The Ekiti State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has asked why the presidency is quiet on a purported visit of Aisha Buhari to USA.
According to statement released by its publicity secretary, Jackson Adebayo, PDP said “It is only in APC that wife of the most populous black nation in the world, would travel to the USA and no television station will report her departure and arrival.
“The question is, did she travel to USA or Qatar?
“The presidency is yet to Nigerians that Mrs. Aisha Buhari traveled to USA.
“Only a party of scammers like APC will celebrate photoshoped pictures as evidence of Aisha’s visit to USA.
“It is strange that wife of the president of Nigeria could travel to USA and purportedly attended events there without international television stations like CNN, Al jazeera, BBC, Sky News etc and local stations like Channels TV, NTA, AIT and others reporting it.
“Or are they still ‘editing’ the video clips?”
“As a party of responsible and discerning minds, PDP would have elected to ignore APC and allow the party the freedom to advertise its idiocy.
“Most importantly, Nigerians have witnessed more heinous forgeries from APC.
“One of them being pictorial claim that President Buhari with Kemi Fadojutimi on ‘All Eyes on Africa’ TV show in London.
“That interview was held in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
“All evidence shows that pictures of showing Aisha’s arrival at Dulles International Airport, Washington DC could have been taken at Doha International Airport, Qatar.
“The official websites of George Mason University and US Institute of Peace show nothing of Aisha Buhari’s visit to USA or in the two institutions.”
Two months ago, Ayo Fayose challenged “The president’s wife to visit the United States of America.
He said she should “Convince Nigerians that she was not the Aisha Buhari mentioned in the judgment convicting William Jefferson.
“It is on record that the president has visited USA three times and his wife did not travel with him.
“Equally, she ought to have visited USA last year September to chair a United Nations program.
“She sent wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki to represent her.
“Even the presidency has not told anyone that wife of the president traveled to the USA.”
PDP also remarked that they had “Seen pictures of Wife of the Senate President, Toyin Saraki with President Barrack Obama’s wife, Michelle.
We saw “Pictures of Mrs. Patience Jonathan with Michelle Obama when she visited the USA.
“Where are Aisha Buhari’s pictures with the First Lady of USA?
“Where are pictures of her and major government officials from the country?
“Or could she have arrived and departed from the USA like a spirit?
“It is even more important that nothing official has been said about the purported trip.
“Not from the President’s spokespersons,” PDP quipped.
