Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari has finally spoken on the rumoured problem between her and her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mrs Buhari denied there was any rancour between her and the President which forced her to stay away from the country for an unusually extended period. She told the Nigerian Television Authority shortly after she returned to Abuja around 5 am on Sunday morning that she was in the United Kingdom to be with her children. She said she also saw her doctors while she was there, adding that she has always travelled out for vacation for six weeks every year. This, she said, was nothing unusual.
Mrs Buhari arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja via a British Airways flight. It will be recalled that last week, Reports of the President’s rumoured ‘second marriage’ to Sadiya Umar Farouq, Nigeria’s minister of Humanitarian Affairs generated a lot of Controversy.
