Am assuming we have all heard some bits and pieces of the rumbling in Aso rock between Nigeria’s first lady, the alleged cabal and their kids. with so many bits of information flying around, lets help you put in all in perspective and make sense of recent events ….(because gossip is sweet like that)
June 14 2019-
I will now be referred to as the “first lady” and not “wife of the president”
This came as a surprise to many, throughout her husband’s first tenure, she was comfortable being the wife of the president, suddenly she claimed it was causing confusion with the other first ladies(State Governor’s wives)
In hindsight we could conclude she was making some effort to assert herself as the battle with the cabal raged on silently.
Ist week of August – Off to Hajj- Last public sightings… till recently
Late September – Where is Aisha Buhari?
She was absent during very notable functions in the country including the Hosting of Guinea President Alpha Conde in Daura for Eid El-Kabir celebrations, she was also missing in action at the 74th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
By late September, Nigerian press filed a missing persons report. Insiders in AsoRock began to speculate that the first lady left in protest after several unpleasant developments within Asorock .
Standard procedure is to get ahead of the story by releasing an official press statement stating her reasons for travel and due return date- but the silence from her inner circle and spokesteam is an indication that there was in fighting that lead to her leaving for London.
Early October- Wedding rumors
Wedding rumors started filtering out of Asovilla from the first week of october. Sadiya Umar Farouq who heads newly created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development was rumored to be his new bride and first lady
“VAR check”- She just recently took over from Osibanjo’s position at the Social Investment programme – as orchestrated by the cabal. this makes her the Cabal’s baby- they must have been grooming her for a bit
She is 44 , she is single, and the youngest person at the Federal executive council of Buhari’s cabinet. She DID NOT deny the wedding,- her fake account denied it leading her to clarify she had an impersonator
Sept 11th- A leaked Video and an E- wedding
On Friday 11th of October- A video of a woman shouting angrily at Aso Villa emerged
was it Aisha Buhari, was it a fake video? was the president’s wife locked up by the Cabal in some room at Aso rock? …. there were many speculations….
As speculations continued to mount, an E- wedding took place on Friday between President Buhari and Sadiya Umar Farouq. only social media users attended the wedding– (LOL)
October 13th Aisha Buhari’s returns – there is so much excitement
The first lady returned with a huge smile and mischievous glint in her face, you could tell she was really happy, There were airs of victory as her praise singers welcomed her shouting first lady- the excitement was palpable.
Observe: – The old woman praying fervently, it feels like they won lottery because she is back. This is not the first time she is travelling or going on a long trip- so why are they celebrating this much?
The plausible explanation? there was a wedding the cabal planned, but it did not happen- they failed- she won
It was me on the video
One of the many questions the press asked at her arrival was about the viral video- She responded somewhat mischievously-
It happened right in the presence of my security officers, but they failed to do anything about it because it was Mamman Daura’s daughter that videoed me.
October 14, 12:38pm – BBC Hausa interview with Aisha Buhari
Her interview with BBC indeed confirmed there was a failed attempt by the cabal to hitch the president with another wife.
One thing that really stood out to in her interview with BBC was that she refused to answer questions about her husband’s wedding- She said her husband and the woman in question are best positioned to respond to that considering that they are the ones involved.
she also said that but the woman in question did not come out to deny the marriage thing until after Friday when the marriage didn’t hold.
Oct 14, 4:00pm- We were afraid she will attack us – Fatima Daura
Fatima Daura decided to go out to the press and state her own side of the story-
she accused Aisha Buhari of violence, including throwing a chair and breaking the door- in her own words-
“So I recorded it to show our parents and the security, so that they will know the truth should anything happen. Because the way she was raging and shouting, I was thinking that she would pick something and hit us with it or something like that.
September 14 :9:09 pm- Aisha team claps back again
A member of her inner circle named Jaafar Umar Abba clapped back at fatima with a post titled – What Mamman Daura daughter Fatima did not say in her interview
The end –
If you made this far you like gossip, we all part of Nigeria’s problem. Side note- just imagine this happening with Maryam Babangida or Late Stella Obasanjo.
