The son of President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf Buhari, is reportedly set to tie the knot with Zahra Bayero, the daughter of Emir of Bichi in Kano State, Nasir Bayero.
Sources revealed to Daily Nigerian that the royal wedding ceremony will take place “in the next two to three months”
“Preparations are on top gear for the grand event. As the tradition provides, the parents of the groom have met with the parents of the bride to express Yusuf’s interest in marrying Zahra,” the source said, pleading anonymity.
The source then added that the event would have taken place earlier but due the absence of the groom’s mother, Aisha Buhari, who recently got back from a six-month medical trip in Dubai.
“Now that his mother returned a few weeks to Ramadan [Muslim holy month], it is clear the wedding will take place after Sallah holidays,” the source added.
Zahra Bayero is currently studying architecture in the United Kingdom. Yusuf graduated from the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom in 2016.
