Aisha Buhari issues stern warning to her husband

14 October 2016, 09:44

Abuja - First Lady Aisha Buhari has warned her husband that he may lose her support at the next election unless he shakes his government up and makes things right, Naij reports.

Speaking during an interview with the BBC's Naziru Mikailu, Aisha Buhari revealed that her husband "does not know" most of the top officials that have been appointed in his administration while stating that she does not share the vision of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

"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," Buhari said.

Mrs Buhari disclosed that her husband has yet to confirm whether he will be contesting the 2019 presidential election but stated that she would not be supporting him should his administration continue on the course that it is currently on.

"He is yet to tell me but I have decided as his wife, that if things continue like this up to 2019, I will not go out and campaign again and ask any woman to vote like I did before. I will never do it again," she stated.

Despite mounting pressure to cut out parts of the interview, the BBC Hausa service aired excerpts of the interview on Tuesday, October 11, stating that the only way the interview would be withheld is through a directive from Mrs Buhari herself.

Since his success in the 2015 presidential elections, Aisha Buhari has denounced herself as the First Lady of Nigeria, instead stating that she prefers to be address as the "wife of the President", a separate Naij report revealed.
