Streak: @aishambuhari claims she doesn’t go with an escort, yet in the US in September and Brussels last October, she had a company
On no less than two events in July and October, 2016, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, spouse of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, ventured out to London with a vast company, a reality that negates her late claim that she just goes with her relatives. Taking after an investigative report by SaharaReporters itemizing how Mrs. Buhari and some top authorities in her better half’s legislature get unpredictable assets from the Nigerian High Commission in London, the First Lady’s office issued a response broadly distributed by Nigerian daily papers to debate our report. The announcement guaranteed that Mrs. Buhari just goes with individuals from her family.
In any case, two archives acquired by SaharaReporters demonstrate that in July 2016, Mrs. Buhari headed out to the UK with a nine-part appointment. Amid that trek, Mrs. Buhari had the High Commission pay for her ticket. Truth be told, she even wiped out her underlying outing driving the High Commission to bring about a punishment of £200. The cost connected with her visit incorporated the very late ticket buy by an individual from her designation that was not at first incorporated into the rundown sent to the High Commission.
Amid the July visit, Mrs. Buhari was planned to remain at the empty home of Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom. She was likewise anticipated that would go to different parts of the world while her company stayed in London for three weeks.
Another archive got by SaharaReporters demonstrates that Mrs. Buhari was in London in October 2016. Amid that excursion, the High Commission dispensed the total of £10,000 for costs, including an intricate VIP gathering on her landing in the air terminal. The update uncovered that the First Lady was reserved to get VIP treatment at Windsor Suites at Heathrow that cost £1,500 per traveler. She was then booked to go to an occasion in Brussels and different places before coming back to London. The occasion was generally reported in the media.
Photographs distributed by Saharareporters obviously demonstrated that no less than 10 Nigerian ladies, including spouses of a few state governors, went with Mrs. Buhari.
A few sources in London and Abuja told SaharaReporters that Mrs. Buhari has made a few treks to the UK since her better half’s initiation as President. In a few occurrences, the President’s Office asserted that private associations or people paid for Mrs. Buhari’s excursions.
