PDP Says Aisha Buhari Didn’t Go to US, She Went to Qatar




The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has accused
the state’s All Progressives Congress of ignorance and
mischief over its comment on the purported visit of the
Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, to the United
States of America.
The party noted that even the Presidency had not told
anyone that the wife of the President travelled to the USA.
The APC had in a statement on Sunday said the eventual
travelling of Mrs. Buhari to the United States had exposed
Governor Ayodele Fayose as a “shameless liar.”
However, in a statement issued on Monday by its state
Publicity Secretary, Mr. Jackson Adebayo, the PDP, which
said it would have ignored the APC and allowed those in the
party to continue to wallow in their self-deceit, wondered
why no television station reported her departure and
arrival.
He said, “The question is, did she travel to USA or Qatar? If
the Presidency has not been bold enough to tell Nigerians
that Mrs. Aisha Buhari travelled to the USA on official visit,
only a party of scammers like the APC will go on the
rooftops to celebrate photoshoped pictures as evidence of
visit to USA.
While casting doubt at the trip, the PDP said Mrs. Buhari
purported trip to the US did not erase the fact that her
name was mentioned in the judgment delivered by the US
District Court, Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria
Division, USA, in criminal No 1: 07CR209, that indicted the
USA Congressman, Williams Jefferson.
The statement added, “Most importantly, Nigerians have
witnessed more heinous forgeries from the APC, one of
them being pictorial claim that President Buhari (as the
APC presidential candidate then) had an interview with
Kemi Fadojutimi on ‘All Eyes on Africa’ TV show in London,
whereas the interview was held in Transcorp Hilton Hotel,
Abuja.
“However, it is important to point out that from all
evidences, the pictures circulated as arrival of President
Buhari’s wife at Dulles International Airport, Washington
DC could have been taken at the Doha International
Airport, Qatar. Even on the official website of George
Mason University and US Institute of Peace, USA where the
President’s wife was said to have attended events, there is
nothing to show that she attended any event in the two
institutions.
“We have seen pictures of Wife of the Senate President,
Toyin Saraki with President Barrack Obama’s wife,
Michelle. We also saw pictures of Mrs. Patience Jonathan
with Michelle Obama when she visited the USA. Where are
Aisha Buhari’s pictures with the First Lady of USA and
major government officials from the country? Or could she
have arrived and departed from the USA like a spirit?
