Muhammed Bello El-Rufai, son of the former Kaduna state governor has married Aisha Habibu Shuaibu as his second wife.
The wedding ceremony was held on Saturday, August 12, 2023. The event was attended by family members, top political figures, and close friends.
El-Rufai was, however, conspicuously absent at his first son’s wedding ceremony. This confirmed that he has travelled out of the country after reportedly withdrawing his interest to become President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s minister.
Uba Sani, the state governor, who represented his predecessor as the bridegroom’s father, shared pictures from the wedding ceremony on X.
“On Saturday, August 12th, 2023, I had the honor of standing in as the father of the groom at the wedding ceremony of my former Senior Legislative Aide, and House of Representatives Member (Kaduna North Fed. Constituency), Hon. Bello El-Rufai and his beautiful wife, Aisha Shuaibu,” Sani wrote.
“I wish them a happy married life and I pray that Allah make theirs amongst the best. Ameen.”
In May, Bello and Aisha tied the knot in a private Nikkah ceremony in Abuja.
Bello is a member-elect in the house of representatives. He is representing Kaduna north local government area (LGA).
Aisha, on the other hand, is the daughter of Habibu Shuaibu, the former military administrator for Plateau and Niger states.
In 2015, Bello married Kamilah, his first wife, in Kaduna. The couple had another wedding ceremony at Harrow Park in Abuja.
Kamilah is the niece of Maryam, the wife of Ibrahim Babangida, Nigeria’s former head of state.
