The rumoured wedding between President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, said to take place today, has drawn the comment of the President’s spokesman, Femi Adesina.
“How will anyone expect that the President will be getting married and it will be a secret affair?
“Nigerians like to gist and play banters, as it is another way of relaxation for many, and they have seen the president as a personality that suits their side talks. It is bad, but that is what happens,” Adesina told Tribune.
Rumour of the wedding was sparked by the first lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari’s absence from the country in the last two months with some holding the view that the first couple’s marriage is in crisis.
Peddlers of the rumour are equally quick to point at rocky relationship between Mrs. Buhari and the said cabal.
However, amid her wedding claim, Sadiya is currently in New York promoting a UN campaign against poverty.
