Nationwide Shock As Aisha Buhari Suffers The Worst International Disgrace And Embarrassment

Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has been unable to give proper account of her foreign trips, after a shocking revelation by online news platform, Sahara Reporters.

While putting up a defence, in reaction to an online news report, which accused her of abusing official privileges at the Nigerian High Commission, in London, Aisha, revealed that former Nigerian First Ladies, spent £32,000, as landing cost for private jets in the United Kingdom, UK.

In a statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Adebisi Olumide-Ajayi, the continuous publication of unfounded stories by the online news organisation against her, was becoming a great concern.

“Part of the wife of the President’s trips abroad, are for her NGO, which is not funded by the government, and it is not uncommon to have stopover in Britain, like any other country, as the case may be.

“VIP treatment is simple protocol for a personality of her status, which is done all over the world, and at no point was she offered anywhere else.

“The High Commission provided the lounge, and Hajiya Buhari was not involved in the transaction.

“This is even a far cry from the £32,000 expended in the past, as landing fees for private jets of former First Ladies,” She said.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Buhari has challenged the management of the online platform, to apologise to her, for what she described as ridiculous efforts to smear her name.

She said: “After our last rejoinder, we expected the paper to come out with concrete evidence of deliberate fraud, or abuse of privileges, or be bold enough to own up and apologise for such hazy and unsubstantiated report.”

The President’s wife explained that to her surprise, the news organisation rather came up with another conjecture of a purported internal memo within the Consulate, which has no direct link to her.

“The new accusation however, has still not been able to substantiate where Aisha Buhari, made any direct contact with the Commission for anything.

“The High Commission has its internal administrative procedure, and it’s not within the purview of the wife of the President to ask for diplomatic files,” she added.

The statement explained that: “the said memo showed little, or no knowledge of Her Excellency’s itinerary; proves the simple fact we earlier submitted, that she had no direct business with the Embassy, to warrant the accusation of waste or corruption, insinuated in the report.”

“Attending an International Women function with the Governors’ wives, couldn’t have been linked to the bogus allegation of corruption made by the report’s spurious headline earlier on, as these are approved trips.

“It will be to the credit of the media, to carry out a thorough check, if the so-called monies (£3,500) spent for whatever reason by the High Commission, has any direct link with Hajia Aisha Buhari,” the statement stated.
