Remi Enough For Me, Tinubu Dispels Rumours Of New Wife
By Our Correspondent
The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu had refuted reports of taking a new wife.
The presidential hopeful in a statement by his media aide, Tunde Rahman in Abuja on Sunday, said he has continued to enjoy a blissful marriage with his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu.
The statement reads: “We have seen fake news that has gone viral on social media purporting that the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asíwájú Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is set to take a new wife.
“This is what it is: fake and groundless news.
“HE Asíwájú is enjoying his marriage to his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, which is blessed with excellent children. He is not ready to take an additional wife, whether a Christian or a Muslim.”
The presidential flag bearer noted the intention of those peddling rumours of takinga new Muslim wife was not only to cause discord within his peaceful family but to also create disaffection within the Christian community.
The statement added: “Their intention has failed. It will not cut a die anywhere. We enjoin our people to completely disregard the unfounded news.
“Tinubu is at present focused on his campaign to emerge the president of this country come February 25, 2023, to rekindle the hope of our people in a better, stronger, more secure and prosperous Nigeria.
“Senator Oluremi Tinubu is also busy traversing the length and breadth of the country canvassing support for her husband.
“They will not be distracted by this baseless news.”
Recall, a video clip went viral a few days ago alleging that Tinubu, was planning to take a second wife.
The 45 seconds viral clip, which was ostensibly a digital invitation to the Nikah of the couple trended on social media including the WhatsApp platform.
In Islam, Nikah is a contract where both the groom and bride are to consent to the marriage of their own free will.
In the video, the announcer, a female voice over, claimed Tinubu was planning to marry a young bride resident in Katsina, Khadija Abubakar Bawa Wagini.
She claimed “The solemnization of the Nikah would take place on February 18, 2023 at Katsina Central Mosque. Bride representative, Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari; groom representative, Kano State Governor, Senator Abdullahi Ganduje; Chief Host, Dahiru Mangal (a billionaire businessman and ally of the APC).
“This is an invitation card for those who did not receive it.”
