Sadia Umar Farouq finally has her shot at the limelight. But unlike the random celebrity diva who covets and jostles for her 15 minutes on the slippery slope of acclaim, Sadiya’s renown is for the long haul. Suddenly, she has become everybody’s darling. Until now, she was relatively unknown to all the people seeking to befriend her right now. 

Interestingly, however, the media handlers of President Muhammadu Buhari might have refuted the wedding rumour that trailed the Number One Citizen and the current Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management, Sadia Umar Farouq; the rumour had already assumed a life of its own as many only believe that the denial was just a damage control. In fact, a huge number of people believe the widely rumoured presidential wedding was called off as a face-saving measure after it trended for about a week and received negative reviews. From hash-tags like #PresidentWedding to #Busa2019 #PalaceWedding, Sadia had her images and edited videos splashed on numerous web pages and micro-blogs all over.

By the time the dust had settled, Sadia Umar Farouq has become a household name and the newest attraction to the high and mighty. Her compatriots in the federal cabinet, governors and patrons of the government have now found in her a rallying point and conduit of some sort for favours. Her rating has since skyrocketed; more especially that she is in the good books of the very powerful Mammam Daura, whom has been rumoured to be the unseen match-maker of the botched union.

Nothing showcases her newest status like her taking charge of the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIP), which translates that the Minister will henceforth head all assignments regarding Tradermoni, N-power, Market moni and other poverty alleviation programmes. President Buhari had announced in his Independence speech on October 1st of the intended plan to take Social Investment Programmes (SIP) to the “Next Level”, hence the need to create an independent Ministry to handle all its tasks and assignments.

What many don’t know is that Sadia has been a long-time political ally of President Buhari from his days as presidential candidate and leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), when Sadia was the National Treasurer of the party, a role she carried to the All Progressives Congress in 2013 after four parties merged to form the party. In 2016, Sadiya got an appointment at the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) as the Honourable Federal Commissioner.

While a lot of social media users spewed narratives that seemingly attempted to lend credence to the wedding rumour, it was fun galore for other users who threw in memes and pictures to make fun of the whole rumour. Some persons even trooped to the Aso Rock mosque on Friday, October 11 to witness the rumoured wedding.

However, officially, there was no wedding and things remain what they used to be: Hajia Aisha Buhari remains the only wife of the President, and in fact, has now embraced the title of the First Lady, which she had once rejected.
