Ekiti PDP Questions Buhari’s Wife’s “US trip”, Slams APC

First Bank Nigeria

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.”
