Zahra Buhari: I Can’t Speak Hausa Fluently by bamoproperty: 8:10am On Oct 27, 2019
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.

Not surprising. Only very few Hausa kids speak excellent hausa, except in Kano

Possibly. Though, more likely to see fluent Hausa speaking kids in Kano.

Generals daughter and a londoner.. am not surprised one bit

Hanah buhari speaks like a british with thier accent and even calls her 75 year old father her baby... no regurlar northern kid would dare call his/her father baby

Buhari himself admited he cant speak Fulfude since his father died when he was a kid and grew up with his kanuri mother and he left Katsina since he was a teenager growing up with his in-laws at kaduna, joining army , training for years in india, ghana, UK and US and being posted to southwest

Hausa is not worth learning in the 21st century. It has no benefits abroad.

It's because they are not hausa. They are fulani that's why she can speak fulfude well.

Useless girl when did you become a havsa girl. You are few-lani by tribe and not havsa. And by the way do you need to learn havsa in order to Confront that little girl that Insults and Abused your mother. When will you and your Imbecil of a brother go and beat the hell out of that mamman daura's daughter. I'l listen to this your enghavsa when i hear in the news how you tore her Cloths into pieces and that she is icu at the hospital
