The outstanding beauty of West Africa’s most recent first lady stems from many factors, one being that she is a cosmetologist and beauty therapist! She obtained a Diploma in Beauty and Therapy from the Carlton Institute of Beauty Therapy in the United Kingdom and is a member of the United Kingdom’s Vocational Training and Charitable Trust. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari tied the knot with her husband, President Muhamadu Buhari at the age of 18. They are blessed with five lovely children and a grandchild.
