The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu has debunked widespread insinuation that he is intent on taking up a muslim wife.
This revelation was contained in a press release by the Media Aide to the APC presidential candidate, Tunde Rahman made available to journalists, on Sunday, February 12.
This followed report that some powerful forces better referred to as cabals in the Buhari-led administration had proposed a condition that the former governor of Lagos State must marry a muslim woman to get their support ahead of the general elections.
“We have seen a 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: a 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.
“We know the intention of those behind those peddling a new Muslim wife is not only to cause discord within the extremely peaceful family of Asíwájú Tinubu but to also create disaffection within the Christian community.
“Their intention has failed. It will not cut a dice anywhere.
We enjoin our people to completely disregard the unfounded news.
“Asíwájú 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.
“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.”
