FIRST Lady Aisha Buhari on Sunday said it was not her duty to confirm or deny the rumour that her husband President Muhammadu Buhari wanted a second wife.
She told BBC Hausa that the responsibility to confirm or deny the rumour was that of those involved in the matter.
She said: “He (Buhari) is the person rumoured to be planning a marriage, not Aisha Buhari. They (those concerned) are supposed to come out and clear the air.”
The first lady denied a rumour that she left her husband because she did not agree with his plan take a second wife.
She called for urgent action against the menace of fake news.
The social media was abuzz last Thursday with news that President Buhari was to get married to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq.
