President Muhamamdu Buhari’s wife, Mrs Aisha Buhari, yesterday, arrived Washington DC ahead of the 25th Anniversary celebration of Zumunta Association USA Inc.
Governor Fayose and his aides might be in serous mess over character assassination for dragging the name of the president’s wife in the Williams Jefferson bribery scam.
It can be recalled that Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state had alleged involvement of President Buhari’s wife, Aisha, in the Williams Jefferson bribery scam, while challenging the president’s wife to visit the United States of America to convince Nigerians that she was not the Aisha Buhari mentioned in the judgment.
It is on record that the President has visited USA three times and his wife did not travel with him.
She ought to have visited USA last year September to chair a United Nation programme but she sent the wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki to represent her.
Meanhwile, the matter is currently at the Federal High Court, Abuja in an ex-parte motion, filed July 20, 2016, where Mrs. Buhari prayed the Abuja Division of the court, to grant her reliefs to issue writ of summons against Mr. Fayose and his media advisers, Idowu Adelusi and Lere Olayinka.
Olukayode Adeniyi, the presiding judge, granted all reliefs sought by Mrs. Buhari, including an order of substituted service.
Mary Ekpere, counsel to Mrs. Buhari, prayed the court for the lawsuit to be served on Mr. Fayose and his two aides.
