The wife of Nigeria’s President Aisha Buhari has said she’s not pregnant.
Recall that a photo of her bloated stomach surfaced online on Sunday leaving many with such conclusion.
Reacting through her media aide, Sulaiman Haruna, the President’s wife said she’s not pregnant.
Huruna spoke in a chat with BBC Pidgin.
She denied claims about the first lady being pregnant or sick.
“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,” he said.
Already, the President’s wife, Aisha, has ordered all her staff to proceed on indefinite leave, amid rumours that she is pregnant.
A statement on Tuesday from the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Health and Development Partners in the First Lady’s office, Mohammed Kamal, confirmed this.
Pictures of Buhari, 79, Aisha, 50, in Turkey between December 16 and 19, 2021 sparked pregnancy rumours, as she was pictured to have cradled what looked like a bump.
