He also wants Nigerians to know that government funds have not been used to pay for his daughter Zahra’s wedding to oil & gas billionaire’s son – Ahmed Indimi.

The president via his spokesman Garba Shehu released a statement saying that even the first daughter’s wedding will not be a royal event but rather a simple one paid for by the Buhari family.


He wrote,

Zahra Muhammadu Buhari’s wedding to Ahmed Mohammed Indimi starting today is a celebrity event to savor any day. Much as the family wants to make their daughter happy they, however, will not make it a royal wedding.

The President’s family is trying hard to keep it as simple as possible. Wedding Lalle, Fatiha, lunch event for the men and dinner for the women who must have come from far and near and the bride heads to her husband! In a rare twist, the President asked to be given the bill for the food at the banquet. Government, he said, has no business paying for that.

This should be treated as private. His family and personal aides put the money together to foot the bill. No government money in invitation cards, souvenirs or Aso-Ebi. That’s essential Buhari for you!!

LOL The GEJ directed shade is real & evident!
