A man, identified as Yahuza Ibrahim, popularly known as Niga, a native of Jibia Local Government Area of Katsina State, has renamed his six-year old daughter, whom he named after President Muhammadu Buhari, from ‘Buhariyya’ to ‘Kausar’.
The renaming ceremony, which was said to have taken place in the early hours of yesterday in Jibia town, attracted many people who converged on Ibrahim’s house to witness the epoch-making event.
When asked of the motive behind renaming his daughter, he claimed that failure to fulfil all campaign promises made by the Buhari-led administration under All Progressives Congress, (APC), from 2015 to date was the sole reason for his action.
Yahuza Ibrahim was quoted as saying, “I was a diehard fan of President Muhammadu Buhari before and after he won the 2015 election, because of his honesty and integrity. To strengthen the love I have for him, I made a promise that whenever my wife safely delivers; I will name the child after Buhari if he is a boy, but if she is a girl; she will be called Buhariyya.
“I have fulfilled my promise when my wife eventually delivered a bouncing baby girl in 2015 by naming the newborn as Buhariyya”.
He said that after more than six years now since President Buhari came to power, there is nothing to write home about, hence his decision to rename his daughter.
Yahuza Ibrahim also claimed that he delayed enrolling the former Buhari’s namesake into public primary school, due to the plan he has of changing his daughter’s name to Kausar.
