el-Rufai’s wife presents her book, ‘An Abundance Of Scorpion’

The name of the author is hidden in the article that follows this heading. In the heading her name is not mentioned. The Heading-Master only refers to her husband, as if he had written the book. 

In the article her name, Hadiza Isma el-Rufai, follows the position of her husband. I do not know if this is an attempt at marketing the book or an attempt at showering praises on the head of the governor. 

And the picture that travels with the article is not a picture of the author, but is shows her husband (I presume).
