Aisha Buhari gives reason for protracted holiday


Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, says she was away from Nigeria for almost two months because she was attending to her health.

Mrs Buhari disclosed this in an interview on Sunday shortly after she arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

She explained that she was well now but still needed more rest.

“I have taken my holiday for this year and it happened that after the holiday, I needed to attend to my health before going to Saudi.

“When I went to Saudi, based on doctor’s instruction, I went back to the UK.

“I am well now but still, I need more rest.”

The first lady’s return follows speculations of a planned wedding between her husband and Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster and Management, Sadiya Umar Farouq.

The minister has however debunked the reports.

Reacting on her official Twitter handle, Farouq said; “There have been several speculations in media regarding Marriage between Myself and Baba Buhari.

“I will like to clarify this, that me and Baba Buhari have been old-time friends and Her Excellency Aisha is my good friend and a sister. I will like to maintain this good relationship.

“Dear Nigerians, please Kindly ignore all rumors as this is not true. We’re currently completely focused on making sure we have a better Nigeria. Let’s continue to pray for our dear country Nigeria. God Bless.”
