The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has received his fourth wife, four years after the wedding took place. HRH Sa’adatu Barkindo Mustapha was brought to the Emir’s palace on Saturday while the traditional Budar Kai ceremony took place on Sunday. The Emir’s 22 year old bride has just graduated from a University in the United Kingdom where she went to study immediately after the marriage.
Recall that the Emir married the daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo-Mustafa, in a low-key ceremony held in Yola on September 25, 2015. But couldn’t consummate the marriage as she was still underage and had to complete her education. At the time the marriage was contracted, Sanusi was represented at the event by Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, while then Adamawa State Governor, Jibrilla Bindow, played the role of the bride’s guardian, who gave her hand out in marriage.
Sanusi was away in Saudi Arabia as leader of Nigeria’s delegation to the Hajj.
Sanusi, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has three other wives, which are Sadiya, daughter of the late emir of Kano, Ado Bayero; Maryam, and Rakiya.
