AGF, DSS Boss, Governors, Others Abandon Duty Posts to Attend Buhari Son’s Engagement
The attorney-general of the federation who doubles as the minister of justice, Abubakar Malami and the director-general of the Department of State Service (DSS), Yusuf Magaji Bichi, had enough time on their hands on Sunday to attend the engagement ceremony of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son to the Emir of Bichi’s daughter in Kano.
Nigerians have marveled at the insensitivity of the top government functionaries who left their respective duty posts to attend such a personal matter in their numbers.
“Despite the challenges that this country is facing, for which they have all failed to provide a semblance of solution, they think abandoning their respective public responsibilities to attend a very personal engagement is the thing to do. What a country of sycophants!” said an angry Ishaku Ado Gwandu in a post to Nigerian Sketch.
Mustapha Karami said “It is shameful. They are unserious Wallahi!”
The president’s son, Yusuf Buhari wants to get married to Zara Nasir Ado Bayero, a daughter of the Emir of Bichi.
Malami led the representatives of the groom, which consisted of governors of Kebbi, Jigawa and Borno States, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, Badaru Abubakar and Babagana Zulum respectively.
Another report said the governor of Jigawa was leader of the delegation.
Other members of the delegation included a former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, and Kano state deputy governor, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna.
The delegation had on behalf of Yusuf Buhari sought the hand of Zahra Nasir Ado Bayero from the Emir of Kano, who is the elder brother of the Emir of Bichi.
They were hosted by the Emir of Kano who is the older brother of the prospective bride’s father.
After observing all Islamic and cultural rites, the Emir of Kano, Dr. Aminu Ado Bayero, conveyed his approval of the union ahead of the wedding day.
The bride-to-be, Zara, is a 19-year-old graduate of Brighton University, UK. She studied Architecture.
According to reports, the wedding is expected to be held between August and September this year.
