First Lady Aisha Buhari will arrive Nigeria before dawn being that she’s now airborne for her return journey to Nigeria from London. She had kept a low profile for about two months, triggering all manner of speculations and rumours from Nigerians.
She tweeted her homeward journey on Saturday night, thanking Modupe Oguntade, the wife of Nigeria’s high commissioner in United Kingdom for seeing her off.
Her return anytime from now will end speculations about her status as President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife. Rumours were rife as people claimed her husband was about to take a new wife and even went to the extent of designing invitation cards to the phantom wedding, which they said should have taken place Friday.
When President Buhari attended the Jumat on Friday in the Villa and there was no wedding Fathia as they had falsely written, the rumours died down, assisted by a categorical denial by Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
Aisha left Nigeria in August for the Hajj in Saudi Arabia. She did not return home and instead stayed away in London fueling speculation of a rancour between her and her husband which may have been capitalized by their detractors.
