Meet the Kano princess who stole heart of Buhari’s only son

Preparations for the planned wedding of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari, have started in earnest.

On Sunday, the President’s delegation visited the Emir of Kano’s palace where talks about the wedding were held.

Governor of Jigawa State, Abubakar Badaru, led the President’s delegation to the Palace of Emir of Kano alongside other top government officials.

It was gathered that Yusuf, the only son of President Buhari met his heart-throb, Zarah Ado Bayero, in the United Kingdom where they both had their undergraduate studies.

Here are the interesting things to know about the ‘incoming’ daughter-in-law of the President:
