Aisha Buhari Explodes

President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha is very angry and bitter and she has bared her mind…

“The leadership of the country under my husband would have performed better, but for two powerful individuals standing as clogs in its wheels. There are two men in President Muhammadu Buhari administration who have constituted themselves as hindrance for the speedy progress of governance.”

“I am disappointed in men who rather than fight these two men will go to them in the night begging for favour. If not for the two powerful men, Buhari’s achievements in the last three and a half years would have been accomplished by the president in one year. These two people in government would never allow things to move fast.”

“I have realised that Senator Babafemi Ojodu, Special Adviser on Political Matters to the President, and Dr. Hajo Sani, my aide, Sajo, and wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Osinbajo, are not comfortable with me saying this and want me to confine myself to my prepared speech, but we must say the truth.”

For those who don’t know, this is not the first time the president’s wife would be critical of her husband’s government and its functionaries. In an interview with BBC Hausa, Aisha said; “Buhari’s government have been hijacked by only a “few people who are behind presidential appointments. People who did not share the vision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were appointed to top posts because of the influence a few people wield.”

“The president does not know 45 out of 50 of the people he appointed and I don’t know them either, despite being his wife of 27 years. Some people are sitting down in their homes folding their arms only for them to be called to come and head an agency or a ministerial position.”
