As President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf, weds Zahra, daughter to the Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado-Bayero, Bichi, one of Kano’s Emirate, will be agog on Friday and Saturday with dignitaries from across the world.

Aside from the wedding, Mr Ado-Bayero will be coronated as the new Emir of Bichi, barely a month after his elder brother, the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado-Bayero, was presented with the staff of office.

Shehu Ahmed, the chairperson of the organising committee for the wedding and coronation, told reporters on Wednesday that the president is expected to attend the wedding on Friday.
