Her dad has been recently elected as the new president of the world’s most populous nation but as Zahra Buhari makes her way back to Nigeria from the UK where she lives, all eyes are on her and not her dad and here’s why.
Zahra was on the front line of her father’s very successful presidential campaign with some crediting her for helping to amp up her father’s appeal to Nigeria’s cool, and social media savvy youths.
She was also very vocal in her criticism of the outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, tweeting on many occasions that her father Muhammadu Buhari would bring much needed ‘change’ to the country.
Apart from her ‘political activism’, she’s being adored by a growing number of Nigerian men for her good looks and great fashion sense. As her father strolled through the Murtala Muhammad International Airport in Abuja, Zahra opted for a casual chic look in a black blazer and print trousers accessorised with cat eye glasses.
Is she a socialite? A girl’s rights activist? Budding politician? Or Fashionista? We can’t quite make up our minds yet, but something tells us she’ll bring a certain glitz to her father’s term in government and we can’t wait to see how her role will play out.
