    who is scared to ask her of the president’s health and their communication. First Lady when was the last time you spoke with the president? can we see your call history? Can we.. really?

  • Bo Biz

    What? Aisha,aren’t you suppose to be by your sick husband’s bedside in London at this trying time, than abandoning him and jetting off to Saudi Arabia for whatever? Is our president not recuperating in London? Deserting your sick husband in London is a dereliction of spousal care and responsibilities,since you can pray to your god from anywhere,while tending to your husband’s physical,emotional,social and spiritual needs right there with him in London.
    Please go back to London by the next available flight to be with him,Nigerians with good conscience are all wishing him a very speedy recovery.

    • MaskedPhantom

      Did you forget that her place was in the kitchen and “other room” and not by the president’s side?

      • Bo Biz

        Wow !, Nigerians are very creative,but Saudi Arabia is neither her kitchen nor the other room.

  • Otile

    I am glad God gave the First Lady grace to attend the holy hajj, with this God will give her the strength to overcome the things to come. As she prays for us we pray for her too. May God bless the First Lady and her children.

    mrs aisha buhari; should stop associate with challenge leaders wife’ of whom are allege of issues that bordering on corruption and forgery’ that hostage the progress of Nigerians growth of development and increase the killing galore in the north east of the northern part of Nigeria that made the region backward and institutionalize corruption into the region as a means of lively hood and continued to dent the image of majority of the northern populace

  • Gary

    We are being treated to discordant tunes and signals on the status of the President.
    Rather than be at his side in London his wife goes on Lesser Hajj to Mecca. Then strangely returns home to Abuja to be received by a committee of women looking like they’re commiserating with a bereaved. And all talking about prayers for the President.
    Yet government officials maintain that Buhari is hale and hearty. Something’s wrong with this picture and it’s about time the people were told the true state of their President.

    • Otile

      I believe the First Lady more than the Imam’s cabinet. The Presidency and the cabinet know that once Imam is buried their political future is in tatters. In the maintime, the cabal and the frightened cabinet will like to give the impression that Imam is hale and hearty.

  • Oty


    Remember once upon a time a president also went to a lesser hajj and …

    The monkey game version two.

    Silly thought, she came to prepare the way for her husband’s return.

  • samG60

    What is all this nonsense? don’t these people think at all? I now understand why they wanted to keep her in the other room. The president has said he’s handing over to his vp, so I don’t see the need to want to hog the limelight when there’s another president in town even if only acting. In what capacity were they all going to receive her? as they’ve told us there’s no office of first lady and the president is also constitutionally off duty. I think this was all totally unnecessary, she should have stayed in the background until at least the president returned. No need for NTA, press, sycophants and all the drama.

    • Otile

      You got it wrong. Osibande is not the president, he is just acting. Don’t arrogate any plenipotentiary powers to him. If Osibande came out to run against Imam nobody would vote for him except perhaps his wife and daughter. We dare him to contest an election anywhere you see his a nonentity. If Imam dies in London now do you think the Fulanis will not sack him despite whatever the constitution says? Whether you believe it or not the Fulanis don’t see you as equal partners in the Nigerian stake.

      • aboki

        You can see them now commenting on issue that does not concern them instead of concerntrating in their BIAFRA REPUBLIC agenda.
        When Nigeria is lamenting and dissecting matters that affects the Nation they are no where to be found.
        I learnt a WAILER by named TONY OKONKWO was arrested at INDIA with Cocain

        • Otile

          What issues does not concern them, is the money not coming from SS SE, does Buhari and his people contribute anything to Nigerian forex? You are a bunch of parasites.

          • aboki

            Naji Otile!
            Despite that there are millions of Southerners more especially the OKOROS living peacefully in the NORTH and earnings their daily Abinci including you.

          • emmanuel

            You are mumu. Even your evil tribes men do not leave peacefully in the North. If Shettima is not arranging for blood to fow, It is Boohari or al-tufia.

    • Nwabude Nwachukwu

      Trust sycophants. They will live and regret their actions.

  • Eucharist

    We have been agitating for the president’s return.only for us to be wellcoming back the first lady. Hmmmm

    • Nwabude Nwachukwu

      Funny people. God will keep us safe till the end.

  • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

    Madam you are highly welcome, may God Almighty answer your prayers ,heal your husband and deliver Nigeria from misrule. Amen

  • Mizch

    Former president GEJ said it before he left Aso Rock- that president Buhari needed prayers more than himself. So we are praying, even for the wife who is left alone in the other room at her age. Should she not be at her hubby’s side to console him?

    Yar Adua saga, part 2

  • emmanuel

    Aisha is learning to walk the ropes. I did say that she was being smart when she said Buhari sorrounded himself with strange people that she only played a game of minds on Nigerians, so she can register as a trust worthy fellow that can lead. Thereafter, on elame Yoruba man said he would offer her VP position in 2019 in a political party that is less than the size of a village primary school.
    Same Aisha has began the visibility game again.
    We all know, Buhari would rather manage what is left of his death survival privately than return back to the rigours of office. Unfortunately, he got visited by two witches in the day time – too bad. Witches do their things in the night, but when they come calling during the day, they are usually ominous signs.
    I go rule Nigeria or blood go flow, now he don see power, na so im liver come fail am – Buhari is a technical adviser at the footbl viewing centre.
    We are watching the game play out on daily basis. In all, Nigeria would be worse for it.
    If Buhari likes he should come back in 2019, but we are better off he remains there and get booted out on May 29, 2019 by Aso Rock new landlord then

  • Angry Niaja

    This is totally out of order, what has the wives of service chiefs got to do with receiving Mrs Buhari, this is how they turn these women into Demi gods and they also start looting, remember not too long ago, EFCC discovered over 1billion naira, in Mrs Lara Amosun, ex Airforce Chief’s wife. I have never heard or know of any other country that allows this rubbish. These so called First Ladies need to be curtailed. Jonathan took hers to another level, and we were told by Buhari during his campaigning that he’d not have an office of the First Lady. Please enough of this wasteful and unconstitutional office. We voted Buhar, we don’t want any of their wives rubbing salt onto our faces as well.

  • Peter_Edo

    Hissssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ……………………….. Rubbish. Arrant rubbish!

    Of what economic or social importance is this story? With Nigerians dying of hunger and so called IDPs being bombed and poor Chibok girls used by these crooks to ride on to power, all they now do is cast aspersions at the sensibilities of the same people they claim to love. Who paid for this trip to Saudi Arabia? What did she go there to do? To pray or to bank Dollars and Pounds?

    Only in a country like Nigeria do you find such a brazen arrogation of power and influence by nonentities propped up by a warped system that permits just anybody to get to the corridors of power. This is nauseating to say the least. 1914 was a disaster and still is. A disaster of colossal proportion.

    No red lip sticks???

    • Gary

      Lip stick? In Islam it is Haram to wear lip stick when you are mourning a spouse.

    • Otile

      I guess the best venue for a man to get himself a beautiful Islamic girl is at hajj, there you see natural beauty without makeups.
