Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) presidential candidate, has called a social media claim that he was planning to marry a new woman “false news” and that he is happy with his marriage to Senator Oluremi, his sole wife.
Stop the Fake News: Asawaj Tinubu is not taking a new wife, his spokesman Tunde Rahman said in a statement released Sunday night in Abuja.
“We have seen fake news that has gone popular on social media claiming that Aswaj Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, is getting a new wife.
“This is what it is: fake and groundless news.
“He Asiwaju 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”, said the statement from Tinubu’s Media Office.
According to the statement, “the intention behind those peddling a new Muslim wife is not only to cause discord within the extremely peaceful family of Asiwaju Tinubu but to also create disaffection within the Christian community.
“Their intention has failed. It will not cut a dice anywhere”.
The statement enjoined Nigerians to completely disregard the unfounded news.
“Asiwaju 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.
