Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari‘s son, Yusuf got married to a princess from the country’s northern Kano State recently.

Photos surfaced on social media of the traditional ceremony between Yusuf and Zara Nasir Ado Bayero, daughter of Emir of Bichi, Kano.

Last month, media outlets reported that several governors, ministers, government officials and VIPs had been hosted by the current Emir of Kano, who is the older brother of the prospective bride’s father, Emir of Bichi.

The bride, Zara, is a 19-year-old graduate of Brighton University, UK where she studied Architecture.

Her father is the fourth child of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

Whiles the traditional ceremony has been conducted, the Islamic wedding is set to take place on Friday, 20th August 2021, at the Bichi Emir palace in Kano state.

The President who recently returned from medical checks in the UK is expected to be in attendance.
