The wedding Fatiha of Yusuf Buhari, the son of President Muhammadu Buhari, and Zahra Bayero, the daughter of the Emir of Bichi, Alh. Nasiru Ado Bayero has come and gone but it will go down in history as one of the most power-packed and glamorous weddings of 2021.
The ceremony which took place in the bride’s hometown, Kano, on Friday, 20th August 2021, had in attendance dignitaries from all walks of life, including politicians from different political divides.
Some of the dignitaries in attendance include – The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo; former President, Goodluck Jonathan; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar; former President of Niger Republic, Mahamadu Isoufou; Gambian First Lady, Mrs Fatoumata Ban Barrow; Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje; Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi; Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni; Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu; Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello; Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq; Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, amongst several others.
The ceremony also had in attendance Royal fathers from across the country.
If there is a lesson to be learnt from Zahra and Yusuf’s wedding, it is the fact that politicians dine and wine together in harmony irrespective of ethnicity, religious beliefs and political affiliation.
