#President Buhari’s influential Son, Yusuf, becomes District head in Daura


Powerful and influential Yusuf, son of Nigeria’s President, President Muhammadu Buhari, has been turbaned the new District Head of Kwasarawa under Daura Emirate in his home state, Katsina, deposing the former Guinean President Alpha Conde

Yusuf has also been turbaned the Talban Daura.

The ceremony was held on Saturday in Daura with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in attendance.

Other dignitaries at the event include Senate President, Ahmad Lawan; Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State; Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika, Niger Delta and Science and Technology ministers, among others.

On December 27, 2017, Yusuf was involved in a fatal powerbike accident around the Gwarinpa area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, and subsequently admitted to Cedacrest Hospital in Abuja.

He was discharged from hospital on January 12, 2018 and flown abroad for further treatment.

In August 2021, Yusuf married Zahra Bayero, daughter of the Emir of Bichi.

The lovebirds were said to have met each other in the United Kingdom where the President’s son finished his undergraduate studies.

Zahra is a graduate of Architecture from Brighton University in the UK.

In August 2019, the nonagenarian Emir turbanned the then President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, as Talban Daura.

The emir eulogized  the virtues of Mr. Conde, adding that the honour was in recognition of the love he (Conde) has shown Mr Buhari and the people of Daura.

Despite the fact that the title is held by the Former Guinean President, in September this year the Emir announced Mr Buhari’s son as the new Talban Daura.
