SWITZERLAND, DECEMBER 02 – Despite rumours of a rift in their marriage, president Muhammadu Buhari and his wife, Aisha are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary on Monday, December 02.
The president tweeted on Monday morning:
“Today, on our 30th Wedding Anniversary, I pray for Allah’s continued peace and blessings in our home and family.”
The first lady, Aisha Buhari also tweeted:
“Alhamdulillah for 30yrs of togetherness.”
The president’s marriage has been rattled by a conflict between members of his extended family and his wife which precipitated rumours that the president was marrying another wife.
In October 2019, Fatima Daura the daughter of Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura accused Aisha of verbally abusing her and attacking her family. Fatima recorded a video of Aisha ranting inside the presidential villa in Abuja and submitted the video to the press. Fatima Daura said she recorded the video because no one would have believed her if she made those claims without evidence.
