Former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has just reacted to claims of picking a new wife after the crash of his marriage to ex-beauty queen Precious Chikwendu.
The media has been awashed with viral reports of Mr Fani-Kayode picking a new wife after he shared on Instagram a photo of a woman named Halima Yusuf who he met twice in a space of few days.
Reacting to the claims, the 59-year-old Femi Fani Kayode said Halima was not his fiancée but is only offering him comfort at this time.
“There have been wild speculations in the social media that I am planning to get married again. This is false,” he wrote.
“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.”
Fani-Kayode has been hosting female friends since news of trouble in his marriage to Chikwendu broke.
Last Friday, his friend Elizabeth Akinmuda flew into the country from Glasgow, Scotland to see him.
