President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter-in-law, Zahra Bayero Buhari has graduated with first-class honours in Architectural Science from an abroad university.
The president’s wife, Aisha Buhari disclosed this on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, on her social media handle.
Although the first lady did not reveal the university her daughter-in-law graduated from, it is believed to be outside the country.
She wrote; Congratulations to Mrs. Zahra B Buhari on your graduation with First Class Honors in Architectural Science. Wishing you all the best.”
Zahra is married to Buhari’s only son, Yusuf. She is the daughter of Emir of Bichi in Kano state, Nasiru Bayero.
This is coming amid the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike that has grounded academic activities in public varsities since February 14, 2022.
The union is demanding the release of revitalisation funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
The government had claimed to have addressed most of the union’s demands including the release of N50b for the payment of earned allowances for academic and non-academic and non-academic staff of universities but said the that the union will not be paid the arrears of the strike period.
ASUU has also insisted on not calling off the lingering strike until the arrears are settled.
Meanwhile, the federal government, through the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has dragged the striking university lecturers before the National Industrial Court (NIC).
However, Justice Polycap Hamman, on Monday, September 19, 2022, adjourned the matter to enable both the Federal Government to file the necessary papers for the suit.
