My Dubai return flight turbulent –Aisha Buhari

Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, and the flight crew of the Nigerian Air Force experienced air turbulence while returning from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

Despite the suspension of international flights, Aisha was flown to Dubai on August 7 to treat severe neck pain.

A top presidential aide had told The PUNCH that the First Lady started having severe neck pain during the 2019 presidential electioneering and had sought treatment abroad.

Two weeks after she jetted out of the country, Aisha on Saturday revealed that she and others encountered air turbulence on their way back from Dubai.

In a series of tweets via her verified Twitter handle, @aishambuhari, she wrote, “I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerians for their prayers and well-wishes while I was away for medical treatment. I am well now and fully recovered and have since returned back home, Nigeria.

“On our way back, the Nigerian Air Force flight encountered violent clear air turbulence which was navigated safely and professionally by the captain and crew of the flight.

“I want to commend and appreciate the courage and professionalism of the captain and his crew, the wonderful gallant servicemen and women of the entire Nigerian Air Force for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintenance of its fleet.”

The First Lady also called on private health care providers in the country to boost their capacity to reduce medical tourism.
