Alhaji Muhammad Indimi, the sole Founder and Chairman of Oriental Energy is a distinguish and highly successful businessman and head of the powerful Indimi family from Northern Nigeria.
As an astute businessman with over 20 years’ experience in the Nigerian Upstream oil and gas sector, many wonder why this Billionaire businessman prefer his children to marry into Nigeria’s ruling class.
According to sources, the daughters of Mohammed Indimi have a history of marrying the male children of first families or former Heads of state.
An insider said that Indimi’s first daughter is married to Mohammed Abacha, son of the late military dictator, General Sani Abacha, who ruled Nigeria between 1994 and 1998.
Another of his daughters is married to the first son of former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), who coincidentally overthrew Buhari in a palace coup in 1985, when the latter was Nigeria’s military head of state.
Zahra, who is the youngest and most visible daughter of the current president, was next on their list before the wedding was postponed.
With an estimated wealth of over $670m, analysts believe some if not all their marriage to members of the ruling class are fixed to align both families’ commercial interests.
Others maybe for financial security and stability. But, one thing is for sure, the international businessman sure knows how to associate himself with the most powerful ruling bloc in Nigeria.
