Aisha Buhari rushed to hospital after a sudden fall
Nigeria’s First Lady Aisha Buhari has been rushed to an Abuja hospital after suffering a leg fracture from a fall last weekend.
According to DAILY NIGERIAN, sources said Aisha “fell down and suffered a leg fracture” but details of the incident leading to the injury were sketchy at the time of filing of the report. The name of the hospital where she was taken to was also not disclosed.
According to the report, the first lady was expected to host a wedding reception in honor of Bilkisu Rimi, the daughter of Nigerian Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Mohammed Rimi, on Sunday night at the Presidential Villa.
The Office of the First Lady did not respond to inquiries at the time of filing this report.
Aisha Buhari apologizes to Nigerians
In October, Aisha Buhari tendered an apology to Nigerians over the performance of her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari, and the ruling All Progressives Congress in government.
In her apology however, she carefully failed to admit that her husband’s administration had been a failure.
She made the apology during an exclusive interview with BBC Pidgin, saying that her reason for apologizing to Nigerians was because Buhari’s administration might have not performed to the satisfaction and expectations of Nigerians.
In the interview monitored by Sahara Reporters, the First Lady revealed that Nigerians had high expectations from the Buhari government but it was possible that the government fell short of the expectations, hence, her apologies.
Aisha Buhari 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.
