When former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, separated from his wife, Precious Chikwendu, there were several reports that the Minister was set to walk down the aisle the fifth time with one Halima Yusuf.
Indeed, another photograph set tongues wagging, with the controversial politician saying the lady in it, Elizabeth Akinmuda, flew down to Nigeria from Glasgow, Scotland just to say hello to him.
But Fani-Kayode has taken to his Instagram page to debunk the reports that he is set to take another wife.
According to him, Yusuf, like many others, had been source of comfort to him in his difficult moments.
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 fiancee, 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.”
