£49K for trips to London: Angry Aisha Buhari Reacts


Press Release:

AISHA BUHARI’s Linkage to an Alleged Bleeding of Nigerian High Commission
in London: A Travesty of Investigative Journalism .

The attention of the Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari has been drawn
to a report in Sahara Reporters where, she was amongst other things accused
of abuse of privileges at Nigerian High Commission in London.

It is not in her interest to join issues with anyone or defend others
mentioned in the report, it is however paramount to put the record in proper
perspectives as its concern her trips to UK vis-à-vis the Nigerian High
Commission in London.

Aisha Buhari has never traveled to London with a large entourage as was
carried in the report. The highest number of people on a trip involves her
three kids, ADC, and her personal physician.

The Nigerian Commission in London has never offered any favor either
monetarily or materially to her or her so called entourage on any of her
trips to London.

The state house in Abuja caters for her meal when necessary, and other
healthy food or variety needed by her children are her personal

It is on record that the Nigerian Commission in London does not receive Aisha
Buhari at the airport with any official distinction or privileges as was
accorded other first ladies before her

Her drivers are privately arranged without any recourse to the embassy for

She has never complained or raised dust about any of these acts by the High
Commission because of the understanding, as clearly spelt out and practiced
by her husband, that public office must be separated from the private lives
of the occupants.

She has always been an advocate of good governance where officials of
government are responsive and appealing to their constituents, it therefore
baffles the imagination that one could believe she would corroborate with
any government official however highly placed either at home or abroad to
shortchange the Nigerian people.

These records are not hidden for a non-mischievous reporter who really
intends to inform the people and not to disparage the family of the President
just to add weight to a report.

Aisha Buhari would have ignored this, like all of such baseless accusations,
but the angle to which the report was presented has a corruption and abuse of
privileges connotation which negates the fundamental principle upon which
this administration thrives.
Consequently, Sahara reporter or any of the embassy staff is hereby
challenged to provide any concrete evidence either in hard or soft copy to
contradict Aisha’s Buhari’s position as it concerns her trips to London.
Sahara reporter should take the challenge and come out with the true version
in relation to Aisha Buhari if not for her reputation and that of her family,
but for the sake of good Nigerians who deserve to know the truth at all
