Aisha Buhari in London to Check on Buhari's health



From: AIDOGHIE PAULINUS, Abuja

Against media reports that the First Lady, Aisha
Buhari, no longer has access to her husband,
President Muhammadu Buhari, as a result of
the perceived secrecy surrounding the
President’s ill-health, the Daily Sun can
authoritatively report that the First Lady is
currently with the President in Abuja House,
London.

Recall that President Buhari left Nigeria for
London on Sunday, May 7, 2017, to attend to
health challenges, having earlier made a
similar trip to London and upon arrival in
Nigeria, stated that he was going to return to
London at a later date.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and
Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, had before the
President’s departure for London, in May,
stated on his twitter handle that the President
was going on a medical follow-up, saying that
the length of the president’s stay away was to
be determined by his London doctors.

A very competent presidency source told Daily
Sun that Aisha is currently with President
Buhari in Abuja House, London.
The source said Aisha “visited the President
two weeks ago and is currently with the
President.”
The source also dismissed insinuations that the
President is suffering from memory loss,
saying the President is responding to
treatment.

While stating that no specific date has been
slated for the President’s return, the source
said the President’s return “would strictly be
on the orders of his doctors.”
The source added: “Keeping the arrival date of
the President secret is because of noise and
exposure.”

Probed further about the veracity that the
First Lady no longer has access to the
President, the source said: “It is not possible
for a wife not to see her husband.
“The information is bandied around by people
trying to tarnish the image of the First Lady.”

While saying that the First Lady was sad to see
people wishing her husband dead, the source
however said the First Lady was living up to
her challenges and doing her best.
“Anybody can be sick. But it is very
unfortunate to see people wishing your
husband dead,” the source concluded.
