The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Sabo Nanono, has married an 18-year-old school leaver in a secret wedding.
Nanono, 74, reportedly tied the knot with the lady in a secret wedding attended by only three representatives of the septuagenarian groom on Saturday, in Jere town of Kaduna State.
According to a family source who preferred anonymity, “The minister only assigned three people and warned them against disclosing the details of the marriage to people”.
It was learnt that the bride, simply identified as Rakiya, has already settled in the minister’s Tamandu Close residence in Kano.
Although the minister’s family had kicked against the wedding, sources said Nanono insisted on marrying the girl despite the over 50 years age gap.
“The minister is madly in love. He appeared unstoppable”, said the source.
