Nigeria’s Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, has tied the nuptial knots with Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, in a secret ceremony in Abuja.
The extremely private event, which took place last Friday, was the culmination of a love affair between the two public figures that dates back to more than a year ago.
SaharaReporters reliably gathered that the marriage was delayed till last Friday because of the controversy that followed the rumoured affair between Farouq and Buhari in October 2019 where it was alleged that the President was set to marry her.
The news set the entire media space on fire, leaving many disappointed when the alleged wedding did not hold.
It was reliably gathered that Farouq and Abubakar’s wedding was facilitated by the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari.
The minister,who clocks 46 on November 5, has never been married and has no children.
The Chief of Air Staff, who is from Bauchi State, has 10 children from two wives – one of whom he has since divorced.
Farouq was appointed minister by President Buhari in 2019 while Abubakar, (who is among service chiefs Nigerians have asked the Commander-In-Chief to fire for their poor tackling of insecurity in the country) has been in office since July 2015.
