Buhari cancels daughter’s wedding over expensive gifts

30 November 2016, 11:21

Abuja - The wedding ceremony of Zahra, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, to son of billionaire businessman, Mohammed Indimi, scheduled for December 4, 2016, has been put on hold indefinitely.

The postponement according to Daily Post was on the insistence of Buhari, who was uncomfortable with the attention his daughter’s wedding has received in the media, particularly with news of customized wedding boxes as gifts to Zahra costing a whopping N44m.

The introduction ceremony between both families was held at the Aso Villa, Abuja on Friday, November 18.

The wedding programme itself  was scheduled between Wednesday 30th November and Sunday 4th December, 2016 before it was postponed indefinitely.

Buhari, who had wanted a simple and an intimate ceremony to be attended by only close family and friends, is said not to be happy with the media attention the marriage has generated.

Zahra has been in the news recently following circulation on the social media of images of her expensive wedding gifts.

She received about 30 customized LV (Louis Vuitton) boxes from the family of her husband-to-be, Ahmed Indimi

The LV boxes according to Daily Trust have Zahra’s name customized as ZBI (Zara Buhari Indimi).

The LV bags which total about 30 and allegedly cost about £120, 000 (approximately N47 144,502, using the official rate of N392.87 to a pound) are said to have been delivered to Zahra in 30 exotic cars.

Angered by the show of wealth of Ahmed, Buhari has ordered that a security check be conducted on Ahmed and his source of stupendous wealth,

The President it was gathered is also not comfortable with the groom’s father, Mohammed Indimi’s perceived closeness to ex-President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, who is believed to be against the emergence of Buhari in 2015.
