Presidency mounts pressure on BBC not to air Aisha Buhari's revealing interview

13 October 2016, 16:30

Abuja - The BBC Hausa Service is under intense pressure from the presidency not to air the recent interview granted by the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, which is due for broadcast on Saturday., according to Sahara Reporters.

President Muhammadu Buhari is said to have reached out to his wife, who is currently in London, to stop granting further interviews to the media.

In excerpts that have been widely reported in the media, Aisha Buhari is quoted as saying that the President had ditched those who really worked for his victory in the 2015 election and is instead focusing on those that didn't participate.

The First Lady also said the President did not know a majority of his ministers before appointing them to office and expressed her concern that certain individuals are creating division within the party according to News24.

"What I am afraid for them is the rebellion of 15 million people," says Buhari at the end of the excerpt available to the public.

Asked whether the president knows 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."
