EXPOSED: The Expensive Lifestyle of Zahra Buhari

by on March 21, 2016

BREAKING TIMES has uncovered details of the expensive lifestyle of Zahra Buhari, one of the daughters of APC Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.

Contrary to the impression being created by General Buhari that he is a poor, humble, modest and incorruptible former Head of State, the lifestyle of his children, notably Zahra Buhari – a Medical Microbiology student of the University of Surrey, United Kingdom, speaks otherwise.


Investigative reports show that Buhari may have spent about £150,000 in the past four years on just Zahra who is one of his several daughters, with her tuition alone gulping about £64,000 and £86,000 spent on accommodation, travels and other living expenses in the UK. This, when converted to Naira, amount to about N40 million. For a man who claims to have only 150 cows and N1 million in his bank account, this lavish and expensive lifestyle doesn’t add up.

Early on Tuesday, Zahra created a stir on Twitter when some nicely photo-shopped photographs of her were released online. She is also spotted in one of the pictures on a shopping spree with a friend in a shop on London High Street.

Zahra is also seen in a video during her sister Halima’s wedding to Babagana Sherrif, allegedly a son of former Bornu State Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff – a man the APC has described as a funder of Boko Haram. At the wedding, media reports show that Ali Modu Sherrif received the bride, Halima Buhari on behalf of the groom.

    It would really be nice if journalists in this country could try and do their jobs properly and not just write what comes to their heads, they should do the work required before publishing their works. The first pointer to the falsehood of this story is that she is said to be attending the university of surrey, if you are going to insinuate that she is living an expensive lifestyle then write that she attends one of the most prestigious universities in the UK not the university of Surrey. This school is where u wld find the children of working middle class citizens in Nigeria.

    I don’t know why you would say that he (buhari) is poor, he gets allowances from the government for being a past head of state, as is being done in other countries. Which would still make him very very comfortable, well above middle class.

    It is a pity that APC has no other person to present as a presidential candidate. They are all pretenders.

    buhari was once a head is state and a general for that matter he can still afford all these let not decisive ourselves the man isn’t poor he might be modest and not loud like others so I don’t understand this much ado on his properties hence leave for for a while at least for him to concertrate to do his new job

    Nigerian are always so envious of one another.. work hard, think of a business strategy, become rich and make sure you always remember the little people… In fact bring some of the people with you on the way up.

    Big deal? This reporter needs more exposure. The world is now a global village: you can learn remotely, no dey carry last like dis abeg. Cummulating the fees and board for 4 years is misleading, the Buhari’s didnt incur the expenditure at once na. Plus it is common knowledge that Mrs Buhari contributes significantly to their bills via income from her spas in Abuja and Kaduna.

    Comment… u guys are all fools… u will follow buhari to grave even when he is turning the economy upside down.. look at the exchange rate, fuel prise, wanted to increase power tarrif, budget brouhaha and others.. the point is DAT buhari is a confuse man and a pretender.. he claimed DAT he had only few millions and few properties while he lavishes over 40 millions on his daughter… u guys shud wake up and stop being party goats


  • June 10, 2016 at 1:19 am

    U are the biggest fool here…people just talk without having knowledge of anything going on in the world. So now that the fuel price and exchange rate has increased,is it the president’s fault? U should research…any country that has more than 50% of its income from petroleum is facing the same problem,the problem is worldwide…dont u watch world news? Or dont u have knowledge on economics? U’re just there blaming the president for what he can’t control. What matters most in a country is peace,and so far…we are relieved from insecurity. People just want corrupt men to be ruling this country because when a corrupt man is ruling,money flows…but sorry,not this time around…this time,we want development and change
