Muhammadu Buhari's family
Rumors have been circulating on the Internet
that one of Mr. Buhari’s daughters is married to
a man who hails from Anambra State, and had
converted to Christianity. But two close
members of the presidential candidate’s family
told a correspondent of SaharaReporters that
the rumors are false.
“Buhari has never claimed that any of his
daughters was married to an Anambra man,”
one of the two family sources said. The source
added, however, that Mr. Buhari, a former
military head of state, had raised or helped raise
numerous children from members of his
extended family. He said that some of those Mr.
Buhari helped to raise had grown up and taken
spouses from different parts of Nigeria.
