A video being circulated as the pre-wedding party of Sadiya Umar Farouq, minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, was recorded on September 14 when her family and friends held a party to celebrate her appointment.
Farouq was commissioned as the head of the new ministry on August 21.
She had tweeted about the event on September 15, according to a fact check by TheCable.
”Yesterday, I attended a walimah organised by my family and friends to congratulate me on my appointment as a honourable minister by President Muhammadu Buhari,” she tweeted.

There has been a wild rumour of the minister supposedly getting married to Buhari on Friday.
But she is currently in New York where she is promoting a UN campaign against poverty.
