Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has received Natasha Mariana, his newly wedded wife, at the government house.
Among those on ground to welcome Mariana were members of the state e executive council and Amina Mohammed, former minister of environment and current deputy secretary-general of the United Nations (UN).
In July, TheCable Lifestyle had reported how the governor married Mariana, who is of Lebanese descent, in a spectacular ceremony held at the Syrian mosque in Ikoyi, Lagos.
The wedding ceremony had attracted a plethora of political figures and bigwigs within and across the confines of the country’s upper echelon of power. Others were academicians, clerics, family and friends of the state executive.
Mohammed, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was declared winner of the Bauchi state governorship election in March 2019.
The 60-year-old former senator defeated Mohammed Abubakar, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and incumbent governor.
Mariana becomes the second wife of the governor, who is already married with children.
