Aisha Buhari Meets Michelle Obama
Wife of the president of Nigeria, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari and wife to President of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, finally met for the first time at a Broadway event some hours ago in New York which was hosted by Mrs Obama to help push for the ‘Girl Child Education’ around the world.
The two first ladies looked as though they shared the same tailor in their lovely floral dresses. While Aisha wore a gold headscarf with a dress with gold flower designs with black underneath, her U.S counterpart, Michelle donned black dress with gold flowers and used netting to create her neckline and sleeves.

The Broadway event was held at Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre and was specifically for spouses of global heads of state and included performances from “The Color Purple,” ”Waitress,” ”Wicked” and “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.”
Michelle said: “When people hear stories of girls who aren’t in school, they want to help. And as spouses of world leaders, so many of us here in this room have a platform that we can use to tell these stories and bring people together to take action for these girls. Because people will pick up the phone when we call.”
