With the case of forged certificate in court, a new story with evidence implicating Aisha Buhari in the Halliburton scandal has met a new twist as the controversy surrounding the identity of the woman, Aisha Buhari, who was indicted in the Halliburton Scandal by United States authorities has increased.
A Nigerian standard international passport, issued at the Nigerian Embassy, Washington DC, USA on 19 January 2012, set to expire on 18 January 2017 contains curious details that may lead an average individual to believe the woman is either President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife or daughter.
The Standard Nigerian International Passport gave the woman’s date of birth as, 4 August 1975 with the place of birth being Daura, Katsina State, which is Buhari’s hometown. Interesting, her surname in the passport read, Buhari. But the first and second names were given as Aisha and Mohammadu.
A highly placed official of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) in Abuja, who does not want his name mentioned pointed out that the passport is either a fake one and if genuine would have been issued by corrupt Nigerian Embassy officials in Washington.
“There is no way any NIS staff would have approved that kind of details for a Nigerian passport. Those who processed the application should have known immediately that the lady was trying to impersonate a member of Buhari’s family. Look at the second name, Mohammadu. That is an Islamic name that a woman can never bear. Once she now wrote Daura as the place of birth, whoever approved the document should have been suspicious,” the source explained.
