COVID-19: Aisha Buhari Flown To Dubai For Medical Treatment

Published

on

Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has been flown to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), for medical treatment, according to Daily Trust .

The newspaper said Aisha suffered persistent neck pains after returning from a condolence visit to Florence Ajimobi, widow of a former governor of Oyo.

The first lady was said to have gone on 14 days isolation after visiting Ajimobi’s family in Lagos state.

However, after the isolation, the president’s wife reportedly continued to experience the pains, prompting the Dubai trip.

According to the report, the first lady is now in stable condition.

The first lady was last seen in public when she observed the Eid El-Kabir prayers with her family.

Pictures released at the time showed that the prayers were held in line with COVID-19 prevention guidelines.

The president and his family did not receive any guest during the celebrations.

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.
