Yesterday, the entire country was in uproar in response to rumours that the Nigerian President, Mohammadu Buhari; was set to marry Sadiya Umar Farouq today.
Nigerians took to twitter to express their varying opinions on the alleged wedding issue. While some expressed their distaste, some others made a lot of jokes. See here.
However, contrary to viral social media reports, #thewedding is just a false rumour; as President Buhari and Sadiya will not be tying the knot today. Not now, not ever.
The Special Adviser on media and publicity to President Buhari, Femi Adesina; debunked rumours of #thewedding in an interview with tribune.
Moreover, the alleged bride Sadiya Umar Farouq is presently out of the country; at the 70th session of the Executive Committee of the High Commissioner’s programme going on in Geneva.
