The Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado Bayero in Kano State has expressed regret that his daughter, Zahra could not stay with him longer and successfully graduated from the university before tying the knot with Yusuf Buhari, the son of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Yusuf Buhari and Zahra Bayeri are set to have their traditional wedding ceremony on Friday, August 20 at the Emir’s Palace in Bichi.

In an interview with Daily Trust, the Emir, Nasir Ado Bayero opened up on how close he is to his children and that makes it very hard for him to give them out for marriage.

He, however, comforted himself with a hadith from the Quran.

“I’m very close to my children, so sending away Zahra is also an issue for me, but we thank God.

“She’s a young girl, only 20; and she’s in her final year in the university studying architecture

“I would have loved for Zahra to stay and finish her school and lived with me a little longer, but we cannot change what God has ordained, we can only pray and wish them a successful married life,” he said.
