Aisha Buhari cautions Nigerians against spreading fake news

The First Lady, Aisha Buhari, on Sunday cautioned Nigerians on the dangers of spreading fake news.
Hajia Buhari gave the warning while fielding questions from journalists shortly after her arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja in the early hours of Sunday from a medical leave in the United kingdom.

The First Lady was received at the Airport by the wife of the Kogi State Governor, Rashida Bello; Senior Special Assistant to the President (Administration), Dr. Hajo Sani; and wife of former Governor of Nasarawa State, Mairo Al-Makura, among others.

She expressed gratitude to almighty God for journey mercy back to Nigeria from the United Kingdom after a medical was advised by her doctor.

Hajia Buhari said: “It has been a tradition for us.

“For like 20 to 27 years now, if our children are on holiday, we used to spend holiday with them.
“I never abandon my children and last year, I went to Spain and spent two months with Zahra when she gave birth.

“So, the same this year’s holiday in UK.

“I fell sick so, I stayed back to see a doctor and the doctor advised me to stay back to attend to my health.

“From the UK, I travelled to Saudi Arabia for Hajj and returned to England on doctor’s advice and they also advised that I should slow down my activities.”


Hajia Buhari expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for approving some Special Assistants to her office to assist her to achieve the mission of improving the lives and wellbeing of women and children in Nigeria.

The First Lady cautioned Nigerians against spreading fake news, saying it does no good to anyone and urged relevant stakeholders to make efforts to stem the act.

She said: “The genesis of this fake news started when my husband fell sick and perpetrators of this act were showing fake ambulance, hospital and dead body suggesting that my husband is dead.
“That time, I received so many calls from other First Ladies and Presidents of other countries to confirm.

“So I called the attention of Nigeria Communications Commission, National Broadcasting Commission and the National Orientation Agency.
“Fake news will lead this country to something else if actions are not taken with immediate effect.”
