President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived in Kano for the wedding ceremony of Yusuf, his son, to Zahra, daughter of Nasir Ado Bayero, the Emir of Bichi.


The president had earlier dispatched a high-level delegation ahead of his arrival for the wedding event.

The delegation had included Bashir Magashi, minister of defense; Sabo Nanono, minister of agriculture; Hadi Sirika, minister for aviation; and Suleiman Hussein Adamu, minister for water resources.

On Friday, Buhari arrived in Kano in the company of Yemi Osinbajo, vice-president, alongside their entourage.


Buhari’s delegation is expected to stay back after the wedding to represent him at the coronation of the emir at Bichi.

In March, Yusuf’s family members had visited the family of Ado Bayero to seek the marriage of Zahra.

The lovebirds were said to have met in the UK where the president’s son finished his undergraduate studies.


Zahra is a graduate of architecture from Brighton University in the UK.
