Aisha Buhari not pregnant, down with ailment suspected to be cancer

Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, is not expecting a baby but treating an undisclosed disease suspected to be cancer, multiple presidential sources told SaharaReporters.

Pictures showing Aisha and President Muhammadu Buhari arriving in the country from Turkey on Sunday had fuelled pregnancy rumour, with many Nigerians wondering if the First Lady is expecting a baby.

In one of the pictures, Aisha was seen in a yellow lace kaftan and a black shawl draped over what appeared like a baby bump which she tenderly placed her right hand on.

Another picture showed the couple on the plane’s stairs, with the First Lady having what looked like a baby bump as she gently stepped down the flight of stairs.

However, a presidential source on Monday told SaharaReporters that Aisha isn’t expecting a baby but down with an ailment.

He added that drugs being taken by the First Lady caused her to gain weight and also affected her shape.

“She’s not pregnant. She’s treating an undisclosed disease which is believed to be cancer. The drugs she’s taking had caused her to gain weight,” the source said.
