Tue, Jun 6, 2017 | By publisher


AISHA Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has returned from London Tuesday, June 6, after visiting her ailing husband, who is receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness, her office said.

The president’s wife left for London, last week to “spend some time” with her ailing 74-year-old husband, who left Nigeria on May 7 for medical treatment.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has been formally acting as president.

Aisha Buhari thanked Osinbajo for his work and said her husband would return “soon… as he is recuperating fast,”without elaborating.

Before his latest trip, Buhari had previously spent about two months in London, capital of Britain, being treated for what he described as one of the worst illnesses of his life.

The Presidency has repeatedly rejected rumours that Buhari is terminally ill or even dead but refused to disclose his illness or what treatment he is having.
