Zahra Buhari Bayero, wife to Yusuf Buhari, and daughter to the Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero has graduated from the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom, with first class honors in Architecture.

Her feat was announced in a post by her mother-in-law and Nigeria’s First Lady on her official Facebook Page, on Tuesday.

“Congratulations to Mrs. Zahra B Buhari on your graduation with First Class Honors in Architectural Science. Wishing you all the best!” the statement said.

In the pictures published by Mrs Buhari on her post, Mrs Bayero was seen in her graduation gown surrounded by her close family including her father, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero, the Emir of Bichi and his children, and the the First Lady, Hajiya Aisha Buhari and her children, including the celebrant’s husband, Mr Yusuf Buhari.

The Emir of Bichi, Nasir Ado Bayero, in Kano State, had in August said he wished his daughter, Zahra, graduated from the university and stayed with him a little longer before getting married to Yusuf, the only son of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“I’m very close to my children, so sending away Zahra is also an issue for me, but we thank God.”

“She’s a young girl, only 20; and she’s in her final year in the university studying architecture.

“I would have loved for Zahra to stay and finish her school and live with me a little longer, but we cannot change what God has ordained, we can only pray and wish them a successful married life,” the monarch said.
