Aisha Buhari Leaves For London To See Ailing President

Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari left for London the United Kingdom on Sunday to visit her husband.

She will convey to the President the best wishes of Nigerians and their fervent prayers for his quick recovery, a statement from her office Sunday evening.

“She is expected to stop over at Addis Ababa, to make a symbolic appearance at the meeting of the Organization of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) on Monday 3rd July, 2017. She will join other members to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the organization, and use the opportunity to reiterate the voting rights of Nigeria in the upcoming elections of the organization.”

“She will continue her journey to the United Kingdom on Tuesday, 3rd July, 2017.”

President Buhari left the country in May to continue his medical leave at an unknown facility in the United Kingdom.


The cause of his illness is unclear but a statement from the Presidency said there was “no cause for worry” and that the length of his London stay would depend on advice from doctors.

Buhari missed three weekly cabinet meetings and he spent about six weeks in London on medical leave earlier this year, later admitting that he had never been as sick in his life.
