Aisha Buhari, Wife of the President of Nigeria, Mohammedu Buhari speaking on escaping plane crash has confirmed the flight incident that nearly claimed her life and that of her daughter, Hanan on Friday.
According to reports, the first lady, Aisha Buhari and her daughter, Hanan was flying back to Nigeria from her medical trip in Dubai when the Airplane encountered some troubles in the air.
Confirming the incident in a series of tweets on Saturday night, Aisha commended the crew of the Airforce flight for the courage in managing the dangerous movement.
The first lady said.
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 had since returned back home, Nigeria.
On our way back, the Nigerian Airforce 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 Airforce for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintenance of its Fleet.
Recall hosting the private healthcare Providers earlier in the year and we had a very productive engagement where the issue of building the capacity of Nigeria health sector was the major focus, and funding was discovered to be the major challenge.
I therefore call on the healthcare providers to take the advantage of the Federal Government’s initiative through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) guidelines for the operation of NGN100 Billion Credit Support for the Healthcare Sector as was released recently contained in a circular dated March 25, 2020 to the Commercial Banks.
This will no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the Country.
Once again, I thank our frontline workers, and all Nigerians for their steadfast as we navigate the challenges facing the entire world.
