Northern Nigeria is about to witness one of the most glamorous weddings of the year as Nana Shagari, who is the granddaughter of former Nigerian President Shehu Shagari, and Saleh Lukat, former Vice President Namadi Sambo’s in-law are set to marry.
Nana is described as “a combination of beauty and brains.” She graduated with a First Class degree from the University of Leicester, UK at the age of 19 and is currently a student at the Nigerian Law School. Her father, Muktar Shagari was one of the longest serving Ministers during the Olusegun Obasanjo regime and also served as the deputy governor of Sokoto State for 8 years.
The groom-to-be Saleh is also described as “an enterprising businessman, with some successful businesses to his credit”.
According to reports, preparations are already in top gear for this grand event which is set to take place in the capital city, Abuja, before the end of the year.
