It is rare to see a Northern Muslim man allow his daughter to marry a Christian man. But a particular Muslim politician from the North has shown that religious differences should not be barrier between two individuals that truly love themselves. And that politician is Senator Bukola Saraki, a former Governor, and the immediate past Senate President of Nigeria.
Senator Bukola has shown that he has a great religious tolerance by allowing his daughter, Tosin to marry a Prince Adeniyi Olukoya who is a Christian.
Many were surprised when the news surfaced. No one taught that a Muslim from the North will easily agree with the decision. But Bukola who love his daughter would not want anything to stop his first daughter from marrying the man she love.
In Nigeria, there is freedom of religion. If many people across all religion and tribes in Nigeria can be tolerant to each other regardless of their individual differences, this country will be great.
