The bride is a daughter of the late ‘Madakin Kano’, Abdullahi Sarki Sani Yola, and a grand daughter of late Emir Ado Bayero.
The wedding was held at the residence of Madakin Kano in the Yola Quarters of Kano, with representatives of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and that of the Emir of Kano among dignitaries who attended.
Babafemi Ojudu, a presidential aide on political matters and former senator for Ekiti Central district, represented the vice president at the event.
Mahmoud Sani, a relative of the bride, stood as the bride’s trustee while the Babalaje of Iwoland, Ismail Kudaisi, served as the groom’s trustee.
Mr Kudaisi announced the payment of N1 million as bride price, after which both trustees announced their consent to the union.
Princes Firdaus is a niece to the current Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado-Bayero.
Her late father, Abdullahi Sarki Sani Yola, the 15th Madaki of Kano, died in 2008.
Farouk Sani-Yola, the elder brother of the bride told PREMIUM TIMES that the wedding is historic because the family of the Madaki gave out their daughter in marriage to another kingdom.
“We are delighted that this is the first time we are giving out in marriage to far away Yorubaland. Islam has bound us together. That made it possible for someone to marry even beyond the country,” Mr Sani-Yola said.
He said the 27-year-old bride holds a diploma in catering from the School of Management Studies, Kano.
Like other children in the Kano royal family, she has Qur’anic knowledge and was brought up in the palace of the Emir of Kano and the residence of the Madakin Kano, Mr Sani-Yola said.
