Nafisat Yar Adua is the daughter of late Nigerian President, Omaru Musa Yar Adua and is currently married a former governor of Bauchi State named Isa Yugudu.

Nafisat accepted to marry the former governor as a fourth wife.

This was after she declined the marriage proposal of Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote in 2009. sources say the excuse she gave for refusing to marry Mr. Dangote was that she was a friend to one of Mr. Dangote’s daughters, by name Halima Dangote. can report that Mr. Dangote married his first wife in 1977 and after that marriage failed, he looked for love in Nafisat by proposing to her in 2009, a proposal which was turned down.

Interestingly or coincidentally, Maryam Yar Adua and Zainab Yar Adua who happen to be the sisters of Nafisat Yar Adua also got married to ex-governors of different states in Nigeria. can report that the union between Isa Yugudu and Nafisat is blessed with four lovely children, three sons, and a daughter.
