Ekiti PDP questions Buhari's wife's “US trip”, slams APC

Listen to article

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has said that the

State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) comment on the

purported visit of the Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari to the

United States of America (USA) as a function of total ignorance and

mischief, saying; “Even the Presidency has not told anyone that wife

of the President travelled to the USA and in official communications,

only ignorant and mischief makers in the APC will belief that a trip

to the USA will be made by Mrs Buhari and Nigerians will only get to

know about it through online media.”
The PDP, which said it would have ignored the APC and allowed those in

the party to continue to wallop in their self-deceit, added that “it

is only in the world of the APC that wife of the President of Nigeria,

the most populous black nation in the world would travel to the USA,

ostensibly to debunk her involvement in a major scam and no television

station will report her departure and arrival. The question is, did

she travel to USA or Qatar?”
In a statement issued on Monday by the State Publicity Secretary of

the PDP, Mr Jackson Adebayo, the party said; “If the Presidency has

not been bold enough to tell Nigerians that Mrs Aisha Buhari travelled

to the USA on official visit, only a party of scammers like the APC

will go on the rooftops to celebrate photoshoped pictures as evidence

of visit to USA.”
The party said “it is strange that wife of the President of Nigeria

could travel to the USA and purportedly attended events there without

international television stations like CNN, Al jazeera, BBC, Sky News

etc and local stations like Channels TV, NTA, AIT and others reporting

it. Or are they still 'editing' the video clips?”
While casting doubt at the purported trip, the PDP said: “Even if Mrs

Aisha Buhari actually travelled to the USA, does that erase the fact

that in the judgment delivered by the United State District Court,

Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, USA, in criminal No

1: 07CR209, that indicted the USA Congressman, Williams Jefferson, it

was mentioned that $170,000 was transferred from account in Nigeria in

the name of Aisha Buhari to an account in the name of The ANJ Group,

LLC, identifying William Jefferson as beneficiary?”

The statement read further; “As a party of responsible and discerning

minds, the PDP in Ekiti State would have elected to ignore the APC and

allow the party the freedom to advertise it idiocy. This is more so

that the matter is now a subject of litigation and the no one has

denied the existence of the judgment that indicted Williams Jefferson

and featured conspicuously at page 22, the name of Aisha Buhari as

having transferred $170,000 from account in Nigeria to William

“Most importantly, Nigerians have witnessed more heinous forgeries

from the APC, one of them being pictorial claim that President Buhari

(as APC presidential candidate then) had an interview with Kemi

Fadojutimi on 'All Eyes on Africa' TV show in London, whereas the

interview was held in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

“However, it is important to point out that from all evidences, the

pictures circulated as arrival of President Buhari's wife at Dulles

International Airport, Washington DC could have been taken at the Doha

International Airport, Qatar. Even on the official website of George

Mason University and US Institute of Peace, USA where the president's

was said to have attended events, there is nothing to show that she

attended any event in the two institutions.
“We have seen pictures of Wife of the Senate President, Toyin Saraki

with President Barrack Obama's wife, Michelle. We also saw pictures of

Mrs Patience Jonathan with Michelle Obama when she visited the USA.

Where are Aisha Buhari's pictures with the First Lady of USA and major

government officials from the country? Or could she have arrived and

departed from the USA like a spirit?”
“It is even more important that nothing official has been said about

the purported trip. Not from the President's spokespersons.”
