Today (yesterday) is a great and happy day for my family as we witnessed the wedding of my daughter, Aisha Hanan Buhari to Mohammed Turad Sani Sha’aban. I am overwhelmed by the outpour of goodwill and support from family, friends and well wishers.
Let me use this opportunity to thank everyone that graced the occasion with their presence and those that could not, for the understanding that at this time of a global pandemic and the need to strictly adhere to the advice of our health authorities necessitated limited gathering. We appreciate your prayers for a blessed union, for the couple as they begin their marital life.
