Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir, Bauchi State has married off his daughter in a low key event in Bauchi on Thursday.

The wedding Fatiha of the Governor’s first daughter, Hauwa’u Bala Muhammad was impromptu as the representatives of the groom, Muhammadu Lawal Adamu only came to the Government House on Friday to present their son before the bride’s family for recognition and possibly pick a date.

Governor Mohammed “gave out Dr Hauwa Bala Mohammed to the son of the Emir of Azara in Nasarawa State, Lawal Adamu”, a statement by the Governor’s special assistant on new media Lawal Muazu Bauchi has said.

“The wedding fatiha came as surprise because parent of the groom were initially in Bauchi to seek for her marriage on a scheduled date but Governor Bala directed for the immediate conduct of the wedding fatiha.”

But just After confirming the existing mutual love and understanding between the two lovebirds, Gov Muhammad sought the consent of the groom’s family for the marriage to be performed on the spot.

The Deputy Chief of Imam of Bauchi Central Mosque, Malam Ahmad Inuwa Na’ibi was therefore asked to preside over the wedding Fatiha with the sum of N250, 000 paid as dowry.

This was after the earlier formalization of the arrangements between the representative of the Governor’s daughter, District Head of Duguri Ibrahim Y.M Baba and his counterpart of the bride’s family, Emir of Azara in Nasarawa State, Muhammadu Kabiru Ibrahim.

Speaking after the wedding Fatiha was pronounced, Gov Muhammad said the decision to have a very low key wedding was to avoid breaching of the preventive protocol of covid-19 pandemic as there are teeming spectators awaiting the eventful day.

The Governor apologized for those who may feel offended for the inability to invite them and congratulated them for witnessing their marriage urging them to be patient and tolerant in building their matrimonial home.
