An aide to Aisha Buhari, the first lady of Nigeria has dismissed claims that the wife of the president left Nigeria for Dubai over security reasons in the Presidential villa. 

The aide, Kabiru Dodo said the wife of the president went to Dubai for a medical checkup. 

 Dodo disclosed this while representing the first lady at the presentation of toiletries to widows through Mrs Buhari’s Future Assured Foundation in Jalingo, Taraba state on Sunday. 

Dodo said, “The First Lady travelled for her medical trip, she did not flee the country because of insecurity.

 “She left her children, her husband and family in Nigeria.

“What people are saying is baseless and worth nothing to be considered.

“I want to tell the whole world that I do speak to her on daily basis and she is ready to return to the country as soon as she is done with the medical treatment abroad.”

Recall that Sahara Reporters had on December 15 alleged that the first lady traveled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates since September because of insecurity in Aso Rock.

The online publication claimed that the first lady made her decision over a shooting incident which occurred in June and caused panic in the villa.
