PHOTOS: Yusuf Buhari’s wedding kicks off with polo tournament in Abuja

NEWS DIGEST – The wedding of Yusuf Buhari, the son of President Muhammadu Buhari, has kicked off with a polo tournament hosted by his family and friends ahead of his grand wedding to Kano princess, Zahra Bayero.

According to a series of photos obtained by Hausaroom, the president’s son was spotted at the Abuja guards polo club in a black shirt with inscription “Special polo tournament in honour of Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari and Zahra Nasir Bayero”.

The News Digest reports that Yusuf had bagged two traditional titles in Adamawa and Daura Emirates ahead of the wedding.

The royal kingdom of Ribadu in Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa State, where his mother hails from, first conferred the title of Marafan Ribadu on him while the Emir of Daura, Umar Farouq, also added the title of Talban Daura to the President’s son.

On December 27, 2017, Yusuf was involved in a ghastly power bike accident around Gwarinpa area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

He was stabilized for about a month at an Abuja hospital before he was flown abroad for treatment. He returned to Nigeria from the medical trip on March 1, 2018.

He remains reclusive after miraculously surviving the ghastly powerbike crash.
