The low-key wedding took place over the weekend at Mohammed Abacha’s residence in Abuja.

According to a governor’s aide, the gathering was conducted behind closed doors to prevent public attention.

Gumsu, 45, was previously married to Bayero Fadil Mohamadou, a Cameroonian multi-billionaire.

In 2019, the governor married Adama Ibrahim Gaidam, the daughter of his predecessor, just 24 hours after taking the oath of office.

Buni was the APC’s National Secretary when Gaidam showed interest in naming him as his successor.

His marriage to Gumsu, like his marriage to Ummi Adama, the daughter of his predecessor, Ibrahim Gaidam, is said to have been for political reasons.
