Buhari’s Son, Yusuf Sets To Marry Kano Princess

March 27, 2021

The son of President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf Buhari, is reportedly Set To Marry Kano Princess Zahra Bayero, the daughter of Emir of Bichi in Kano State, Nasir Bayero.

Credible sources told Daily Nigerian that the 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.

According to the source, the event would have taken place earlier but for the absence of the groom’s mother, Aisha Buhari, who recently returned from a six-month medical trip in Dubai.

The source added “Now that his mother returned a few weeks to Ramadan. It is clear the wedding will take place after Sallah holidays.”

Zahra Bayero is said to be currently studying architecture in the United Kingdom while Yusuf graduated from the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom in 2016.


On December 27, 2017, Yusuf was involved in a ghastly power bike accident around the Gwarinpa area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

He was stabilized for about a month at an Abuja hospital before he was flown abroad for treatment. He returned to Nigeria from the medical trip on March 1, 2018.
