Aisha @ 50: No Birthday Wishes From Buhari, Aides As First Lady Marks Golden Jubilee

The silence across the social media pages of President Muhammadu Buhari and those of his aides has created more room for speculations about alleged disagreements in the First Family. Aisha Buhari had clocked 50 years on Wednesday and no birthday wish from President Buhari or his aides was posted on social media.

With exception to the Vice President’s wife, Dolapo Osinbajo, who sent birthday wishes to the First Lady on social media, members of the Presidency were quiet about Mrs. Buhari’s birthday.

Aisha had likewise failed to send a birthday wish to President Buhari when he clocked 78 years on December 17, 2020.

Meanwhile, the seeming disagreement between Buhari and Aisha came to the public’s notice after a popular news website reported that the First Lady had allegedly relocated to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, over disagreement with the President and his aides.

Some Nigerians, on Wednesday, took to social media to ask about the whereabouts of the First Lady, while congratulating her for attaining golden jubilee.

One Twitter user (@DialaObioma) said: “Where is Aisha Buhari, the first lady of Nigeria? Today is her birthday and since she packed out of Aso Rock with the excuse of insecurity in the country, she’s nowhere to be found and Nigerians are not asking questions.”

Another user (@iykimo) tweeted: “Today is Aisha Buhari ‘s birthday? Is she back? Happy birthday to the Mother of a new Nigeria.”

@NicestSampson also asked: “Did President Buhari forget his wife’s birthday? Aisha Buhari should be marking her 50th birthday today. @MBuhari @NGRPresident @NigeriaGov Is everything okay in Aso Rock?”
