Yusuf Buhari, the son of President Muhammadu Buhari, has bagged two traditional titles in Adamawa and Daura emirates, ahead of his wedding to Kano princess, Zahra Bayero.

DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the royal kingdom of Ribadu in Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa State, where his mother hails from, first conferred the title of Marafan Ribadu on the president’s son preparatory to the grand wedding.

The president’s son’s wedding to Miss Bayero is tentatively scheduled to take in the first week of August, 2021.

Adding more honour to the groom to be, the Emir of Daura Umar Farouq, also added the title of Talban Daura on Yusuf.

Presidential spokesman Garba Shehu on Tuesday said Yusuf was awarded the title of Talban Daura, while his cousin, Musa Daura bagged the title of Dan Madamin Daura.

The same title was however awarded to the Guinean president, Alpha Conde, in August 2019. It is unclear if the monarch had stripped the president of the West African country of the title.

On December 27, 2017, Yusuf was involved in a ghastly power bike accident around Gwarinpa area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

He was stabilized for about a month at an Abuja hospital before he was flown abroad for treatment. He returned to Nigeria from the medical trip on March 1, 2018.

He remains reclusive after miraculously surviving the ghastly powerbike crash.
