Many people know Aisha Buhari as the first wife of the Grand commander of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but I’m sorry to burst your burbles, she isn’t. Buhari had a wife whom he divorced before eventually Taking Aisha as his wife. His first marriage was in 1971 and it ended it 1988, after which he married Aisha in 1989.
Safinatu Yusuf was born in plateau state, but she is originally from katsina state, she was born into the family’s of Alhaji Yusuf Mani. She studied at teachers training college, where she graduated in 1971.
Safinatu met Buhari at a very young age, Buhari was already in the military service as at the time they met.
Buhari allegedly met her in the company of Alhaji Musa Yaradua , when they both went to visit her father. They remained in contact after they met each other and they both got married in 1971. Their marriage was blessed with 4 children, namely, Zulaiha , Fatima, Safina and Nana Hadiza.
Buhari divorced Safinatu in 1988, when he cane back from jail, because she allegedly got financial assistance from Ibrahim Babangida, while he was away in detention following the overthrow of his government by Babangida.
Safinatu died on the 14th of January 2016. Do you think it was a form of betrayal, for her to have received help from Babangida while her husband was in jail? Or do you think he overreacted? See pictures of some of his daughters below.
