Nigerians react to Aisha Buhari’s statement


The wife of Nigeria’s president, Mrs Aisha Buhari has said people have started causing division within the All Progressive Congress (APC).

In an interview with the Hausa Service of the BBC which was partially aired Tuesday, October 11, Mrs Buhari said her husband does not personally know most of the people he appoints in his administration.

However, Nigerians has reacted to the first lady’s statement saying she just confirmed fears that all is not well with Buhari’s government. Some are of the opinion that there is nothing wrong with what she Mrs Buhari said on the radio, adding that she said what many people including APC members have been saying in private.

Responding to a question on whether her husband had sufficient knowledge of the identity of those at the centre of the controversies, she said: “Whether he knows or not, those who voted for him know. “He can see. Among all the people he selected, if he is asked among 50 people, he doesn’t know 45. I don’t know them despite staying with him for 25 years.”
