EXCLUSIVE: President Buhari’s daughter Zahra sets wedding date with son of Borno billionaire Indimi
President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Zahra Buhari, has set December 2 2016 as the wedding date with Ahmed Indimi, son of billionaire oil magnate Alhaji Mohammed Indimi, owner of Oriental Energy.
Ahmed Indimi is a director of Crude marketing at his father’s Oriental energy, a firm that deals in oil exploration and production with several projects offshore of Nigeria's Niger Delta region.
The first family has been busy for the past three weeks with finishing touches on the ceremony.
Per Second News exclusively gathered from credible sources in the Indimi and Buhari families that the events will be held in Borno, Abuja and Katsina respectively.
Ahmed attended Global International College in Lagos for his degree foundation program. He completed his Degree in Information Technology at the American InterContinental University, in Atlanta, USA. He then proceeded to complete an MBA in Internet Security at the same Institution where he served as the treasurer of the Student Union Government at the London Campus.
Indimi, through his father’s company has donated frequently to IDP’s and NGO programs of Zahra Buhari in recent times.
The groom’s father Mohammed Indimi, comfortably on number 39 of Forbes Africa's 50 Richest 2015 Lists, previously ranked 37 in 2014. He was in the news last year for donating $14 million (N5.6 billion) building named ‘Mohammed Indimi International Business Center’ to Lynn University, in the United States as part of activities of the University’s Graduating events with one of his daughter’s, Ameena Indimi as one of the graduating students.
He was criticized for neglecting schools in his native Borno that has been ravaged by the calamitous Boko Haram sect.
Oriental Energy was awarded an Oil Prospecting License (OPL) 224 by the regime of former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida. Incidentally, one of his daughter Yakolo Indimi-Babangida is married to former president Babangida’s son Mohammed. Investigations by Per Second News reveal the marriage has crashed.
Zahra’s husband to be Ahmed and his seven siblings have been accused of financial recklessness and ostentatious lifestyle. A former employee at the company disclosed to this media outfit under the condition of anonymity that the Indimi children are always at war and never agree on anything, especially when it comes to spending their father’s oil company’s money, as they fly around the world in private jets, lodge in most expensive hotels, and go on expensive holidays.
Meanwhile, Per Second News gathered that Zamfara state governor Abdulaziz Yari has been left with a bitter taste having lost out in his quest to marry Zahra as his 4th wife.
The chairman of the Nigeria’s governors forum has vowed to change his ways after living what have arguably been the most tumultuous last three weeks of his life.
Unconfirmed sources said he sponsored several programs of the first daughter and has invested hugely in the failed project.
Close sources to the first lady revealed that Yari’s quest to confront his demons took an emotional turn after he learnt of the marriage plans, after running after her for months.
