Adebola Daniel, the UK based ex-Ogun State Governor’s son, has proposed to his girlfriend.
Gbenga debuted his girlfriend, known as Reni, back in August last year at his sister, Kehinde’s wedding to RED ceo, Adebola William.
The proposal comes three years after his last proposal to now ex-fiancée, Natasha Morrison.
The ex-Ogun state Governor’s son paid tribute to his now fiance, “You are joy, you are happiness, you are peace of mind, you are love personified, you are my dream, you are home.”
“The best love stories are the ones that never end and ours has just begun. It’s ♾ and beyond.”
Who is Debola Daniel?
Debola is the youngest of four children by ex-Ogun State governor, Gbenga Daniel and Yeye Olufunke Daniel. His siblings are Olurotimi and, twins Taiwo and Kehinde.
He has being confined to a wheelchair since aged five after being diagnosed with a rare condition – paraplegia. The Mechanical Engineering graduate from UCL once gave an insight into his condition;
“I was born into a very comfortable home, with both amazing parents and without a disability. However, when I turned 5, I was diagnosed with paraplegia- a rare condition with no medical clarity.
I became confined to a wheelchair. Growing up in Nigeria, I unconsciously associated disability to poverty and crime due to amputated beggars on the streets mostly as a result of Sharia Law practiced in the North.
This was the general opinion of most Nigerians in my social circle as a child. Having myself become physically challenged, I was exposed to the stigma and assumptions that came with being ‘disabled’.
All of a sudden, I was looked at with pity, with judgement and sometimes with resentment by my fellow countrymen. As I became an adult, I began to realise that the onus was on me to make something of myself and create my life and future the way I envision it. My future was, and would always be in my own hands.”
