Sadiya Farouq Breaks Silence On ‘wedding Plan’ With President Buhari

A Twitter account impersonating Sadiya Umar Farouq, minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, has made comments on the wild rumour of a wedding to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The fake Twitter handle, @Sadiya_Farouq_, with 462 followers at the time of this report, is different from the account of the minister, @Sadiya_Farouq, which has 18,900 followers.

The counterfeit account though dispelled the rumor, made cryptic remarks on the false story.

“There have been several speculations in media regarding Marriage between Myself and Baba Buhari. I will like to clarify this that me and Baba Buhari have been old-time friends and Her Excellency Aisha is my good friend and a sister. I will like to maintain this good relationship,” one of the tweets read.

“Dear Nigerians, please Kindly ignore all rumors as this is not true. We’re currently completely focused on making sure we have a better Nigeria. Let’s continue to pray for our dear country Nigeria. God Bless.”
