Concerns have been raised as to her whereabouts after Aisha Buhari 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.

Aisha had set up a 700-member team for Buhari’s reelection bid and during the inauguration of the team.

However, on Sunday night at the presidential villa in Abuja, she held a meeting with the APC Women and Youths Presidential Campaign Team, which she said will operate as a sister body with necessary legwork and outreach and will mobilise women and youths across the country.

Her illness was kept away from the media as her office refused to comment on her whereabouts during the three-week absence.
