Aisha Buhari reportedly returns to Nigeria after six-month hiatus

Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has allegedly returned to Nigeria after several months of absence.

1st News had reported that the first lady has not been seen at public events since October 2020.

Aisha Buhari was said to have departed Nigeria after Hanan, one of her daughters, got married in September 2020.

The first lady has reportedly spent the last five months in Dubai.

While one source said she left the country for medical reasons; another said she went to spend some time with one of her daughters.

Amid reports that the first lady left the country, the presidency had not communicated to Nigerians why she left; and how long she was going to be away.

Aisha Buhari also stayed away from social media for months; and has had other people represent her at events.

The latest was on March 13 at the funeral of the late Benson Lulu-Briggs, oil magnate, where she was represented by the wife of Timipre Sylva, minister of state for petroleum resources.

Meanwhile, popular activist, Sunday Igboho has declared that the South West is no longer a part of Nigeria; even as he disclosed his determination for the creation of an Oduduwa Republic.

Igboho made this assertion in a stakeholders’ meeting on Thursday, March 18; while blaming the Fulanis for the problems bedevilling the polity.

According to Igboho, the Fulanis are in control of crucial sectors such as the ports authority.

He also reiterated the need to open the South-West borders in order to foster relations with neighbouring countries.
