Investigations by BREAKING TIMES on Monday revealed that Aisha Buhari, wife of the President of Nigeria wore a Cartier Baignoire Folle 18-Carat White Gold Diamond Ladies Watch that cost Â£34,500 to President Muhammadu Buhariâ€™s inauguration on Friday, May 29 2015.
The equivalent of this at the current Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) foreign exchange rate of N303 to Â£1 is N10, 453, 000 (Ten Million, Four Hundred and Fifty Three Thousand Naira).
The Cartier Baignoire Folle 18-Carat White Gold Diamond Ladies Watch comes in a case made of rhodiumised white gold set with brilliant-cut diamonds. On the side of the case is an octagonal crown set with a diamond. The case is 44mm high, 35mm wide and 10mm thick and is covered by glare-proof sapphire crystal glass.President Muhammadu Buhari was elected riding on the wave of strong anti-corruption, integrity and pro-masses sentiment.
This shocking extravagance by Mrs. Buhari runs contrary to earlier indications that the Buharis are modest and the President, a pastoral farmer with 150 cows, barely raised the money to pay for his presidential nomination form.
