Marrying my American wife is the best thing to happen to me – Isa Suleiman Panshekara
Story from Saleh INUWA, Kano
24-year-old Isa Suleiman Panshekara has described his marriage to a 48-year-old American woman, Janine Sanchez, as the best thing that has ever happened in his life.
Isa Suleiman, who was born in Kano, met Janine Sanchez via Instagram and fell in love with her and later they started a discussion about marriage. In spite of the age difference, coupled with the fact that she has a son who is Suleiman’s age, they agreed to meet in Kano and prepare how their future will be and in 2019, she took a flight to Kano to meet with her new internet lover.
When she came to Kano, former Senator Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, stood in as her guardian but at the time COVID-19 virus was at its peak, and even if they had gotten married, the American government would not have issued Isa Suleiman a visa.
Janine, therefore, flew back to America and returned to Nigeria later, when she was properly introduced to Suleiman’s parents and they had a court marriage, promising that he will remain as a Muslim and she, in turn, will remain as a Christian.
After their court marriage, Isa and his wife left for the US and since then, have been staying at Janine’s house with her son without crisis.
Suleiman, last week, wrote when his wife clocked 48 years saying: “Anytime I see you and remember how we met through Instagram, my love for you increases by the minute. I love u so passionately that you have become my jewel and the woman I will live to love forever”.
Recently, Isa Suleiman posted his picture with his 48-year-old wife and her son, when they travelled to Germany, for a short holiday. Janine Sanchez sponsored the trip, hotel and accommodation. In fact, she and her husband appeared in a Hausa attire, to show the world that they are enjoying their marriage.
