|Hon. Omosede Igbinedion|
|Mr George Tawlon Manneh Opong Weah incoming President of Liberia|
Minds have since gone into overdrive with the thoughts of maybe or maybe not whether the incoming first lady of the Republic of Liberia that former gem blessed West African country where the late leader for life Samuel Doe and the convicted criminal Charles Taylor reigned supreme for several years, would be a Nigerian?
Not only are the thoughts centred on whether the 1st lady would be a Nigerian, but whether it would be that most eligible of bacholorettes and mother of one from Benin in Edo State in the person of Honourable Omosede Igbinedion, the big boned daughter of the Great Esama of Benin, a member of the House of representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and younger sister of the former Governor of the same state in the person of Lucky Igbinedion!
For those who might not have known, the incoming Liberian President, Mr. George Tawlon Manneh Opong Weah, who was an award winning and very celebrated footballer, in fact he was so renowned then, that he became a world’s best then (the only African till date to have gotten the accolades), winning the Ballon D’or and World Footballer of the year in his hey days, where he played for the likes of Monaco, Marseille, PSG, AC Milan, Manchester City and Chelsea amongst several clubs. Mr Weah was a major item with OMOSEDE then.
Both were said to have loved each other wondrously and enjoyed each others company so much then that, why the relationship didn’t end in marriage still baffles everyone. According to those that knew both together they were so in sync, that what should have happened then was for both to have become a Mr & Mrs, but alas that never happened, but they both still remained best of buddies, supporting each other and celebrating each others achievements as they happen.
Thereafter their whirlwind relationship ended then, Omosede went on to marry the Benin Prince-Prince Akenzua in a wedding of the season event, but that celebrated marriage didn’t last more than 2 years. Both husband and wife have since gone their separate ways, though they both have one son between them, who himself was a subject of some form of controversy at his school at the tail end of last year caused by his doting mom.
So now that Mr. WEAH is the incoming President of Liberia and with the way the former Princess Omosede Akenzua now back to her maiden name of Hon. Omosede Igbinedion celebrated and sang to high heavens that awesome achievement, many are thinking whether the love between the 2 unrepentant lovebirds might have been ignited massively again and that maybe it’s no more as platonic a relationship as it had become after they both parted ways and that maybe Omosede might rival the Jamaican wife & mother of the kids of the retired footballer now President to be, to become the new 1st lady of Liberia.
Would that be the case? We await to see how it would all pan out at the end of the day.
