Buhari's comments: #TheOtherRoom trending in Nigeria

15 October 2016, 19:29

Abuja – The hashtag #TheOtherRoom is trending on Twitter in Nigeria following President Muhammadu Buhari's response to his wife’s criticism.

Buhari on Friday responded to his wife's remarks during a BBC interview in which she said that she may not back him in the next election in 2019.

But hitting back at Aisha as he addressed journalists following talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel during a visit to Berlin, Germany, Buhari said that his wife belonged to his kitchen.

"I don't know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room," Buhari said while standing next to Merkel, who seemed to glare at him.

Aisha claimed that her husband did not know many top government appointees, and she accused them of not sharing the vision of his All Progressive party. She, however, did not name names. 

But Buhari said that having run for president three times and having succeeded at the fourth attempt, he could "claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition because at the end I have succeeded" in winning Nigeria’s presidency. 

"It is not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties and participate in the government," Buhari was quoted as saying. 

Following Buhari’s remarks, many in Nigeria took to social media, with some wondering what Buhari meant by "the other room". The hashtag #TheOtherRoom started trending in the west Africa country.
