Goodluck Jonathan, ex-president, and Kayode Fayemi, Ekiti state governor, were among the prominent figures that attended the wedding of Yusuf, son of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Yusuf tied the knot with Zahra Bayero, daughter of the Emir of Bichi, in Kano on Friday.
The ceremony took place at the palace of the emir where the Fatiha was also staged.
The event was attended by the family members of the couple and a plethora of top dignitaries in politics including Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Atiku Abubakar, former vice president.
Also present were members of Buhari’s delegation including Bashir Magashi, minister of defense; Sabo Nanono, minister of agriculture; Hadi Sirika, minister for aviation; and Suleiman Hussein Adamu, minister for water resources.
