We’ve no fraud information on Nigerian first lady, Aisha Buhari – United States

The United States government says it has no information on the alleged crimes committed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha.


The acting Public Affairs Officer, US Consulate General, Lagos, Frank Sellin, said this in an email sent to our correspondent on Tuesday.

Sellin said this in response to an enquiry made by News men regarding allegations that the President’s wife was wanted in the US and was avoiding travelling to the country.

In a message, Sellin said, “Thank you for the inquiry. We have no information to provide on this matter.”

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, had, last month, alleged that Mrs. Buhari was involved in the $185m Halliburton scandal.

While reacting to the freezing of his Zenith Bank accounts by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Fayose claimed that the wife of the President was a wanted person in the US.

He had said, “Even the President cannot claim to be an angel. The estate he built in Abuja is known to us. His wife was indicted in the Halliburton scandal. When that American, Jefferson, was being sentenced, the President’s wife was mentioned as having wired $170,000 to Jefferson. Her name was on page 25 of the sentencing of Jefferson. We can serialise the judgment for people to see and read.”

Fayose repeated the claim in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi. He said Aisha refused to travel with the President to the US because of her involvement in the scandal.



  1. now everybody dey tackle dem selves ,too bad ,dey don forget say work dey many wey dey suppose do .no worry una sack letter dey pile up frm God

  2. They simply replied they don’t have any for you, she should travel to New York and know if there’s any at all; stop folling yourself we are too intelligent for this crap, they didn’t deny they just don’t have any for you

  3. It is simply a DIPLOMATIC response. “We have no information to provide on this matter”. In other words ‘what else do you want me to say when our website has said it all’? Aisha Buhari was indicted in that website.

    • Stupid man, who told you is the President’s wife is the woman in the pictures displayed by your fellow moron fayose?

  4. @Uche,common sense should tell you that there is no way Aisha Buhari could have been involved in such scandal when she was never an official or agent of the then government,where would he have access to such money or was it given to her by Obasanjo? And for your information,PDP would have used such information to discredit Buhari During the last election if it was true so,don’t reason ignorantly,be wiser.

  5. @olufemi Adebayo the point is you’re using common sense and that’s why you’re thinking and getting common analysis; I don’t do common sense as I’m not a common person, I use uncommon sense as my training has taught me to always listen to what people are saying and much more what they’re not saying, there’s always been the first ladies forum, she and her husband has always been at the corridor of power, after all he worked with Abacha, so please think uncommonly if she’s innocent she should prove it by travelling to the United States like her husband has been globe trotting

  6. Is d first lady d only lady bearing Aisha Buhari. Its a very common name. Even my neighbours 10yr old is aisha buhari, o what the heck? Dey shd investigate the actual aisha buhari in d website before castigating d poor woman

  7. U should not speak for or defend any one. These people, once in power have a way of connecting to themselves. They only fight in public but behind the curtain, they are one. Would you have known or believe that Buhari, as hard as he was on previous governments could collect SUVs from Jonathan,s government? That is just one out of so many you will never hear of.
