Meet Amina Zakari, she claims no ancestry with Buhari.

Zakari is a princess of Jigawa State. She was born on June 23, 1960 to the late Emir of Kazaure, 

Hussaini Adamu. She completed her elementary education at Shekara Girls Primary School, Kano
 in 1971 and had her secondary education at Queens College, Lagos.

 Amina Bala Zakari was the former Acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Her appointment took effect from the directive of the President Muhammadu Buhari following the 

expiration of the tenure of her predecessor, Attahiru Jega on July 30, 2015. However, since her 

appointment, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has delved into captious publications, insisting

that she has a blood relationship with Buhari. Presidency yesterday refuted the allegation and 

noted that Buhari and Zakari do not share a family relationship. In a statement disclosed by the 

Senior Special Assistant to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Presidency averred that

 “An inter-marriage occurred in their extended families, so the imputation of blood relationship 

between the President and the electoral commissioner is a simple lie”.
