Elected as speaker at 37, he is regarded as the youngest speaker the House has produced.

Bankole was a 2019 Ogun State gubernatorial election candidate under the platform of the Action Democratic Party (ADP).

Both families had reportedly held an introduction ceremony where Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal and Bankole’s successor as speaker of the House led the groom’s people to the bride’s family home to seek her hand in marriage.

It had kicked off the union of the couple in line with Islamic and traditional injunctions ahead of Friday’s event.
