Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, will travel to the city of Colorado USA on June 30,2016 to attend first world ladies conference.
This will permanently put to rest the argument of her arrest by Nigerians who has demanded she visits the United so as to permanently lay to arrest Governor Ayodele Fasyose’s claim of her involvment in William Jefferson trial.
The travel plan was announced by the All Progressives Congress, APC Niger state chapter. The news reads in part: “Mrs Buhari is to attend the World First Lady Conference during her visit.”
Aisha Buhari has been at the center of an accusation fueled by Governor of Ekiti State. The former boss of EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, defended Aisha.
According to Ribadu, “The Aisha Buhari mentioned in the bribery scandal of a former United States congressman, William Jefferson, was an impostor who was peddling influence with the name of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“She is a different person and has lived in the U.S. for years. She is hardly in Nigeria.
“The EFCC was working with U.S. authorities on the investigations. One of my plans was to arrest her before I left the commission. Our suspicion then was that she was using the Buhari name for influence.
“The EFCC laid ambush to see if she would come into the country so she could be arrested. I didn’t know what happened to the plan to arrest her after I left,” he stated.
So all eyes will be on the watch to see how the First Ladies’ conference in Colorado will go down.
