The First lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari has reportedly been flown to Dubai to treat a severe neck pain.
According to reports gathered, it was alleged that Mrs Aisha Buhari jetted out of the country during the Sallah holiday last week, after she complained of the neck pain about two weeks before she was flown abroad.
Aisha Buhar began go experience pain on her neck shortly after she returned to Abuja from a trip to Lagos in July where she had visited the wife of the former Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, who died of COVID-19 complications on June 25, 2020.
Confirming the report to The PUNCH, a top Presidential aide said,
The first lady started having severe neck pain during the 2019 Presidential electioneering.
And she sought treatment abroad afterwards.
However, recently the pain returned and was even worse than the first time. So, she was flown out last week. It was indeed a medical emergency.
When contacted on the telephone, Mrs. Buhari’s Spokesman, Aliyu Abdullah, said he was not aware if his principal was out of the country or not.
I have not been to the Villa for the last two weeks so I cannot say for sure if she is in the country or not. However, I can categorically tell you that there is no emergency, he said.
The President’s wife also travelled out of the country for several weeks last year to treat an undisclosed ailment.
