The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq, has reportedly married the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar,.
This is coming barely a year after she made the headlines for a rumoured wedding with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Daily Trust reported that the wedding Fatiha held on Friday, September 18, 2020, at the Maitama Juma’a Mosque in Abuja as confirmed by multiple sources.
The publication added that the event was a private affair as one of the sources disclosed that “very few people were invited to attend the wedding Fatiha because (of) the couple.”
“Those close to them didn’t want to publicize the issue”, the source added.
The report added that Abubakar and Farouq have been dating for “a while” as revealed by the source.
“They have been in a relationship for a while and what happened on Friday has put to rest all the speculations about her relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari,” the source told Daily Trust.
It will be recalled, in October 2019, there was a rumour on social media that President Buhari is planning to marry Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq as second wife.
