Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, was rushed to an Abuja hospital over the weekend after suffering a leg fracture.
According to sources, Aisha “fell down and suffered a leg fracture,” but details of the incident leading to the injury were sketchy at the time the report was filed. The name of the hospital to which she was taken was also withheld.
According to the report, the first lady was set to host a wedding reception at the Presidential Villa on Sunday night in honor of Bilkisu Rimi, the daughter of Nigerian Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Mohammed Rimi.
The First Lady’s Office did not respond to inquiries at the time the report was filed.
In October, Aisha apologized to Nigerians for her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari, and the ruling All Progressives Congress’s performance in office.
Aisha, on the other hand, carefully avoided admitting that her husband’s administration had been a failure.
Aisha made the apology during an exclusive interview with BBC Pidgin, explaining that she was apologizing to Nigerians because Buhari’s administration may not have met their expectations.
In the interview, the First Lady stated that Nigerians had high expectations of the Buhari administration, but that it was possible that the administration fell short of those expectations, thus her apologies.
She said, “The expectation on us was too high. People were expecting so much from us, and maybe after seven years, we haven’t done to their expectations. Only God knows what is in somebody’s mind or as a human being, you cannot say that you are right or we have done what we should do.
“The government has really tried. The administration has done its best but maybe it is still not the best for others. To them, they have done their best, only God knows, so we must apologise to them, to Nigerians; whether we have made up their expectations or not.”
