Who is dating President Muhammadu Buhari’s beautiful daughter, Zahra and who is not?
Zahra, 21 years old, who spends her time in Abuja working for Sickle Cell Aid Foundation and also the Ace Charity Brand Ambassador, is being linked with some men, including popular singer Korede Bello.
Bello in an interview admitted he and Zahra are friends.
“There was one that I was with Zahra Buhari as well and people began to speculate. They are my people and that is it, “he told Punch newspaper a few days ago.
The speculated relationship that is creating much buzz was that with Governor Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara State. Yari is also chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum.
Reports even said that Yari divorced his wife, Hadiza Umar Shinkafi to plunge deeply into the romance with Zahra.
However the 47-year-old Yari has denied all and even went ballistic in his reaction.
In a statement by his lawyer, he threatened to sue the newspapers which reported the false romance
“The publication, no doubt, is false and defamatory, and it is intended to bring the reputation of our client to ridicule and cause odium or malignity to our client.”
“Since the above publication, our client has received countless phone calls and text messages from family, friends, colleagues and associates, who incessantly call to enquire about the said publication.”
The University of Surrey educated Zahra is yet to react to the romantic stories swirling around her.
