Well, it’s a wedding photo and its actually Toyin Saraki, her
daughter, Oluwatosin and father of the bride, the Senate President, Dr
Blessed with a trim figure which she utilizes optimally in the style
department, she almost passed for the bride at her daughter’s wedding
penultimate week in Lagos.
The Founder/President Wellbeing Foundation Africa (WBFA) shares a
striking resemblance with her daughter, Olwatosin Halima, the newly-wed.
Kemiashefonlovehaven asked Mrs Saraki, a lawyer, how she coped as a young mum, married to a politician and she revealed:
“I hope my children are happy and I pray they are fulfilled. I never
“left” my children and I have always put them first no matter what I am
When they were young, I carried them everywhere with me, educating
them myself whenever they were out of school. As they got older and
started attending boarding schools, I ensured I was present for every
exeat and occasion, and to be honest, I have never liked to delegate
childcare. Each time I ever tried to delegate childcare I regretted it,
so I think with time everyone just accepted that “Mummy will be there”
and I thank God that I have a wonderful relationship with my children,
they are my friends; there is nothing that we do not discuss openly,
honestly and frankly. That is how my parents brought me up and I would
probably say it is the universal root of self-confidence, motivation and
drive, irrespective of socio-economic status.
For me, being there for my children is non-negotiable.”
