Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, reported travelled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, despite restriction on international flights, for the purpose of shopping luxury items in preparation for the wedding of her daughter, Hanan.
This is contrary to an earlier report that she had flown to Dubai during the Sallah break for an urgent medical treatment relating to a severe neck pain.
According to SaharaReporters, the First Lady actually flew to Dubai in a jet belonging to billionaire, Mohammed Indimi, to shop for luxury items in preparation for Hanan’s wedding.
It was gathered that President Buhari had met with the family of Hanan’s fiancée for further arrangements and other processes forming part of the occasion to be put in place before the wedding.
A reliable source disclosed that Mrs Buhari had travelled under the guise of health emergency so as not to raise eyebrows for violating government’s restriction on international flights due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
“It was well planned, her neck doctor is in London not Dubai. She travelled to shop for luxury items ahead of Hanan’s wedding.
“There is presently a ban on international flights by the government except it is essential, so the best way for her to travel was under the guise of medical treatment,” the source said.
KanyiDaily recalls that the Federal Government had on March 23, 2020 banned international commercial flights in order to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
