N500BN SIP: Aisha Buhari spoke out of ignorance - Uwais

The wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, returned to Nigeria on midnight of Saturday, after spending about three months abroad.

Aisha had left Nigeria in August to attend Hajj in Saudi Arabia. The religious programme ended on August 14.

While other Nigerians, including President Buhari, who travelled with the wife to Saudi Arabia, had since returned, Aisha travelled from there to London, United Kingdom and has remained there till Saturday when she announced in a tweet on her Twitter handle (@aishambuhari) that she was on her way back home.

She wrote: “Wife of the Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Mrs. Modupe Oguntade seeing me off. Thank you so much madam.”

Aisha’s return came on the heels of the husband’s rumoured marriage to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, as his second wife.
