The impostor of Nigeria’s first lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari, who led to her being mentioned in the bribery scandal involving a U.S. congressman, Williams Jefferson, has been exposed.
Aishat Alubankudi, a Facebook user, took to the social media where she shared the passport details of the said impostor, adding that everything about the issue was organised and aimed at destroying the reputation of President Muhammadu Buhari, particularly his wife.
Aishat shared the impostor’s passport with the caption:
“All those desperately looking for PMB and his family’s downfall, this is Aisha Buhari the impostor. Kindly share for the world to see. Bring it on we would counter it!!”

Recall that the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, on Monday, 20 June, reopened a controversy surrounding the role played by the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, in the messy bribery scandal involving a U.S. Congressman, Williams Jefferson.
Special Assistant to governor Fayose on New Media, Lere Olayinka, later circulated links to the U.S.Department of Justice Web site and court documents where Mrs. Buhari was said to have transferred suspicious funds to the convicted former American congressman.
The documents showed that in some of the exhibits tendered in convicting Mr. Jefferson of bribery, Mrs. Buhari was mentioned as transferring $170,000 to the American politician using a firm as proxy. The US Government Sentencing Memorandum said on page 22:
“Government Exhibits 36-87 (6/26/02 $170,000 wire transfer from account in Nigeria in the name of Aisha Buhari to an account in the name of The ANJ Group, LLC, identifying “William Jefferson” as Beneficiary)”.
Fayose’s comment triggered a recollection of how Mr Jefferson, between 2000 and 2005, used his position as member of the U.S. House of Representatives to offer illegal services to private companies for cash rewards.
