Why would the wife of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, do this to her loving husband?
To even think that they are now grandparents, why would she want to hurt everyone? To even think the photo was shared on the micro blogging site, Twitter?
Well, Hajia Hadiza Isma el-Rufai has decided to make many laugh as she shared a throwback photo of ‘herself and boyfriend’.
She just shared a throwback photo and captioned it, “My (then) boyfriend and I”
The ‘boyfriend’ on a closer look was her then boyfriend, Nasir el-rufai!
Wearing a white safari, he had his arms around his girlfriend as they posed for photos.
That’s Hajia Isma for you—witty and quite creative in her submissions.
She met Nasir in 1976 at the Kaduna School of Basic Studies. Both went to Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria where she studied Architecture and El-Rufai read Quantity Surveying.
They got married in 1985.
She has a BSc and MSc in Architecture (1983) and an MBA (1992) from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, as well as a Masters in Creative Writing (2012) from Bath Spa University, United Kingdom.
She once worked as a lecturer at the Department of Architecture at Kaduna Polytechnic. She also worked for a few years at the National Electric Power Authority, before venturing into private practice, before working in private practice. She now runs Yasmin El-Rufai Foundation, set up to honour their daughter, who died in 2001.
She has also written a book ‘An abundance of Scorpions”, described by Helon Habila as “a heartbreaking tale of loss and an uplifting story of a woman’s strength and determination”
