mother of two said they had both agreed to get married and fly to the US where they intend to settle, adding that she had seen her dream coming to reality by meeting the love of her life. Sources close to the family of the man hinted that the marriage is expected to be consummated in March this year.

The young Kano lover who has just finished his secondary school, has not only agreed to marry his much older lover and but has also expressed his readiness to follow her to America to settle and start a family. Malama Fatima Sulaiman, the mother of the young man, said she had no objection to her son’s relationship with the woman, adding that she would pray for them to have a happy married life in America.

Meanwhile, the young man’s father said he would report the matter to the State Security Service (SSS) before giving his consent. Mr. Isa, a retired superintendent of police, told an online medium, Kano Focus, at his home in Panshekara yesterday that he had consented to the wedding based on four conditions.

The first condition, he said, is to seek security clearance. “We are trying to do that, we’ll do that, we can’t do without that, we must do that. As a retired security officer, I know what I’m talking about. In fact, I’ll be seeing the SSS by Monday to tell them about the situation.” Kano focus quoted the father. According to the report, the second condition is that his son would be allowed to further his education in the US.

He said the third condition is that Isa would maintain his adherence to the Islamic religion. “I want him to further his education and maintain his religion. No problem, maybe she may become a Muslim too,” he said. The retired police officer added that his final condition is that the bride-to-be must produce a written document of consent from her parents or relations as Muslims are not allowed to marry a woman on her own.

The woman, whose real name is Janine Sanchez, is reported to be set to depart Nigeria in a week’s time and return in March for the wedding.

Kano Politics: The Prince, Commander, and the Comrade. Are they really untouchables?

Published

on

By Adamu Aminu, Kano

Even during the Roman Empire, gladiators were given outstanding priority by the Kings of those days, based on their bravery, courage in battlefields.

And also, perseverance, undivided loyalty and taking daring task during difficult times of fighting for continuous survival on the monarchical throne, were among the yardstick to promote any warrior to the much deserving position as a reward to acknowledge his bravery.

What had happened in those days is seemingly synchronic with what is presently transpiring in today’s Nigerian politics, particularly in Kano, my exalted state, which is not an exception in this regard.

The notion which strongly affirmed that ‘Only the daring deserved the jug, full of sweet-marmalade in the time of victory’.

It was seen by many political pundits, that the daring credibility and allegiance catapulted the trio to become front-bencher in the Khadimul Islam, kitchen cabinet, such as;Prince, Emir’s grandson.

  1. Prince, The Emir’s Son
  2. The Comrade
  3. The Commander.

That might even be the rationale for people branding them as prolific in terms of popularity and influences.

But the questions were already put by some analysts, meant to corroborate the reportedly said impression, as follows;

  • Why do such threesome command much attention in this regime?
  • was it for their hustle during 2019 polls, that led to his triumph?
  • Or was it due to their unflinching allegiance to the governors through thick and thin of his political journey?
  • Why did they deserve to be seeing and call by many, as untouchables and indispensable in the present dominion of Khadimul Islam?

It is obviously known that every one good turn deserves another, and nothing happens spontaneously on a silver platter, without any cause or efforts.

But based on superficial perspectives, many including myself thought that these trios are Khadimul Islam right-hand’s men, who in the past took the bull by the horns, for the present state government of scaling through.

Firstly, let’s take the prince – who is the current party chairman, famously known for his fire-brand, pomposity and often wearing sternly-face to justify his bonafide royal background.

A one-time state commissioner of environment, who is lucky to have bumper to bumper proximity with his excellency, the ‘ Khadimul Islam.

A man whose everyone within the party is trying to avoid loggerheads with him in as much as you need ‘ Khadimul Islam ‘ to back you in your political aspiration within the party, an instance where the only ex-federal house member of Kiru/Bebeji, Hon. Kofa would give full testimony of this man strong influence in the party.

The Prince, presumably said, his contributing factors help the ‘Khadimul Islam ‘ forced the leader of Kano red-cap ideology movement into impromptu retirement from politics.

Secondly, the commander, fondly called ‘ Yaki sai da Kwamanda ‘ a young, light, -complexion politician who is believed to have built a solid base of influence in Khadimul Islam government.

The man raised not only with a silver spoon but with a political spoon in view of the key positions holding at his tender age.

The man whose courage during 2019 gubernatorial polls had his name dominated newspapers headline – also had his half-bared physique went viral all over, all in all, out-war to salvage his party from political nose-diving.

Thirdly, Mr Comrade, the present state Information commissioner. The flamboyant, comrade with dandyish disposition since from youthful heyday.

The man among the three formidable, who was certain of being among the list present state executive members.

A man who has been with ‘ Khadimul Islam ‘ for quite some decades, whose allegiance to him is undisputed. The comrade, who had in the last year run from pillar to post, tried to protect his master’s dignity originated from Daily Nigerian posted video scandal.

The Comrade who is said to be always on alert, keeping sleeves rolled up, walking tip-toed, staying wary in anticipation of any issue that may give his long-time master a sleepless night.

As the proverbial phrase goes on saying “One good turn deserves another” this might be the reason, why the threesome political companions turn out to be Indispensable and untouchables within the Ganduje’s led government.
