A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has denied speculations about him marrying a fifth wife following his separation from his fourth wife and ex-beauty queen, Precious Chikwemdu.
Over the weekend, the social media were awash with the report that Fani-Kayode is planning to take the fifth wife, a lady who was identified as Halima Yusuf.
Reacting to the rumour, the former minister shared series of pictures of himself with Halima.
In one of the posts, Fani-Kayode said Halima is his dear friend and confidante, noting that the report about a marriage was false.
He wrote, “There have been wild speculations in the social media that I am planning to get married again. This is false.
“Miss Halima Yusuf, who has been cited as my fiancée is simply a dear friend and confidante who I have the utmost respect for and who I hold in high esteem.
“She, together with others, has been a source of immense comfort for me and mine at this time and for this I am eternally grateful to her.
“I appeal to all those peddling the falsehood that we are about to get married to please desist from doing so.”
