The wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, stopped campaigning for her husband because she is currently abroad for treatment of an undisclosed ailment, Concise News has learned.
Concerns have been raised as to her whereabouts after she led her campaign team to a rally in Kano state on 5 January.
But a presidency source told The Cable, an online newspaper, that Aisha has not been seen campaigning “because she is ill”.
“For about two weeks now, you will observe that the president’s wife has not been campaigning. She is ill and she has traveled abroad for treatment,” he said.
However, she will be back on Monday, according to the report.
Aisha had set up a 700-member team for Buhari’s reelection bid. During the inauguration of the team she had said, “It will operate as a sister body with necessary legwork and outreach and will mobilise women and youths across the country.”
Meanwhile, Suleiman Haruna, Aisha’s media aide, told The Cable that he did not have any comments regarding the President wife’s health.
“Honestly, honestly, I don’t have any comment on that. People have been calling me. I don’t have any comment on that,” he reportedly said.
