Sulaiman Haruna, the aide to Aisha Buhari, has denied rumours that the Nigeria’s First Lady is pregnant.
Benco news notes that photos of Aisha have been in circulation on social media in connection with insinuations that she is pregnant.
The photos had surfaced after the first lady landed in Abuja on her return from the Turkey-Africa summit which she had attended with her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Amid the pregnancy rumours, insinuations also flooded social media that the first lady was suffering an ailment.
However, in a chat with BBC Pidgin, Haruna denied the claims while stating that the first lady is “perfectly fine”.
He said: “I can assure you 100 percent that our first lady is perfectly okay. She is neither sick nor pregnant as some reports claim.
“Some of these reports are from mischief makers who don’t mean well. You know, nowadays, people can tamper with photos.”
Buhari got married to Aisha, 50, in December 1989. The union has so far been blessed with five children. In 2019, the couple celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary.
