I am not married to Buhari's son- INEC acting chairman says

INEC's acting Chairman, Amina Zakari has denied claims that she is married to President Buhari's son. She refuted the claims in an interview with reporters in Abuja recently
"I would say Gen. Buhari did not appoint me as a commissioner; President Jonathan did. Before that, Gen. Obasanjo appointed me as a special assistant and I was posted to FCT where I was secretary for health, agriculture and social development at the same time. At the time President Jonathan came, he was looking for people that had integrity. That was what I was told, and I found myself in the commission and did my best. For somebody to now say Gen. Buhari knew me and gave me the job, obviously he knew I am a hard worker and he is a principled person.

Chris Brown says his new album will be named after his daughter
