Mrs Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday, left the shores of the country to London to see her husband, who has been away for nearly two months for medical treatment.
The Nigerian First Lady is travelling to the United Kingdom about three weeks after she made a similar trip to see her husband.
When she returned then, she claimed her husband was doing fine and was recuperating fast. But reports later emanated that while in London, she was not allowed by the cabal to see the President.
Last week, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, an unrepentant critic of Mr Buhari, claimed the President was on a life support machine, a claim the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) refuted.
A statement issued on Sunday by Mrs Buhari’s media aide said the First Lady is “expected to stop over at Addis Ababa, to make a symbolic appearance at the meeting of the Organization of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) on Monday, July 3, 2017.”
The statement, signed by Suleiman Haruna, Director of Information at the Office of the wife of the President, said further that Mrs Buhari will “join other members to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the organisation and use the opportunity to reiterate the voting rights of Nigeria in the upcoming elections of the organisation.”
“She will continue her journey to the United Kingdom on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 and will convey to the President the best wishes of Nigerians and their fervent prayers for his quick recovery,” Haruna added.
This Friday, it would be exactly two months Mr Buhari left Nigeria for London for “follow up treatment.”
