‘I Can’t Speak Hausa Fluently’ – President’s Daughter, Zahra Buhari


A daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, Zahra, on Friday, stunned
guests at a BBC Hausa event when she revealed that she is unable to
speak fluently in Hausa, her father’s language.

The event was to unveil winners of a literary contest organised by the broadcast station.
Mr
Buhari is a Hausa man from Daura, an important Hausa city in Katsina.
Zahra’s mother, Aisha, is, however, a Fulani from Adamawa.

“I’ll
make you laugh,” Zahra, who is married to businessman Ahmed Indimi said,
when asked to make a comment at the ceremony officiated in Hausa.

She said she and her siblings rarely communicate in the language.

”Every day my father would correct my Hausa when I converse with him” she said in Hausa amidst laughter.

She said they usually communicate in “Engausa” a colloquial term for mixing of English and Hausa in a conversation.

She attributed her inability to speak good Hausa to attending schools with “children of white people.”

The
president’s daughter later told interviewers off stage that they mostly
speak in her mother’s native Fulfude language at home.
