Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, on Thursday travelled to the United States where she was scheduled to be the special guest at the 25th Anniversary of Zumunta Association.
According to a statement by her Director, Media, Zakari Nadabo, the event is scheduled to take place at the Silver Spring Civic Centre in Maryland, Washington DC.
Nadabo said the event with the theme, “Rebirth and Renewable,” would also be attended by the Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, who would serve as the guest speaker among other prominent Nigerians.
He said Mrs. Buhari would also be hosted to a roundtable discussion by the United States Institute of Peace to explore an in-depth conversation with a group of US policy makers and an invested group of practitioners focused on Nigeria.
The institute, according to him, is a congressionally funded, independent national institute dedicated to the proposition that peace is possible, practical and essential for the US and international security.
He added that Mrs. Buhari, who was accompanied by wives of some state governors, would also hold meetings at the George Mason University Washington during her period of stay in the US.
The President’s wife had earlier posted on her Facebook page that she got a warm reception on arrival.
Photos posted on her Facebook page showed her at the airport while receiving a bouquet of flowers from a girl and posing for photos with Nigerians carrying the country’s flag.
Her visit to the US came a few weeks after the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, accused her of refusing to visit the US because she was wanted there for corruption.
