NAN reports that the wedding was conducted by the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II; and supported by the Chief Imam of Kano, Prof. Sani Zaharaddeen.

Buhari in his capacity as the bride’s ‘father’ received N500,000 dowry from the representative of the groom at the occasion.

Other important personalities that graced the occasion include former Head of State, retired Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar; Speaker, the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara and a retinue of serving Senators.

Some governors and ministers, as well as traditional rulers from across the country, also attended the occasion.

Others were former National Security Adviser, retired Gen. Aliyu Gusau, members of the business community, politicians and members of the diplomat corps, among others.

Some prominent media houses also reported that American billionaire, Bill Gates, also attended the occasion.

The event, which was also attended by prominent Islamic scholars and other well wishers from across the country, witnessed a large turnout of workers from various companies owned by the renowned business mogul.

Security at the occasion was water tight, as all the entrances leading to the palace were cordoned-off by heavily armed security operatives.

The development made it impossible for most journalists who turned up to cover the event to do so.
