Kaduna First Lady, Hadiza el-Rufai has throw rare light on the romantic flair of her husband revealing his favourite lines in pre-wedding love notes from a besotted Mallam Nasir El-Rufai.
The poetically gifted First Lady in a post on twitter with throwback pictures of the couple apparently from their wedding night also drew comments from followers on Mallam Nasir’s favourite love lines.
Hadiza, had taken to Twitter to share two pictures, with the caption “how it started” and “the way it ended.”
One of the pictures depicted someone writing a letter, while the second one showed herself with el-Rufai, in a social event.
The first lady also hinted how her husband wooed her by writing love letters to her, when they started their relationship.
Reminiscing about one of the love lines of el-Rufai that captured her attention, she tweeted on what was perhaps the governor’s favourite love line to her quoting him thus: “I’m picking up my golden pen from the basket of love to write these few words of mine.”
The couple got married in 1985.
Many Twitter users reacted to the tweet with some asking the first lady to teach them some love lines that can also inspire their lovers.
Others told her about their admiration of her lovely union with el-Rufai.
