President Muhammadu Buhari has agreed to the new date for his daughter Zahra’s wedding to Ahmed Indimi, son of billionaire Muhammed Indimi, Daily Trust reports.
According to a source Buhari agreed to the December 16 date following persuasion from friends and family.
“The wedding will hold on the new date as approved by the president. The two families have agreed to the new date. I am not sure there will be any postponement on this occasion,” the source said.
Another source noted that the president was uncomfortable with the media attention the wedding had been getting.
The source said, “The president wants a low-key wedding for his daughter. He was not comfortable with the type of stories that were published about the wedding, especially on the money spent or gifts given to his daughter. The country is in a period of recession and it will be unfair for media to be quoting millions for the wedding of the president’s daughter.
“The Indimis have deleted every post about the wedding on their social media platforms. Zahra and her husband-to-be are also not posting anything about it for now,” he added.
