The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, left for London on Sunday to visit her husband who is on medical vacation.

According to a statement by her media aide, Mrs. Buhari “will convey to the President the best wishes of Nigerians and their fervent prayers for his quick recovery.”

“She is expected to stop over at Addis Ababa, to make a symbolic appearance at the meeting of the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) on Monday 3rd July, 2017.

“She 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, 3rd July, 2017.”

Mrs. Buhari’s return to London comes a few days after the controversial Ekiti State Governor‎, Ayo Fayose, claimed she was not allowed to see the President Muhammadu Buhari during her first visit.

While addressing journalists last week, Mr. Fayose alleged that the president was on life support. He said a cabal had surrounded the president and called for his resignation.

Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress has, however, said President Buhari was recovering and not on life support.

The president has been in London for over 50 days for medical treatment, although details and nature of his ill health have not been made public.

        So na here you come hide?

  • 0tile

    It is very shameful that the First Lady herself does not know what ails her husband. Is there any good reason why she is not allowed to stay in London with her husband until he comes back? Something nebulous must be going on in their marriage. Allah

    • Malik Isah

      Eeyah, she told you so yesterday

      • emmanuel

        If you dey think at all you nor go asm am. If your Papa dey sick, somebody go say your mama nor fit see am? Even if na Ebola, dem go kit her up to see am. She is not even staying in London, back here in Nigeria doing what? I beg dis una culture/religion/ crave for power is a complete aberration to human developmental ethics.
        E be like say Buhari don die sef. Forget all the robust recovering thing

          Eeyah, you get sense well well

  • Niger DELTA Arise

    Last week One Mrs Alakija (So called richest woman in Africa) who made all her monies from my Niger Delta oil well allocated to her by Northern crooked presidents splashed 5m Pounds on her son’s wedding. Whereas over 15 million Niger Deltan youths are unemployed and without basic amenities of life…and having to cope with their polluted environment. Time for Niger Delta to arise is now. Time to control our RESOURCE control is now.

    Resource control now!!!

    • William Norris

      LOL..stop hiding behind a computer and go pick up a gun. That’s the only way you’re getting your crude oil back

  • Niger DELTA Arise

    …and the Niger Delta oil money is what Nigeria is using to pay for Buhari’s bill, Aisha’s weekly trips to London and then for the Presidential Jet parked in London. Meanwhile, they say there is no money to start Maritime University in Delta state. My Niger Delta people, do you see what I see? Una go sit down dey look?

      In sickness or in health Muhamadu Buhari is the worst president Nigeria’s ever had –
      a mentally slow and sluggish creature with bare thinking ability and zero administrative
      skills who recklessly hoisted dilatoriness to mask his unsureness so as to pretend to
      some strategy. Buhari can’t run towards any goal because he can’t cut to the chase
      to take a very simple decision – not even a simple decision on naming his own
      Ministers, which took him all of five months, because he was just unable to
      sensibly analyze the connecting parts of a reality.

      “Education! Education! Education!
      President Buhari said in latter-day amazement, if not in confession, after he went through blood
      transfusion in London early this year, and saw young adults as part of the medical team which drew
      out the intellectual map of his undisclosed illness. To fit into the oversize role of president of Nigeria,
      Muhamadu Buhari took a crude path to cut the shoes to his own puny size, by reducing the job of
      president to that of a police constable running after neighbourhood thieves with a baton.
      As a result, Nigeria was utterly tethered to Buhari’s lack of knowledge and the country
      began to fail from then on; and, and falter badly on all fronts.

      • Sai Mama


        “I sympathise with Nigerians for voting Buhari. We have a president who doesn’t have a friend outside
        the North and that’s a tragedy. As I am talking to you, I am convinced that President Buhari’s presidency
        is dead. He may be physically alive and I wish him good health, but as far as governance is concerned,
        his presidency is dead and nothing can be done to resuscitate it. A presidency can be alive in terms of
        a leader, but in terms of programmes and achievements it can be dead and historically forgotten.

        Nigeria’s president must be a man who is nationally and internationally exposed, who appreciates people
        and feels comfortable with people no matter their religion or ethnic background. That’s not the case with
        Buhari. People he is comfortable with represents a tiny minority of Nigerians and as far as I am concerned,
        you don’t have to see yourself either as an Hausa man or a Moslem. There is going to be an election in
        2019 and if Buhari were to be in good health and contest, I am sure he will lose and if he attempts to rig
        the election, there will be violence in this country.”

    She better go see what is happening to her aza room mate. If una nor believe Fayose, Aisha believe am. She wan go confirm now. Afterall she get the man pass everybody.
    You cannot stop her from seeing her man before he packs up finally.
    That way, she can come back to begin her Villa evacuation, especially the Children Church at the Villa where she converted to her private Spa.
    Children, God don feel una, your place is in the path of restoration. You will worship God in the beauty of his Holiness!

    What next after Muhamadu Buhari?

    Once Muhamadu Buhari eventually quits office, at whatever time, federal boards must be dissolved;
    including N.T.A, FRCN, NCC, NNPC and NBC. President Buhari stuffed federal boards with invalid
    and mostly unthinking appointees. The result is utter mediocre performance all round. No federal
    agency is exceptional or seen to be working with any gumption.

    An immediate audit must follow and all indicted board members; chairmen and directors, must be
    convicted and sent to prison. That first step will send a strong signal to Nigerians and to the
    international community that a new and purposeful government has come on board after
    Muhamadu Buhari’s nonsense, laxity and messiness.

      “Democracy is defined as a government of the people, by the people and for the people,
      but what we had in the time of Jonathan was ‘greedocracy’ – which is government of the greedy,
      by the greedy and for the greedy. Today, under Muhamadu Buhari, we have ‘criminocracy’ –
      a government of the criminals, by the criminals and for the criminals. Wrong appointment
      led to the emergence of the former (suspended) Secretary to the Government of the
      Federation (SGF, Babachir Lawal) who became a grass-cutter”.

    “She is expected to stop over at Addis Ababa, to make a symbolic appearance at the meeting of the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) on Monday 3rd July, 2017.
    What makes her appearance symbolic or to rephrase, what is symbolic about her appearance ? Is she not going there as every other First lady ?

    So a presidents wife if truly she was allowed to see her husband cannot take a selfie picture or short video with her husband to show proof of life and quell all the noise and rumors of his death or incapacitation? a Nigerian president who sits down on all Nigeria’s monies and has access to the best medical care in UK and has been recovering robustly for 2 months as they have been lying would have been out of danger by now and be discharged to continue his recovery in Nigeria. THIS GOVERNMENT SHOULD STOP THE LIES AND DECEPTION, anyway the constitution is clear, 90 days and they must produce Buhari physically in Nigeria otherwise Osibanjo is president, till then let the cabal deceive, lie, steal all they want, their time is running.
