Wife of the President of the Federal Republic, Aisha Buhari, has reportedly been flown to Dubai, United Arab Emirates for urgent medical treatment.


Salient Times report that the First Lady was flown to the Middle Eastern country shortly after the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, upon her return from Lagos where she visited the grieving widow of former Oyo state Governor, Florence Ajimobi.


Mrs Buhari is said to have complained of severe neck pain upon her return, with all efforts to treat the pain at the Presidential Villa proving abortive, prompting the presidency to urgently fly her to Dubai for further examination.

The First Lady’s trip raises a few question marks, with particular reference to the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, which currently places a bar on international travel; this is not to mention the state of our indigenous medical facilities, which draws substantial figures from the national budget but is yet to curb the rate at which our political elite travel abroad for medical reasons.
