Yusuf Buhari Biography

Yusuf Buhari ( born 23rd April) is the only surviving son of current Nigerian president, General Muhammadu Buhari. He’s one of President Buhari’s eight surviving children and was born by President Buhari’s second wife, Aisha Buhari. Yusuf Buhari had an older half-brother, Musa Buhari, who was born by President Buhari’s first wife Safinatu. Both Safinatu and Musa are sadly deceased. Presently, Yusuf has four sisters and three half-sisters. Halima Buhari Sheriff is one of Yusuf Buhari’s sisters.

After completing his tertiary education, Yusuf returned to Nigeria, where he remains to this day, still largely avoiding public attention. Nowadays, apart from the occasional family portrait, Yusuf is only seen attending public functions with his dad, with whom he has a close relationship.

Yusuf Buhari Career

What does Yusuf Buhari do for a living? This is another grey area in many Nigerians’ relationship with Yusuf Buhari. Nobody (except those people he’s close to, of course) seems to know.

Recently, a rumour circulate that Yusuf Buhari secretly owns two hotels in Abuja, with a third currently under construction in Dubai. According to the rumour, an unnamed, wealthy American businessman confirmed that Yusuf was looking to invest in his business interest in Nigeria- high-speed broadband.

The rumour goes on to claim that Yusuf Buhari took this American businessman to his five-star hotel in order to demonstrate his financial capability.

Throughout the whole controversy, Yusuf Buhari maintained a stoic silence, divulging nothing, so we’re none the wiser. One thing is certain, though, the whole Yusuf Buhari Occupation and Yusuf Buhari hotel story is a big hoax. It was probably dreamt up by someone with too much imagination. Perhaps, we’ll be able to provide you with infallible information as soon as we’re able to snaffle Yusuf Buhari phone number and have a heart to heart with him. For now though, no dice.

Yusuf Buhari Family

As is common in many Nigerian and indeed African homes, Yusuf Buhari has a very extensive list of distant and close relatives. Some of them are prominent and readily identifiable on the Nigerian scene, others not so much.

Yusuf Buhari’s grandparents are Adamu Buhari and Zulaihat Buhari. Both are late. His aunts include Hajiya Rakiya Adamu (President Buhari’s elder sister), and Zainab Umar Shinkafi (Aisha Buhari’s sister). Zainab Umar Shinkafi was awarded a Special Achievement Award by the Silverbird Group in 2017.

Yusuf also has several uncles who have carved their own niche. Their claim to fame is not based on their kinship with the first family alone. Yusuf Buhari uncles include Musa Halilu Ahmed, Modi Halilu, Usman Halilu and Hameed Halilu.

Musa Halilu Ahmed is a famous politician and entrepreneur. He’s also the Dujuma of Adamawa State, a traditional title with long and dignified origins. Dr Modi Halilu is a politician. All four are siblings of Aisha Buhari.

Yusuf Buhari Net Worth

Yusuf Buhari was apparently named by Forbes Magazine (no less) as the 4th richest child of a sitting president. Yusuf Buhari Net Worth was projected to be a tidy $2.3 billion. Many Nigerians were quick to register their dismay at this news, without first verifying its source.

Later, the “news” was revealed to be fake by discerning Nigerians who took their time to investigate the news and its source. Yusuf Buhari himself made no comments.

Unfortunately, that brings us back to where we started: with no clue as to the actual, authentic net worth of Yusuf Buhari. Any figure we throw out now will be mere conjecture, as Yusuf has never once confirmed or debunked any reports as to his net worth.
