PDP: 'Mrs. Buhari didn’t go to US, Here Pictures Were Photoshopped'
The Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State has reacted to the purported visit of the Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, to the United States of America,insisting she did not go to the US.
This comes after the APC had in a statement on Sunday said the eventual travelling of Mrs. Buhari to the United States had exposed Governor Ayodele Fayose as a “shameless liar.”
However, in a statement issued on Monday by its PDP state Publicity Secretary, Mr. Jackson Adebayo, reads in part.
“The question is, did she travel to USA or Qatar? If the Presidency has not been bold enough to tell Nigerians that Mrs. Aisha Buhari travelled to the USA on official visit, only a party of scammers like the APC will go on the rooftops to celebrate photoshoped pictures as evidence of visit to USA.
"Most importantly, Nigerians have witnessed more heinous forgeries from the APC, one of them being pictorial claim that President Buhari (as the APC presidential candidate then) had an interview with Kemi Fadojutimi on ‘All Eyes on Africa’ TV show in London, whereas the interview was held in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
“However, it is important to point out that from all evidences, the pictures circulated as arrival of President Buhari’s wife at Dulles International Airport, Washington DC could have been taken at the Doha International Airport, Qatar.
"Even on the official website of George Mason University and US Institute of Peace, USA where the President’s wife was said to have attended events, there is nothing to show that she attended any event in the two institutions.
“We have seen pictures of Wife of the Senate President, Toyin Saraki with President Barrack Obama’s wife, Michelle. We also saw pictures of Mrs. Patience Jonathan with Michelle Obama when she visited the USA. Where are Aisha Buhari’s pictures with the First Lady of USA and major government officials from the country? Or could she have arrived and departed from the USA like a spirit?"
