The Presidency has debunked speculations that First Lady, Aisha Buhari traveled out of the country for almost two months because of hidden conflict in Aso Villa.

The Director of Information to the First Lady, Mr Suleiman Haruna said the President’s wife is a free Nigerian and can travel anywhere she wants.

Haruna stated this during an interview with Sunday PUNCH while reacting to speculation about Aisha Buhari’s absence from Aso Villa.

He said, “It’s a free world and people have been speculating about everything in this country and it is allowed.

“She is a free Nigerian and does not work for the government. So, if she decides to stay somewhere in her village for two months or to go somewhere and stay for two months, why should it become a national issue?

“She is a free Nigerian and has absolute freedom to move round for however long she wants.”

He dismissed the alleged frequent brushes of the First Lady with some top administration officials, including the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr Abba Kyari as rumours.

“I am in shock when I hear all these things. I don’t believe in all these rumours about the President’s wife because they are not true.

“That is why, most times, the office does not bother to react to these speculations,”
