The Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria's daughter, would be getting married in a ceremony, that we hear would kick-off from Wednesday, December 5, 2012 and as it is usual in the Northern part of Nigeria, the ceremony would last through the week till the weekend. So the Sambo's (the VP & his wife Amina) would play host to many dignitaries from all over Nigeria, who would definitely converge in Kaduna to celebrate with the VP's family.
Not too long after in the same month of December, on the 22nd of the month to be precise, all things being equal, the former Head of State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, Rtd, would play host to many Nigerians from far and near, as his gorgeous daughter, Halima would be getting married. The wedding fatiha would also hold in Kaduna, just like the VP daughter's own and we hear it would last for 7 days. We expect that it would be another gathering of Nigeria's who is who at both weddings. General M. Buhari, was the presidential candidate of the CPC (Congress for Progressive Change) at the last election.
While the VP is from Kaduna and was formerly the Governor of the State, General Buhari on the other hand is from Katsina, but lives in Kaduna. Interestingly, the General would be clocking 70, on December 17, 2012, so that means a double-pronged celebration for the family.
We wish them well. Just as we were about publishing this post, we just heard that General Buhari's first daughter, Zulai 40, has passed on. She died on Thursday, November 29, 2012 after delivering a baby at the Nasara Hospital, Marafa Estate in Kaduna. She left behind her new born baby girl and 2 other kids- Amira & Mohammed. May the Soul of the dearly departed rest in peace. We don't now know, if this would affect the dates of the upcoming wedding ceremony.
