CITIZENS COMPASS– THE All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has assured his followers that there is no plan whatsoever to marry a new wife from the northern part of Nigeria.
The media space was awash over the weekend that the presidential candidate is planning to marry AA new wife on February 28, 2023 to make her the first lady in place of Senator Oluremi Tinubu.
However, Tinubu on Monday, February 13, 2023, debunked the rumours claiming that he is set to marry a new Muslim wife ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
He spoke through a statement issued by the APC Presidential Campaign Council, expressing that he is enjoying his marriage to his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, and he is not taking to get married to anyone because of political or religious reasons.
The statement reads, “We have seen fake news that has gone viral on social media purporting that the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Bola 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, who is blessed with excellent children. He is not ready to take an additional wife, whether a Christian or a Muslim.
We know the intention of those peddling a new Muslim wife is not only to cause discord within the extremely peaceful family of Tinubu but to also create disaffection within the Christian community.
“Tinubu is at present focused on his campaign to emerge the president of this country come February 25, 2023 in order to rekindle the hope of our people in a better, stronger, more secure and prosperous Nigeria.”
