As President Muhammadu Buhari‘s daughter, Zahra, prepares to walk down the aisle with Ahmed, son of billionaire businessman, Mohammed Indimi, on November 30 and December 4, more information about the hitherto low-key wedding have been revealed.

Zahra is also the ambassador for the SCAF, a foundation set up to arrest and minimize the case of sickle cell around the nation.

The groom is the marketing director of his father’s Oriental Energy Resources. A socialite, he trended on social media after he showed off a screenshot of his account balance of N99.864, 731 on Instagram.

Although the bride, who is a graduate of Microbiology from the University of Surrey in England, has yet to officially comment on her impending nuptials, the same can’t be said of her in-laws, the Indimis.

On Tuesday, one of the Indimi daughters, Rahma, posted Zahra’s picture on her Instagram Page, saying her family is “happy to have (Zahra) as one of theirs.

Her post read, “I met this young girl many years ago and I was smitten by her cheekiness. Only years later down the line she is to become ours. My darling Zahra, you are an amazing young lady with so much to give. We have seen and conquered our mission. My prayer is for the two of you to have a beautiful marriage and life with plenty of little ‘Rahma’s running around) we are happy to have you as one of us. Good things are hard to get and the fight was worth it. We can’t wait.”

According to reports, an introduction ceremony between both families held at the Aso Villa, Abuja on Friday, November 18, The wedding is said to be on a low-key celebration as the president desires it to be a simple and an intimate ceremony to be attended by only close family and friends.

But, the Indimis, who are one of the prominent Northern Nigerian families, are not known to do things in half measure. Indeed, they are renowned for throwing some of the best bashes in town and this time around, they are pulling out all the stops for what many have tagged the wedding of the century.

Over the weekend, Zahra received customized Louis Vuitton boxes from the Indimi family. The boxes are called Laife, and in northern tradition, the groom’s family buys a box for the bride. The box is usually filled up with diamond and gold jewelry, shoes, bags, super wax, laces, perfumes, underwear, cosmetics and more.

Once more, the Indimis posted the photographs of the boxes on Instagram. The LV boxes have Zahra’s name customized as ZBI (Zara Buhari Indimi).
