Shehu Yar’Adua, son of the late President Umar Musa Yar’Adua, is set to tie the knot with his partner.


A source close to the family confirmed the date of the wedding ceremony to TheCable Lifestyle on Tuesday.

It is understood that associates of the late president are making plans with Turai, his widow, for the wedding to hold on July 23, in Maiduguri, Borno state capital.

“Shehu is the son of our late principal who was also a personal friend to some or us. And that makes Shehu our son,” Yayale Ahmed, the former secretary to government of the federation (SGF) under Yar’Adua, told TheCable.


“He is also a respectful young man as you would expect of someone with his upbringing.

“The least we can do is support his mother, the former First Lady, Hajia Turai YarAdua and the family.”

Shehu’s bride-to-be, it was revealed, is Yacine, the 22-year-old daughter of Mohammed-Nur Sheriff, the businessman, and politician.


Shehu, aged 29, had his first degree in Economics from the Schellhammer Business School, Spain.

He subsequently obtained a master’s in International Relations from Webster University in the Netherlands.

In turn, his bride holds a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Surrey, United Kingdom.
