On Friday, September 4, President Muhammadu Buhari and the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, gave out the hand of their last daughter, Hanan, in marriage to Mohammed Turad Sha’aban.
The wedding will be the first to be held inside Presidential Villa, Abuja, and it was in order to respect COVID-19 protocols.
Two Juma'at prayers were held at Aso Rock on the day, one for the regular Friday prayers and the second for the wedding.
The holy solemnization of the wedding was carried out by Imam Abdulwahid Suleiman of the State House Mosque.
The First Lady whose excitement was immeasurable shared memorable photos from the event on her Instagram page with an emotional caption:
"Today is a great and happy day for my family as we witnessed the wedding of my daughter, Aisha Hanan Buhari to Mohammed Turad Sani Sha’aban.
I am overwhelmed by the outpour of goodwill and support from family, friends and well-wishers. Let me use this opportunity to thank everyone that graced the occasion with their presence and those that could not, for the understanding that at this time of a global pandemic and the need to strictly adhere to the advice of our health authorities necessitated limited gathering.
We appreciate your prayers for a blessed union, for the couple as they begin their marital life."
The bride's mother also shared photos of her immediate family as they come together to celebrate with one of their own.
The groom is the son of Munira, a former first lady of Lagos state and ex-wife of Buba Marwa but he was from her first marriage before she married Marwa. The groom's father, Alhaji Mahmud Sanni Sha'ban is said to be President Buhari's friend.
Honourable Sani Sha'aban was a former lawmaker who represented Sabon Gari, Zaria in the 5th Assembly and he was also a former gubernatorial candidate in the 2007 and 2011 elections.
