Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq was the cynosure of all eyes on Wednesday at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja. Colleagues milled around her. They smiled with her; they shook hands with her according to to The Nation online.
As she finished with one group of ministers, she was ambushed by another. And in all the situations, her expressions seemed to be saying: ‘Me, not me o?’ or ‘Don’t mind the fake news merchants.’ As she spoke, gesticulating either with the raise of both hands or wearing of stern look, her colleagues listened with rapt attention as though concurring with her that fake news merchants deserved to be in hell. All these happened at the Executive Chambers before the commencement of the meeting.
Last weekend social media was trending with news of the Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster and Management, Sadiya Umar Farouq getting married to his Boss in Central Mosque, Abuja.
