Mrs. Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled her planned trip to the US for the World First Ladies Conference holding at Colorado, NewsDay says.
The media director in the Office of the Wife of the President, Zakari Nadabo, who announced the cancellation of the US trip, said Aisha chose to perform the lesser hajj instead. No reason was given for the cancellation.
Many hoped Aisha would use the US visit to arrest controversies surrounding her name in the Halliburton bribery scandal.
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State had claimed that Aisha Buhari has been avoiding the United States because of her alleged involvement in the scandal.
