First Lady, Aisha Buhari has announced the graduation of one of her daughters, Aisha Hanan Buhari Jnr, with a first class degree.

What ought to be a celebration of brilliance and academic excellence with the First Family has been overshadowed by speculations as to where the younger Aisha graduated.

In her tweet on Tuesday night, Aisha edited out the school, but the photographs displayed and some of the people who attended, including the wife of the Nigerian High Commissioner in UK, clearly indicated that the graduation ceremony was held in UK.

Aisha Buhari also did not state Hanan’s course of study.

Congratulations to Hanan Buhari

    Hajia Hanan Buhari congratulations, my grease to your elbow,

  • Photography. That's as much as her brain could take her.

    I can hardly imagine that millions was spent on her just to study photography. Something she would definitely not practice as a profession.

    Just for bragging rights. I studied in UK university. That's it.

    What do I say. National cake. Easy money. Easy come. Easy go.

    I hope she comes back with a certificate at least.

    Photography ke? What a waste of national resources. What a confused and failed government.

    What a country. There was a country. What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.
