Why I Quit My Marriage To Atiku - Wife

Jennifer, a wife of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has confirmed the breakdown of her marriage to the former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

The ex-VP’s wife explained in a statement that she did not request divorce because Atiku married a new wife.

“That His Excellency married a new wife was never the cause of our problem as many have said. His Excellency is a Moslem and I have never questioned him about his wives or intended,” she said.

According to her, some of Atiku’s friends tried to mediate and stop the divorce but their efforts failed.

Jennifer explained that “the core reason for the divorce was disagreement over my continued stay in the United Kingdom” among other “long-standing issues”.

She also claimed that Atiku has requested to collect an asset previously given to her, adding that the property in Dubai is a subject of litigation.

The estranged wife added, “During the initial mediation discussion, Excellency denied that he gifted the house (matrimonial home in Asokoro) even after I showed him the document with the signatures of his aide, his Excellency asked me to give him the deed of gift.

“’When I asked him, where will I and the kids stay when we come to Nigeria?’, he told me that since I am the one that asked for a divorce, I should find a place to stay, and subsequently, I moved out.”

Atiku has yet to make any public statement on the issue as of the time of filing this report.

Also, efforts to get his aides to react to the claims made by Jennifer failed.
Read the full statement:

“For some time now, especially in the last few weeks, there has been a whole lot of rumours and in circulation about the state of my marriage to his Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Waziri Adamawa, GCON. The stories got more vicious as they continued to circulate. I deem it necessary to defend myself against the calculated propaganda to malign my character and position me in a bad light and damage my name. Without resorting to nonsensical talk, I would address the two key issues at hand:

“(1) That I asked for a divorce because His Excellency got married again.

“(2) That I sold his Excellency’s house in Dubai.

“That I asked for a divorce because His Excellency got married again.

“• On June. 26, 2021, I asked His Excellency to grant me a divorce in light of the breakdown of our marriage. And, during that period, I told his Excellency that I remain at his Excellency’s service to continue to assist him in his activities even If I am no longer married to him. Suffice it to say that several friends of his Excellency tried to mediate in this matter. I thank them most graciously and remain grateful for their efforts, Peter Okocha, Senator Ben Obi, Tunde Ayeni, Captain Yahaya, and Senator Ben Bruce.

“• The core reason for the divorce was disagreement over my continued stay in the United Kingdom, to look after my children and several other long-standing issues. I needed to play the role of a mother at this time to the children who have gone through the absence of both father and mother growing up; especially, with the passage of my elder sister who used to look after them. Furthermore, in light of COVID-19 times, choosing to stay with the children was non-negotiable. And, in line with Northern culture, the new wife takes up the baton so I can also focus on giving the kids more care.

“• Despite not informing us officially according to northern/Islamic culture, I knew about his Excellency’s new wife from the time Excellency was dating her and when his Excellency eventually married her. I have graciously invited our new wife to my son’s wedding in Dubai in 2018 without any ill feelings and congratulated his Excellency when our new wife gave birth.

“• I was already aware that His Excellency had gotten married to our new wife but that did not deter me from supporting His Excellency and indeed, we went through a most rigorous electioneering campaign and garnered massive support for his election in 2019.

“• That His Excellency married a new wife was never the cause of our problem as many have said. His Excellency is a Moslem and I have never questioned him about his wives or intended.
“I hope this brings this issue to rest as I did not leave the house because of his new marriage.

“Moving out of the matrimonial Home in Asokoro and Yola

“• The matrimonial home in Asokoro where we reside was gifted to me by him even before we moved into that home from a previous residence. Indeed, His Excellency caused his Private Secretary to process the DEED of assignment documents for the house, which he did and handed me the documents. I then commenced processing the title to the property.

“• During the initial mediation discussion, Excellency denied that he gifted the house even after I showed him the document with the signatures of his aide, his Excellency asked me to give him the deed of gift. “When I asked him, where will I and the kids stay when we come to Nigeria?”, he told me that since I am the one that asked for a divorcey Hu, I should find a place to stay, and subsequently, I moved out.

“• His Excellency further gave orders to have my nephews living with me in the house ejected within an hour of his order and gave orders that I and my family members are not allowed to enter the house. Hence, during my last visit to Nigeria in December 2021, I stayed at a hotel. I have long released these assets to him and hereby reiterate that thee titles are at his disposal to pick up whenever he deems fit.

Dubai Home
“• There has been a lot of speculation on the Dubai home. For a while now, I had purposely stayed away the Dubai until I took custody of that property September 2021 after his Excellency reneged on his word to give the current value of the said property in exchange. When I came to Nigeria, in early September, 2021. I asked to have a private conversation with His Excellency. During that conversation, I informed his Excellency that once I get back to the United Kingdom, I will go to Dubai and take over the house. He subsequently departed for his medical trip to Germany refusing to address any of the issues I privately wanted to conclude with him outside of third parties.

“• I subsequently travelled to Dubai, and took custody of the said property. Once I did that, on 18 September 2021, His Excellency sent me a text and I quote: “I hear you have moved to Dubai to take over the house. I am still in Germany for my medicals. Make sure all my properties including (redacted) are intact so I can collect all my properties. I wish you well’.

“• I responded to him: “ Excellency, I am left with no other option as we need to get on with our lives amicably. I hope your medicals are coming up good. I wish you well too’.

“• On 19th September, 2021 in response to his text that I am not being amicable and I quote ”Good morning, with due respect, Excellency, I told you on Saturday before you left for Germany, that I was going back to UK, take [our son] back for his test, then come to Dubai. I reiterated that day the need for an amicable resolution. I maintain that stance and remain at your service Your Excellency’.

“• Further on Tuesday, 21 September, 2021, I asked His Excellency in another text whether he wanted me to pack up his clothes and give them to Rahim (his driver) since the driver on his instructions was moving his cars. I also asked Excellency in that text whether he wanted me to have Rahim pack up his office. Then his Excellency sent me a text back and asked: ‘So it’s true you have sold the villa?’

“• Subsequently, His Excellency sent the driver to take possession of all the cars.

“The truth subsists with regard to the Dubai house. I will make no further comments on it because it is the subject of litigation filed by his Excellency against me.

“I need to also put on record that if I wanted to take His Excellency assets, I would not have returned to him his property documents in Abuja and Jos and document, allowed the driver to collect his cars, gave up the house in Asokoro and Yola.

“The last time I was in Nigeria I called to have the Asokoro and Yola documents delivered to him. It was never picked up and I still state that Excellency is free to send someone to have the documents picked up anytime he deems fit.”

Mike Bamiloye Hits Hard At Nollywood Actors

By John Michael Ojo
Veteran movie producer and actor, Mike Bamiloye has raised concern over the alarming rate of nudity among actors and actresses in  Nigerian home videos.

The Mount Zion Ministries founder who expressed worry  following the recent release of ‘Shanty Town’, where actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo popularly known as RMD and Nancy Isime played a role which many have described to be in contrast with the Nigeria Censored Board, urged filmmakers to be cautious of the role they play as it can have a negative impact on their immediate families and the society at large.

Taking to his Instagram account on Thursday, Bamiloye wrote:

Phyno Reveal The Difference Between Polygamy, Baby Mamas

By John Michael Ojo
Popular award-winning Nigerian rapper, Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike better known professionally as Phyno, has stated that there is a wide margin between those who practice polygamy and those who unintentionally have children out of wedlock.

Phyno disclosed this in a recent interview with a local news outlet where he said polygamy is when one decides to legally marry a second wife while referring to  ‘situation’ as home breaking.

The ‘Fada Fada’ crooner, added that celebrities are often misjudged when they have children out of wedlock as most people see such celebrities as polygamists.

Phyno however encouraged those who have been caught in the web of  ‘situation’ to own up and take full responsibility for the child/children involved.

He said; “Homes breaking is not polygamy, polygamy is when someone willingly says ‘I’m going to marry two wives,’ some people are caught in a situation and you can’t call that polygamy.  So, let’s be clear, Muslims practice polygamy.

“It can happen to you; it can happen to anyone. If you are caught in a situation, you have to stand up as a man and take responsibility for your child, you can’t call that polygamy. We always have to be clear on this because people come out to this.

“Polygamy is when I say I’m going to marry more than one wife, that’s polygamy. Situation happens to people and they are always unplanned, you called that polygamy.”
