Despite being the one of the strictest former military rulers and Nigeria’s citizen number one, Muhammadu Buhari is, of course, a family man.
Buhari and his family are blessed with good health and good looks.
While the photos of Zahra Buhari, one of the president’s daughters, surfaced on the internet and the resulting effect was absolutely surprising. Buhari’s daughter caused wild excitement and frenzy on among Nigerians.
The same thing happened when Yusuf Buhari appeared in public for the first time as he arrived in the country from the United Kingdom together with his father before the inauguration on May 29, 2015.
Yusuf bears a striking similarity to his father and appears to also have his jovial humour.
His first appearance broke on the Internet.
Below is a throwback photo of Yusuf with his sisters and mother Aisha Buhari.
General Buhari’s first wife was the late Hajiya Safinatu Buhari. He courted her when she was fourteen and married her at the age of eighteen. A very shy and conservative Muslim woman, she was not too visible on the social radar. They married in 1971 and the marriage was blessed with four children, all girls (Zulaiha Magajiya (the first daughter, and she was named after Buhari’s mother) Fatima, Hadizatu Nana, and Safinatu Lami).
Buhari married Hajiya Aisha Halilu, a Fulani lady from Adamawa State in December 1989. The couple have five children together.
