Nigerian President allegedly set to marry With Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Sadia Umar Farouq

Reports coming in has it that the President of Nigeria, Muhammed Buhari is allegedly set to marry Nigeria’s Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Sadia Umar Farouq.

According to the alleged report, the marriage ceremony is set to be held behind closed doors on Friday, October 11, 2019.

“According to PointBlankNews, sources in Aso Rock reveal that President Buhari is getting married in a private ceremony to Sadia Umar Farouq, the current Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management on Friday.

This might just have confirmed the speculations, especially after concerns were raised by Nigerians over the continued absence of First Lady Aisha Buhari who has gone totally incommunicado since her trip to the UK.

According to a source who spoke to PointBlankNews, on the condition of anonymity, Ms Farouk is a very close friend of Buhari and the Cabals love her.

She has been the mastermind behind all the delicious meals Buhari and the Cabal members have been eating especially during political gatherings such as rallies and campaigns.

The source also revealed how Buhari enjoys getting massages from Sadia who is known to be skilled in the art of massage, stating this as the reason Aisha Buhari who runs a Cosmetic business, was forced to include massage services recently to regain the heart of her husband.

Aisha Buhari was said to have discovered President Buhari’s relationship with Sadia Farouq and kicked heavily against it. She allegedly made confrontations with her husband and pleaded with him to stop but it has fallen on deaf ears. Even his uncle, Mamma Daura has allegedly told her to accept her faith.

This led to another confrontation with President Buhari during the Hajj in Mecca. But her confrontation was in vain as President Buhari’s mind was already made up to marry a second wife.

According to the PointBlankNews source, the Cabals felt Aisha Buhari could not be trusted, being a native of Adamawa which is not a core Muslim state. Sadia on the other hand is from Zamfara state.

When Buhari won the Presidential Election in 2015, he nominated Sadia for her first Ministerial role but she was not considered because of her lack of relevant experience. Instead, she was given an appointment as Head of the Refugee Commission.

After his victory in 2019, he also nominated Sadia again, she is now the current Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management”.
