Her arrival in Abuja anytime from now will end all speculations about her status as the nation’s First Lady. Vicious rumour mongers claimed her husband was about to take a new wife and even went to the extent of designing invitation cards to the phantom wedding, which they said would have taken place on Friday.
When President Buhari attended the Jumat on Friday in the Villa and there was no wedding Fathia as they had falsely written, the rumours died down, assisted by a categorical denial by Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
Aisha left Nigeria in August for the Hajj. She did not return home and instead stayed away in London.
