The first lady of Lagos State, Dame Abimbola Fashola in a recent interview with City Magazine went down memory lane on how she met her husband, the outgoing Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola.
Quote
"I met my husband at age 27. That was at my best friend's engagement then. I was serving and making sure everyone was okay and well taken care of, attending to people and all that. And then his father saw me and then said "I have a son and I will like you to meet my son". So I said no problem sir. He said good. My son will soon come in.

When he came, we introduced ourselves. We met. We exchanged our numbers and that was it. We took it off from there. He was cool, he looked cool-headed. He was friendly. He had no airs about him. He was a simple fellow. He was already working then as a lawyer.

He was at Sofunde, Belgore & Co. He clicked with my sisters too. He was always going to parties with them. He was bubbling with them. I didn't use to go to parties with them. Since my sisters accepted him, I had no choice but to accept him."

Even at 27 years ago, there was no GSM. GSM came into naija in 2001 or thereabout. So which network was she talking about in not Nitel or Turaya?
