Yusuf Buhari's wedding re-unites politicians

Meanwhile, it was reported that the wedding ceremony of Buhari's son, Yusuf, was a rare avenue for reunion among some Nigerian politicians who were somewhat torn apart by the battle for power.

Two of such persons who have not been best of friends at least in the public eyes are the president and one of his biggest critics, Atiku Abubakar.

It was, therefore, a joyful sight for attendees to see President Buhari warmly greeting his rival, the former vice president, at the solemnisation of the marriage contract between Yusuf and Zahra, the daughter of Emir of Bichi, Nasiru Ado Bayero in Bichi, on Friday, August 20.

Following the pomp and pageantry and display of power and wealth that characterized the plush wedding between the General Manager of Despite Media, Kennedy Asante Osei and Tracy Ameyaw, many people touted as the most expensive wedding yet in Ghana.

Kennedy Osei also happens to be the first son of Ghanaian business titan Osei Kwame Despite.

However, a social media user begs to differ on that tag and has shown in videos, a wedding believed to be the most expensive to have ever happened in Ghana.

According to an Instagram page by name Daily Celebrities News, a wedding that took place on July 27, 2019, was and still is the biggest wedding to be staged in Ghana.
