Bello el-Rufai, son of the former Kaduna State governor Nasir el-Rufai, on Saturday held the ceremony of his wedding to Aisha Shuaibu.

It was attended by family members, top political figures and close friends.

Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani represented the groom’s father. He shared pictures from the wedding ceremony on Twitter.

“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.”

El-Rufai is said to have travelled out of the country following the Senate’s decision to step down the confirmation of his ministerial nomination by President Bola Tinubu over security issues.

In May, Bello and Aisha tied the knot in a private Nikkah ceremony in Abuja.

Aisha, an entrepreneur, is the daughter of the former military administrator for Plateau and Niger states, Colonel Habibu Shuaibu.

Bello is a House of Representatives member-elect representing Kaduna North.

In 2015, Bello married Kamilah in Kaduna. A ceremony was also held at Harrow Park, Abuja.

Kamilah’s aunt, Maryam, is the wife of the former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida.
