Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted to the story making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari is planning to marry a second wife, in the person of Hajia Sadia Umar Farouq, the current Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management.
Following the continued absence of the current First Lady, Aisha Buhari, who has been out of the country for over two months since her trip to Saudi Arabia early August.
Rumours emerged from the Aso Rock that President Buhari will be getting married to Ms. Farouq who has been a very close friend of his and the cabal for a very long time.
Reacting through series of tweets, Reno Omokri said it could be true that Buhari is taking a second to replace Aisha who has allegedly been fighting off the attempt by the cabal to have the president marry Ms. Farouq.
Omokri, however, noted that the date of the alleged wedding is not confirmed, and went further to mock Buhari saying he (Buhari) may not survive marrying a new wife. He wrote:
“2nd wife? Could that be why she [Aisha] has been in England all this time?
“Apparently, the second wife story is true. What can’t be confirmed is the date of the wedding fatiha.
“This man shouldn’t tempt his Creator. He just recovered from serious ill health and now he wants to add another yarinya! Second Term, Second Wife! Baba o! #SecondTermSecondWife
“Apparently, @THISDAYLIVE broke the story this Sunday, but few noticed. I didn’t know he had stamina like this. And he even gave the new yarinya post! I hope I am invited to the wedding Fatiha. A man who just recovered. Pray we don’t hear stories that touch!
“When he said he was ‘working hard’, we thought it was government work. We did not know it was, let us just say extra curricular activities. Ha! Hard worker! Baba I hail o. Remember what happened to your mentor, Abacha? We don’t want stories that touch.
“Queen Esther wants to take the place of Queen Vashti! We just hope that the incoming wife will not do what PEPT could not do o! We did not know that this was what he meant when he said #NextLevel! We pray this ‘hard work’ will not end in a London clinic!
“@PaulKagame is working hard to make Rwanda GREAT and somebody here is working hard to make Nigeria’s population GREATER. And he will he lying to us that he is ‘working hard’ for us.’. No wonder. The man has been unusually excited these days. Bedroom power!”
Meanwhile, news broke out this morning that Aisha Buhari flew into the country last night after two months away, but was prevented from entering her section of the Presidential Villa by Nigerian soldiers.
A video circulation the social media shows the First Lady visibly saying that over 200 soldiers and 200 policemen are holding her hostage at Aso Rock.
