Kano, a storied, ancient city was the centre of attention yesterday as it hosted a grand wedding of the elites.
The city was the choice for the wedding fathia of Yusuf Buhari, son of President Muhammadu Buhari and his beau, Zahra Bayero.
Zahra is the daughter of the Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Nasir Ado Bayero.
The extravagant ceremony witnessed a roll call of some of the heavyweight personalities from Nigeria’s political firmament; with a sprinkling of some of the country’s top aristocrats in the business and traditional circles. Indeed, the list of attendees read like a Who’s Who.
From the number one citizen himself, President Muhammadu Buhari and his wife, Aisha; through Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo; former President, Goodluck Jonathan and Senate President, Ahmad Lawan; to well over 12 serving state governors in tow; the wedding was definitely one for the glossy pages. In addition to the heavyweight cast of VIPs and dignitaries, the glamorous wedding in Kano also attracted a huge turnout of well-wishers who thronged the palace of the Emir of Bichi, venue of the auspicious event.
