This happened at the Palace of the Emir of Bichi in Kano, where their wedding Fatiha took place on Friday.
The wedding was attended by a deluge of prominent figures, including the president and Yemi Osinbajo, vice-president.
Also present were members of Buhari’s delegation, including Bashir Magashi, minister of defence; Sabo Nano No, minister of agriculture; Hadi Sirika, minister for aviation; and Suleiman Hussein Adamu, minister for water resources.
Garba Shehu, Buhari’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, also said members of the delegation would stay back after the wedding to represent the president at the coronation of the emir at Bichi the next day.
In March, Yusuf’s family members had visited the family of Ado Bayero to seek the marriage of Zahra.
The lovebirds were said to have met each other in the United Kingdom, where the president’s son finished his undergraduate studies.
Zahra is a graduate of architecture from Brighton University in the UK.
Recall that the Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado Bayero, on Tuesday said he wished his daughter, Zahra, had completed her university education before getting married to the son of President Buhari.
The bride is in her final year in school.
