Nigeria’s First Lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari has denied reports making rounds in the media that she was ill and has been flown to –Dubai, United Arab Emirates for treatment.
Over the weekend, a Senior aide to the President’s wife, trashed claims that the First Lady’s alleged ill-health might have been caused by her visit to the widow of the former Oyo State, Mrs Florence Ajimobi, in Lagos, over a week ago.
Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity (Office of the First Lady), Aliyu Abdullahi, assured that there was no danger or emergency to the health condition of the First Lady.
Abdullahi said though he had not been in the State House for a while because work has been skeletal around there for a while, he was sure that the wife of the President was in no health crisis.
However, the spokesman could not affirm or deny that she might have traveled out of the country.
He stated: “I have not been around in the State House because the office has been operating skeletal operations since COVID-19 started and I didn’t get any information, but I was assured she is fine.
“There’s no danger, no emergency, no sickness, people just want to peddle fake news. I’m telling you, no emergency, no sickness.
“I’m not confirming or denying the travel, but what I know is that she’s not sick or any emergency because she went to Lagos to see Mrs Ajimobi and something happened there, there’s nothing like that”
