President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday observed the weekly two raka’at jumaat prayer at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Among those that joined him at the jumaat prayer were presidential aides, ministers and former governor of Zamfara Staate Abdulaziz Yari and Senator Kabir Gaya.
The jumaat prayer, however, witnessed unprecedented number of faithful who seemed to have stormed the Villa mosque to confirm the veracity or otherwise of social media reports that President Buhari would wed the Minister of Humanitarian and Disaster Management, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq, as a second wife.
That, however, did not happen at the Presidential Villa on Friday.
The Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, has dispelled the rumour that went viral on the social media.
According to him, the rumour was false.
He stressed that it was a deceptive manoeuvre by those who fabricated it.
Noting that the news was far from the truth, he said that no such marriage would take place at the Presidential Villa.
