TROUBLE IN PARADISE! My Husband Favoured 'Sycophants', Sidelined Those Who Suffered For Him
The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, on Tuesday accused some unnamed people of creating divisions among members of the All Progressives Congress.
Mrs. Buhari levelled the allegations in an interview she granted the Hausa Service of the BBC which was aired in part on Tuesday.
The President’s wife, who was responding to a question by her interviewer, said, “This worries us a lot now. Because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but are no where today. Those who didn’t do anything who don’t even have voters’ card are the ones in position, doing everything.”
In another part of the interview she said, “What I am afraid for them is the rebellion of 15 million people,” she was perhaps talking about the number of voters who made her husband’s ascension to power possible.
In response to a question on whether the President knew those causing the problems for his government, Aisha Buhari said, “Whether he knows or he doesn’t know, those who voted for him know. There is nothing I will tell him. 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.”
Mrs. Buhari who also revealed that her husband had not told her his plans for 2019, saying “He has not told me but I have decided.”
The BBC promised to air the full interview on Friday and Saturday where her full views would become public.
