Special Adviser on Media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, has dispelled the viral claim that Buhari is getting a second wife.
Social media reports had claimed that Buhari would get married on Friday to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq.
Adesina stressed that the rumour was a deceptive manoeuvre by those who fabricated the news, noting that the news was far from the truth.
Buhari on Friday observed the weekly two raka’at jumaat prayer at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Among those that joined him at the jumaat prayer were presidential aides, some cabinet ministers and former governor of Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari as well as Senator Kabir Gaya.
The jumaat prayer however witnessed unprecedented number of faithful.
They seemed to have stormed the Villa mosque to confirm the authenticity or otherwise of the social media reports claiming that President Buhari would have wedding fatiha for a second wife.
