By Akeem Oyetunji, IBADAN Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari has departed London, the United Kingdom for home.
Mrs Modupe Oguntade, Wife of the Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK, saw her off Saturday night at the airport in London.
Mrs Buhari confirmed her departure via her verified Twitter handle with a picture showing her and the Wife of the High Commissioner.
“Wife of the Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Mrs Modupe Oguntade seeing me off. Thank you so much madam,” Mrs Buhari tweeted the picture.
Prompt News Online recalls that the First Lady had not been in public in the last three months.
She went to Saudi Arabia in August with her husband to perform the 2019 Hajj rites.
But, rather than returning to Nigeria, she left for London and had not been in public since then.
However, she has been very active on Twitter. Mrs Buhari tweeted on October 1, during Nigeria’s 59th Independence Anniversary, restating her resolve to touch more lives.
Also, she retweeted a tweet by #BBCAfricaEye which uncovered #SexForGrades at the University of Lagos in a documentary video that has gone viral.
The First Lady’s last tweet was barely 36 hours ago in which she joined “millions of girls around the world to celebrate this year’s international day of the girl child.”
Prompt News Online reports that in the last few days, there has been rumour that President Buhari was planning to marry one of his Ministers, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouk, who is the Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
Meanwhile, the Presidency has not reacted to the ‘wedding rumour’ which is trending on social media.
