Zahra, the daughter of the President of Nigeria, has finally confirmed that her nuptials to Ahmed, son of billionaire businessman, Mohammed Indimi, will hold on December 16.
An Instagram post by Zahra, who is a graduate of Microbiology from the University of Surrey in England, “#zahmed2016 #InshaAllah’’ was all that was needed to douse insinuations currently making rounds on social media.
Interestingly, it is double celebration for the first family as the president also turns 73 on December 17-a day after the set wedding date.
Earlier slated for November 30 and December 4, the wedding had been moved to a new date, which was kept secret up until the wedding invitation of the young couple was leaked online over the weekend.
The first family had on Saturday disowned some photographs trending on social media and some conventional media said to be pre-wedding photographs of their daughter, Zahra and Ahmed.
A statement released by the Special Assistant on Media to the wife of the President, Adebisi Olumide-Ajayi, on Saturday, said the family described the photographs as untrue and embarrassing to them.
The statement read, “It has come to the notice of the Buhari family, that certain photographs are making the rounds both on social and conventional media claiming to be pre-wedding photographs of Zahra Buhari and Mohammed Indimi.
“Not only are these photographs untrue, but they are also a source of embarrassment to the couple.
“The couple would like to express that as much as they appreciate public interest and well wishes in their forthcoming marriage, they would at this particular point appreciate the public’s respect of their decision to make it a private affair.
“Official photographs would be released at the appropriate time.”
