President Buhari's daughter and Ahmed Indimi will now be joint in matrimony later in December 2016 after an initial postponement.

The date for the nuptials had been widely publicised as December 2, 2016, until, according to reports, the President stepped in and asked the ceremony to be moved to a later date.

It is being reported that the President, who prefers a low-key celebration, did not like the attention being drawn to the ceremony.

It was also widely reported that the groom’s family presented Zahra with 30 expensive Louis Vuitton bags, adding to the President's reasons for disapproval..

A new invitation card which has now surfaced gives reason to believe that a new wedding date has been fixed December 16, 2016.

Another wedding invite seems to have been printed by the bride's family, as both families continue to prepare for wedding fatiha which the President, the bride's father, is keen to keep as simple as possible.

All the very best to the couple as they prepare to finally enter into another phase of their lives.
