Lagos First Lady, Abimbola Fashola Explains How She & Her Husband Have Managed Their Religious Differences

First Lady of Lagos state, Dame Abimbola Fashola opened up on how she and her husband, Governor Raji Fashola have been able to manage their home despite their religious differences. She’s a christian while he’s a Muslim. She revealed this in a new interview with Channels TV. She said;


“We got married in the Church, the Catholic church, that is who I am, that’s where you will take me from and that was done. But ever since then my husband has practiced his religion and I have practiced mine. There is no trouble whatsoever. My husband has his own part of the house where he prays, I have my own altar there with my crucifix and my rosary and everything and everyone is minding their own business. When its time for family prayer, we pray. I pray mine to the name of Jesus Christ while he prays in Allah’s name & the children understand all that. My children are baptized and they go to church. When he wants them to go to mosque with him they go to the mosque with him.
