SaharaReporters has confirmed that no biological daughter of Muhammad Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is married to a man from Anambra State or any of the southeast states.
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.
