Us: No Fraud Information On Aisha Buhari
The United States government has said that it has no information on the alleged crimes committed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, as alleged by Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose.
The acting Public Affairs Officer, US Consulate General, Lagos, Frank Sellin, said this in an email on Tuesday.
Sellin said this in response to an enquiry 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.”
Fayose had in June, 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.
