New governor Mala Buni of Yobe State secretly married a third wife barely 24hours after he was sworn-in.
Blueprint gathered that the governor tied the knot on Thursday with the daughter of his immediate past predecessor, Ibrahim Gaidam.
His new wife’s name is Ummi Adama Gaidam.
Ummi Adama, who takes the position of Governor’s third wife is currently studying in Saudi Arabia.
Already, there are strong indications that the new bride will be made the first lady as a way of strengthening the relationship between the immediate past governor and the incumbent.
The low key marriage was solemnized at Mr Gaidam’s residence at Sabon Fegi area Damaturu, the state capital, in the early hours of Thursday.
An Islamic scholar, Sheik Abubakar Adam who is also close to the two governors (Gaidam and Mai mala), gave the hand of Fatima Ibrahim Gaidam to Mala Buni.
