Former Taraba governor’s daughter releases pre-wedding pictures

Mariya, daughter of former Taraba State Governor, Danbaba Suntai, has released pre-wedding photos with her fiancé, Shehu Abdullahi.

The couple is set to tie the knot on December 11 in Abuja.

Along with cuddly pictures of her and the groom, the bride-to-be wrote about how she fell in love with her husband-to-be.

“What better way to start this morning than with a little story lol. When @attijany told me he loves me, I asked him why in the hopes of outsmarting him. If he had said cos of the way I behave or look or dress or cos of how smart I am or something materialistic I would have had the perfect response for him. I would have said that’s just infatuation, or it’s not reason enough to spend the rest of your life with someone .But that’s not what he said to me! He said, and I quote “I don’t have any specific reason for loving you, I just love you for the sake of God” honestly I was dumb struck by that statement. I was like wow that’s kinda amazing lol. It however took me about a month after before I also said I Love him even though right then and right there, that was when I fell for him hehe,” she wrote.

Suntai was elected as executive governor on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) platform in April 2007. He was re-elected in 2011 but had his second term cut short when a plane he piloted crash on October 25, 2012.
