The naming ceremony of president Buhari's grandson, Zayyad took place in Istanbul, Turkey.

The naming ceremony which witnessed a lavish display of wealth was attended by family members and dignitaries from different nationalities.

In the video circulating online, the naming ceremony was quite an elaborate event as one could easily mistake it for a wedding ceremony.

Buhari's daughter Hanan Buhari, a graduate of digital photography and Mohammed Turadu tied the knot back in September 2020 and welcomed their son in March 2022.

Hanan’s husband Mohammed Turadu is the son of a former lawmaker, Mahmud Sani Sha’aban, who was a member of the House of Representatives and a friend of President Buhari.

Their wedding ceremony was historic as it was the first-ever wedding ceremony held inside the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.

The video has sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians and some have taken to social media to express their opinions about the lavish display of wealth while the country is going through an economic crisis.
