Nigeria’s first lady, Aisha Buhari, has ordered all her staff to proceed on leave indefinitely.
This was contained in a statement signed by Dr. Mohammed Kamal, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Office of the First Lady on Health and Development Partners.
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.
“Her Excellency appreciates and thank all staff for their commitment and hard work and wish all a happy festive period ahead.”
This is coming amid rumours that the First Lady is pregnant.
After returning from a trip to Turkey with her husband, pictures of the First Lady went viral and attracted different comments.
But in an interview with BBC Pidgin, Aisha’s spokesman denied the rumour.
