Presidential aide says Aisha Buhari travelled abroad for medical checkup



The Nigerian presidency has dismissed a report claiming that the First Lady, Aisha Buhari fled the country because of insecurity.

According to Leadership, an aide to the president’s wife, Kabiru Dodo disclosed that Aisha traveled abroad for a medical checkup.

Dodo made the disclosure in Jalingo, the Taraba state capital when he attended an event on behalf of the Foundation of the First Lady.

He said the wife of the president has no reason to run away over safety concerns, having been in Nigeria even when the country was experiencing problems of security prior to her husband’s administration.

The aide said:

“The First Lady travelled for her medical trip, she did not fled the country because of insecurity, she left her children, her husband and family in Nigeria, what people are saying is baseless and worth nothing to be considered.
“I want to tell the whole world that I do speak to her on daily basis and she is ready to return to the country as soon as she is done with the medical treatment abroad.”
