This year seems to be the year children of most Nigerian politicians will walk down the aisle, as the wedding bells are already ringing in the family of former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel. Gbenga Daniel’s son, Debola, reportedly proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Tash and she said YES!!
Taking to Instagram to share news of their engagement, Debola, disclosed that he will be walking down the aisle soon with his best friend and confidant, as he also thanked his family and friends for helping him plan the engagement.
Here’s what he wrote;
So last night I asked my best friend and my closest confidant to spend the rest of her life with me and she said YES!

Debola, the former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel’s son, who recently bagged his masters in mechanical engineering from the University College London and also a motivational speaker, had before now talked about how he got confined to a wheel chair at the age of 5.
“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 practised 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
