President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Fatima, is getting married to her heartthrob, Malam Gimba Yau Kumo, today, October 28.
She will become the fourth wife of Gimba, who is a former Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria
Dignitaries and traditional rulers have already started arriving for the ceremony taking place at Buhari’s residence in Maiaduwa GRA, Daura, Katsina state.
Various brands of assorted cars and jeeps belonging to invitees flooded the town, causing high vehicular traffic.
Before proceeding to the venue of the wedding, several of the invitees drove straight to the Emir of Daura’s palace, Alhaji Umar Farouq, to pay homage.
It appears the president will not be attending the wedding of his second daughter as he was spotted at Jumat prayer service at the Presidential Villa mosque today.
Meanwhile, report has it that super markets, shops, soft drink sellers and commercial motorcyclists recorded a boom in their businesses as visitors and well wishers from across the country were sighted purchasing various traditional wares.
