The Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado Bayero, in Kano State, has said he wished his daughter, Zahra, graduated from the university and stayed with him a little longer before getting married to Yusuf, the only son of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The wedding Fathia of Zahra and Yusuf is scheduled to hold on Friday, August 20 at the Emir’s Palace in Bichi. However, the Emir told Daily Trust about his closeness to his children, adding that it was a difficult decision to marry off any of them.
“I’m very close to my children, so sending away Zahra is also an issue for me, but we thank God.She’s a young girl, only 20; and she’s in her final year in the university studying architecture.
I would have loved for Zahra to stay and finish her school and live with me a little longer, but we cannot change what God has ordained, we can only pray and wish them a successful married life,” he said. He, however, comforted himself with a hadith from the Quran.
