The Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado Bayero has spoken about the forthcoming wedding of his daughter, Zahra to Yusuf, the only son of President Muhammadu Buhari.
KanyiDaily had reported that that the wedding Fathia of Zahra and Yusuf is scheduled to hold on Friday, August 20 at the Emir’s Palace in Bichi, Kano State.
Speaking with Daily Trust ahead of the wedding, the Emir said he wished his daughter graduated from the university and stayed with him a little longer before getting married to Buhari’s son.
He also spoke on his relationship with his children, adding that it was a difficult decision to marry off any of his children because he is close to them all.
“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.
Perhaps the decision became more difficult for the monarch after having married off another of his daughters earlier in the year.
But the Emir said he took solace from the Hadiths, especially the part where the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, ‘When you successfully raise three daughters and marry them off, Allah will give you a place in paradise”.
“This is my prayer and hope that through them God will give me Aljanah,” he said.
