The last few days has seen media attention focused on first daughter of the federation – Zahra Buhari as she preps for marry Ahmed Indimi the son of billionaire Muhammed Indimi.
The couple had their wedding introduction at the Aso Villa in Abuja on November 18 and were due to have their wedding festivities between Nov. 30 and December 4.
Just last weekend Zahra received 30 personalized Louis Vuitton cases said to be worth over £120,000 from her fiancé.
However according to reports from The Daily Correspondents, the wedding plans have been put on hold indefinitely by the father of the bride.

The postponement was on the insistence of President Muhammadu Buhari, who, according to a source close to the two families, was uncomfortable with the attention his daughter’s wedding has received in the media, particularly with news of customised wedding boxes as gifts to Zahra costing a whopping N44m.
An introduction ceremony between both families had earlier held at the Aso Villa, Abuja on Friday, November 18, but the wedding programme itself scheduled between Wednesday 30th November and Sunday 4th December, 2016, is supposed to be a low-key celebration as the President desires it to be a simple and an intimate ceremony to be attended by only close family and friends.
“But the whole media attention has changed everything now and the President is not happy,” our source said.
Aside that, it was also gathered that the President who has ordered that a security check be conducted on Ahmed and his source of stupendous wealth, is also not comfortable with the groom’s father, Alhaji Mohammed Indimi’s perceived closeness to ex-President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB.
Former President Ibrahim Babangida is believed to be a long time godfather of billionaire Mohammed Indimi, more so the former President was against the emergence of Buhari in 2015.
Our source further said President Buhari who had such information at his disposal before consenting to the marriage may have been prevailed upon by his closest political allies to have a rethink on giving out his daughter to the Indimis.
I pray this isn’t true! But I wanna know what happens to all those Louis Vuitton cases if the wedding is cancelled? I hope she doesn’t have to return them? ?
