Aisha vows to work closely with Buhari, says ‘all I want is for my husband to succeed’
Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has declared that her interests lie in the success of her husband’s government, despite controversies.
Aisha made this known on Thursday at Beneshiek, headquarters of Kaga Local Government Area, LGA, of Borno state at the flag off of nutritional foods and household utensils to Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs who recently returned to their communities.
Recall that Mrs. Buhari had in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service alleged that her husband’s administration had been hijacked, adding that she would not campaign for his re-election in 2019 if he does not rejig his cabinet.
But Buhari had during a joint Press conference he had with the German Chancellor, Angela Markel at his three-day visit to Berlin, responded to a question regarding his wife’s remark, saying his wife belongs in his kitchen, living room and the other room.
The comment by Buhari that his wife belongs in his kitchen had sparked controversies across the country.
However, in what appeared like a response to the heat generated by her interview and apparently her first public reaction, Aisha said, “What I am after in particular is the success of my husband’s administration and he can’t do it alone, except with the help of the governors, their wives and all members of our progressive party.”
While citing an example with herself going forward, Aisha advised wives of political leaders, governors, legislators, local government chairmen and counselors to work closely with their husbands for the well-being of the people.
