A lot of reactions from Nigerians have continued to trail SaharaReporters’ exclusive report that First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has relocated to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates for over three months, citing insecurity at the Aso Rock Villa.
Most commentators knocked the First Lady for absconding from the country and lavishing taxpayers’ money on foreign trips. Many people wondered where average Nigerians who are daily facing the heat of insecurity should run to.
Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari.
SaharaReporters had on Tuesday reported that Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, had been in Dubai since September after the wedding of her daughter, Hanan, and she had therefore not been involved in any government activity.
The First Lady is not in a hurry to return, despite spending over three months, as she reportedly stated that the Aso Rock Villa was not secure for her family.
The security concern was fuelled a shooting incident which occurred in June and caused some panic among occupants of the Villa.
A top source told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that the First Lady had now relocated quietly to the UAE for over three months.

“Aisha Buhari has relocated quietly to Dubai. She has been travelling even before the daughter’s wedding. For three months now, she has been there. She cited insecurity in the Villa after that shooting incident,” the source had said.
On Twitter, many Nigerians expressed fears over the rising insecurity, wondering where else would be safe if Aso Rock Villa was not.
Aisha Buhari doesn’t feel safe at the Villa.. she had to relocate to Dubai. A First Lady that doesn’t feel safe in her own country. This country is messed up mehn… From one sad news to another.

Miliki first lady has travelled to enjoy herself at the expense of the taxpayers in the Country. If she travelled based on alleged insecurity in Aso Rock, what does she expect the citizens living in fear to say? It’s not her fault, blame those who voted for PMB in 2015 & 2019.

I sha know one day, one day, the truth would be revealed, as you can’t hide a thing forever. No doubt, something is fishy in that family. Perhaps the man we know is not really the man we think we know. Not too sure, but I know something is not adding up.

Samuel Oladipo @SamuelOladipo8 wonders why the first lady will leave the country when she is part of the problems of the country, “After setting the country on fire economically, security-wise etc. and causing human blood to flow like water and properties destroyed, relocation to a safe country with the South’s resources is their next move. The God of vengeance is alive to take vengeance and rain His anger like fire.”
Hmmm! After setting the country on fire economically, security wise etc & causing human blood to flow like water & properties destroyed, relocation to a safe country with d South resources is dr next move.The God of vengeance is alive to take vengeance & rain His anger like fire.
