Quoting a report by AbujaReporters,
It is no longer news that a date has been picked for the wedding of Zahra, Buhari’s daughter from his present wife, Aisha. The pretty young girl, as we announced earlier today has been slated for wedding to Ahmed, Indimi son to Maiduguri billionaire businessman, Mohammed Indimi. The wedding Fatiha, which has been slated for Friday, 2nd of December, 2016 is expected to be a crowd puller ordinarily.
However, the President is said to be of the opinion that the event should not be blown out of proportion as he has shown modesty in a previous wedding of one of his daughters, though this is not without some grumblings in the Presidency as some people have looked at the opportunity to make some things for themselves.
An issue which is however said to have generated the hush hush wedding celebration is the fact that a Northern Governor and indeed the Chairman of the Governors in person of Yari of Zamfara state had asked for the young girl’s hand in marriage and from our very reliable source, he was not even informed that he had lost out until a date was picked for the Fatiha.
Meanwhile, for Ahmed, he also had sought succour somewhere else. According to reports, he was said to have sought the hand of one of the daughters of Mamman Daura in marriage but was rebuffed only for him to up his game and reach for someone more highly connected to the corridors of power.
Even though the First family might want to look the other way when people raise other motives other than pure love as the basis for the wedding, many Nigerians would always see it as a union engineered by parents with little or no inputs from their kids.
We can only pray that it is successful. Zahra in the short time that her father has been in power, has shown that she is humane and not vain, in converse to her would be husband who is little known as being circumspect.
