Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari has confirmed escaping a plane crash while returning from a medical trip abroad.

The first lady disclosed the development in a post on her official Facebook page.

Her statement confirms earlier reports of the first lady been involved in a plane scare, prompting her to confirm the incident while confirming  she landed unscathed.

Mrs Buhari 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 a 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 service men and women of the entire Nigerian Airforce for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintainance of its Fleet.”

She went on to acknowledge the under funding of the health sector in Nigeria while urging healthcare providers to capitalise on Federal Government’s initiative to support the health sector.

She said, “I 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.”
