The Federal Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development in Nigeria, Alhaji Mohammed Sabo Nanono has taken a teenager as his new wife.

This development has raised eyebrows as people wondered why the minister should go in for a girl who’s young enough to be his granddaughter. The lady in question is just 18 years old and per reports, she is just a secondary school leaver, identified simply as Rakiya.

According to the Daily Nigerian, the minister tied the knot with the young lady at a secret wedding held on April 3, in Jere Town, Kaduna State.

The report quoted a source that the minister’s family had kicked against the wedding, however, the minister insisted on marrying the girl despite the 50 years age gap showing how in love he is with the lady.

“The minister only assigned three people and warned them against disclosing the details of the marriage to people. The minister is madly in love. He appeared unstoppable.”
