I Feed My Children with my Personal Money Despite living in Aso Rock – Aisha Buhari

Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has said she feeds her children with her personal money. And that the State House, Abuja caters for her welfare only when it was necessary.

According to Aisha, she had not been accorded the official privileges given to her predecessors as the Fist Lady of the country.
Mrs. Buhari’s claims are contained in a reply by her media aide, Adebisi Ajayi released on Friday to address an accusation of abuse of privileges at Nigerian High Commission in London leveled against her by Sahara Reporters, an online media apparently on her trip to the United Kingdom recently.

Mrs. Buhari therefore challenged the online reporters to show evidence of their report to disproof her claims.

The rejoinder read thus:

“The attention of the Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari has been drawn to a report in Sahara Reporters where, she was amongst other things accused of abuse of privileges at Nigerian High Commission in London. “It is not in her interest to join issues with anyone or defend others mentioned in the report, it is however paramount to put the record in proper perspectives as it concerns her trips to UK vis-à-vis the Nigerian High Commission in London.

“Aisha Buhari has never traveled to London with a large entourage as was carried in the report. The highest number of people on a trip involves her three kids, ADC, and her personal physician. “The Nigerian Commission in London has never offered any favor either monetarily or materially to her or her so called entourage on any of her trips to London. “The state house in Abuja caters for her meal when necessary, and other healthy food or variety needed by her children are her personal responsibility. -

“It is on record that the Nigerian Commission in London does not receive Aisha Buhari at the airport with any official distinction or privileges as was accorded other first ladies before her. “Her drivers are privately arranged without any recourse to the embassy for staff.
