verifies from Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity.

Adesina described the claim as ‘a deceptive manoeuvre’ by those who reportedly fabricated it.

Adesina confirmed that there was no marriage taking place at the Presidential Villa as stated in the viral claim.

Another presidency source who asked not to be named told the newspaper that there was no wedding taking place at the Presidential Villa neither was the president preparing for any wedding.

The source said the claim is entirely false. Sadiya Umar Farouq currently not in Nigeria If it is true, as the purveyor of the claims allege, that the wedding is taking place on October 11, today, one wonders while the supposed bride to be is not in Nigeria for the ceremony.
