Amid pregnancy rumours, the wife of the President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered all members of her staff to proceed on indefinite leave.

This was contained in a short terse statement posted on Aisha Buhari’s official Instagram handle (@aishambuhari), signed by Dr. Mohammed Kamal, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Office of the First Lady on Health and Development.

Kamal stated that official engagements and work will continue virtually.

“This serves to inform all staff that the office of the First Lady will be closed for the upcoming festive period of Christmas and New Year

“To this end, all staff are requested to proceed on leave, until further notice.

"Please note that official engagements and work can also continue virtually as it was done previously,” he said.

79 year-old Buhari was in Turkey with 50-year-old Aisha between December 16 and 19, 2021 when they attended the 3rd Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit.

Photos of the President’s wife released by the Presidency after the trip had sparked pregnancy rumours as she was pictured to have cradled what looked like a bump.

Sulaiman Haruna, an aide to Aisha Buhari, has however, denied rumours that the first lady is pregnant.

Haruna, Aisha’s spokesperson, in a chat with BBC Pidgin, said: “I can assure you 100 per cent that our first lady is perfectly okay.

“She is neither sick nor pregnant as some reports claim.

“Some of these reports are from mischief-makers who don’t mean well.

“You know, nowadays, people can tamper with photos.”
