Yusuf, the son of President Muhammad Buhari, plans to marry the daughter of the Emir of Bichi in the state of Kano, Nasir Bayero.
Zahra Bayero is currently a student in the UK and is studying architecture.
Yusuf graduated in 2016 from the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom.
Credible sources told the DailyNigerian that the wedding ceremony would take place “in the next two to three months”.
“Preparations are in top equipment for a big event. As tradition predicts, the groom’s parents met with the bride’s parents to express Yusuf’s interest in marrying Zahra, ”the source said, praying for anonymity.
The source added that the event would have taken place earlier, but that it was not for the groom’s mother, Aisha Bukhari, who recently returned from a six-month medical trip to Dubai.
“Now that his mother has returned to Ramadan for a few weeks [Muslim holy month], it is clear that the wedding will take place after Sallah’s holidays, ”the source said.
On December 27, 2017, Yusuf was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident around the Gwarinpa area in the federal capital, Abuji.
He was stabilized for about a month in a hospital in Abuja, before being transferred for treatment abroad. He returned to Nigeria from a medical trip on March 1, 2018.
He was still withdrawn after miraculously surviving a horrific motorcycle accident.
