“As an insider, I can tell you that even the representative of the Gaidam family who handed over the girl to her in-laws did not initially know who the groom was. They only told the old man that she was getting married to someone called Yusuf.

“It was yesterday that some people know that the governor also bears Yusuf.”

Further reports said Governor Buni spent the night at his father-in-law’s residence in Kano state after the wedding ceremony.

There are unconfirmed reports that Buni, who already has two wives, plans to make his predecessor’s daughter the first lady of the state.
