Here’s what Nigerians are Saying about Aisha Buhari Carrying a Hermes Birkin bag Reportedly worth N34m



Aisha Hermes BirkinFirst lady, Aisha Buhari was spotted with a designer Hermes Birkin 35cm Porosus Crocodile bag and it’s got many people talking.

The bag is worth between $69,000 and $89,000, that’s between N26,910,000 and N34,710,000 using the N390 to N1 dollar black market exchange rate.

While some people outrightly condemned her for using such a bag, other people condemned others for condemning her.

Some BN readers also had a lot to say here.

    She’s a presidents wife, I’m sure they can afford a Birkin. If he can send his kids to UK for college you better believe he can buy his wife or she can buy herself a Birkin. I’m also sure they weren’t beggars before he became president of Nigeria. They been had money. Abi?
    I’m sure many Nigerians are traveling buying ticket almost worth a million, people have weddings worth 34million naira theses days. If she has decided to buy Birkin, NA today?

      Do you honestly believe that anyone that can send their kids abroad for college can afford a $70K bag? How much do you think college costs?

      My parents sent all their kids abroad but they sure as hell don’t have $70k for a bag. That’s at least two years tuition.

      I thought, Buhhari is a simple, humble man who doesn’t have money for luxury. Patience Ebele was criticized for her expensive and flashy lifestyle. I know, first lady comes with a lot of perks but still carrying such exppensive bag when the country is going through Great Depression is not a good look at all. Aisha looks beautiful though, i like her outfit.

      Your comment is sense. Family sacrifices for their kids, and birkin bag is an insult to all the poor impoverished citizens of Nigeria at this point. she must sell that bag and fund an orphanage or widows. What callousness, as a first lady. Look at the state of the country first before you splurge on designer outfits, can she not get a cheaper bag and save the plight of our people, its enough that she flies on a presidential jet, that we cannot help, but that bag is a big NO, its an insult to the people of Nigeria, period! As the first lady and mother of the national, do right Mrs First Lady.

      @TeeS, you don’t get it do you? This is not about affordability. Buhari rode to power on lies that he is a frugal man who had only 150 cows and unable to afford a N1 million Naira nomination form. Aisha ran a below standard spa before her husband came into office. So, where did this sudden wealth come from? Let us even assume this and many others are gifts, should she be accepting such expensive gifts knowing her husband is the “epitome” of anti corrupt practices? If you accept such an expensive gift, what are you closing your eyes to? If you want to catch an elephant, surely, you ain’t gonna set your trap with a rat!

      We are in a recession. I expect some sacrifice from the first family. I blame Buhari he should man his household. Even when we hear this wife is headstrong and does not care very much for the old man’s stance regarding frugal living.

      Why did she not carry the Birkin before they became President. quote me any day- the president of Nigeria cannot afford Birkin bag especially not a Buhari who slashed his salary in half. nigerians deserve the leaders they get because we can be so so so zooish! the level of corruption under buhari is terrible , i really wonder how he can go on about anti corruption with the level of corruption he is sanctioning. Buhari is clearly a case of see no corruption, hear no corruption, do nothing as it is about people close to me.

      This is precisely the problem with Nigeria. No one understands the concept of corporate compliance. How can a first lady or govt official for that matter accept a gift of $40k – $100k? That is against all compliance rules. You are not supposed to accept gifts worth over $500 i believe (the $ amount may even be lower than 500). We need to educate ourselves more.

      Have you heard of corporate compliance before?
      Any gift given to you in office must be declared!
      Certain amount of gifts ,you are not supposed to accept
      . More so, a president, who supposed to be fighting corouption and is and gives the impression he is corruption free.

    • Nnanna

      August 7, 2016 at 10:06 pm

      Must you do follow follow. Which corporat complianc policy in Nigeria prevents her from accepting gifts, assuming she did, do you know? So because there is recessions n, she should not use any expensive she owns? Is it her personal resources that she should use to run the country? Do even business owners use their personal monies to run a fully established business? Yeye dey smell.

  4. I’m pretty sure she can effort it…so I can’t see where is the problem for the people!
    Maybe only a “trolling” activity to create disappointment!

    Sure if that aunty that own a negative gossip blog can own a birkin Hermes bag,although it was later confirmed to be first grade imitation she bought,the First Lady can surely buy the original version,at worst no salaries for teachers,the money for an irrelevant bag must come out….mtsheeeeeew

Even in civilised countries both negative and positive stories are carried. Besides is it jealousy that a person like Linda afforded a Birkin bag? Fine the first picture she posted was probably fake but what about the last two that were original? Your hatred won’t take you far in life. Check yourself

      There are different types of Birkin bags. The regular leather ones are about $10K but the croc version our first lady is crying is much more expensive.

  6. mary

    August 4, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    Nigerians should just let her be, ordinary people carry designers, she is the president’s wife of the FRN, she had a life and a business before she became the first lady, and more so most of these items are gifted to them , so what’s the big deal with her carrying a Hermes Birkin, she wore a Cartier watch on the day of swearing in even before she became the first lady and that was a big deal for Nigerians, ordinary Nigerian citizens go for summer holidays abroad with their family in this tight economy, so if they can afford such luxury, then why not.

  7. nwa nna

    August 4, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    There’s nothing wrong with her owning a Hermes bag,.. The issue is the message it sends to Nigerians & the world at large, while PMB is preaching and telling Nigerians plus the rest of the world that Nigeria is facing tough economic times with no money to spend on its own citizens, his wife the first lady is rocking a fantastically expensive bag! It smacks of hypocrisy on the part of the Nigerian first family, you are telling Nigerians to manage & soak garri while you and yours feed on caviar!!
    Even the US first lady gets critized for wearing expensive designer dresses, and the US economy is much better shape than Nigeria..

    August 4, 2016 at 5:28 pm

    I don’t know if it is a real Birkin or may be she was given as a gift, there could be different possibilities however knowing the sensitivity of being the strict ( anti corruption) president who is trying to scourge Nigeria of corruption and senseless looting of public funds, I feel Aisha should have carried a much less expensive bag to the US instead.

    I like what Buhari is doing but Aisha and her kids should know that they are being watched like a hawk and be very careful not to portray they are now swimming in money. Don’t be Buhari’s Achilles heel!

    other than packaging to give the impression a thing is handcrafted by the gods and exclusive to only the worthy, is there really a logical path by which a handbag pricing scheme like that comes to be?
    i mean, i can understand German engineering or high-precision-sterile-environs technology— but a leather bag? really?

      The irony is that NOBODY that is wealthy and made that money honestly will support your ‘idea’
      How does it make sense?
      A man who came in (and runs still) on the guise of simplicity and austerity
      Why did he wait till he became President to wear Gucci? Why did Aisha wait till she became 1st Lady to wear Cartier and Hermes. Why did Zahra wait till now to show us her Manolo and Chanel collection?

      A country is in recession
      You take tax money and revenue made from struggling people to give to wealthy politicians who rock expensive designers on the back of people who cant spell expensive because they can’t go to school.

      It’s all fun and games for you until you lose your job. Wait, you don’t even have one (yet) and it will be 3 times as hard as it was last year and you still don’t see the writing on the wall. Rich people’s children aren’t coming back to Naija anymore because there are no (decent) jobs with job security even with their parent’s positions. Wait until you need to send a loved one abroad for treatment, and while PMB can easily take himself and his fellow politicians to London, you….Can’t.

    • You lied

      August 5, 2016 at 1:49 am

      Exposed! You’ve been exposed. You obviously don’t visit Linda’s blog.
      Linda is the only blogger in Nigeria that posts every single comment. I mean every comment. I’ve read lots of insults targeted at her, her family and even her mother. She has been called all unprintable names, accused of the worst, on her blog oh. And she posts ALL. Only Linda does that.
      Each time someone makes the kind of comment you just made I just know the person is being mischievous and untruthful. Nobody who really knows about LIB will tell you in good conscience that Linda filters comments. That’s exactly what she never does. Maybe it’s her business strategy, to ensure that her paymasters always see many comments.
      And Linda is not tribalistic in her posts. She makes fun of Ibadan, Owerri, Enugu, etc. She promotes individuals and events from different parts of the world. The Nigerian artist she loves and promotes more than any other is Tiwa Savage. She says Kiss Daniel is the next big thing. Maybe when next you call her a tribal bigot you substantiate by stating how exactly. And I’d like you to prove me wrong by narrating proofs of her so-called tribal bigotry under this thread.
      If you say she’s hopelessly obsessed with the Kadarshians I’ll agree, but not this. Haba!
      It’s just unfair and wicked how people come to BN to tell lies about Linda. Someone who doesn’t visit LIB might come here, read your comment and actually believe Linda is a tribal bigot who doesn’t post comments critical of her. But that’s a big lie from the gutters.

      FYI I’ve never met Linda. She doesn’t know me. As a matter of fact her blog is not my favourite. BN is still the most organised, most professional blog in Nigeria (content, comments, etc). The rest, apart from 360nobs, are just one-man business. I even consider Stella to be more creative than Linda. But I go to Linda first because I think she has the fastest finger and if you visit her blog at a time when other bloggers are probably sleeping you might see something new.
      So it’s not about Linda. It’s just that I can’t stomach the constant lies, hatred and unwarranted smear campaign against her, even when the post has nothing to do with her. It’s sickening. You guys should stop. Criticise but don’t tell obvious lies abeg.

First, it was the way she came out to attack Fayose on Social media… Not minding that she’s d ‘wife of the president’.. Now, it’s carrying a 34 million naira handbag, obviously not even thinking about the very bad economy, suffering and troubles that are going on in a country being ruled by her husband. She obviously is not a very wise woman… She no dey think.. She doesn’t use her head…. Too bad!

      All she is doing is carrying second wives around the world.

      Aisha herself is the original unchained mad dog. No wonder the president said he will not have office of first lady., he knows she lacks self discipline. The Tinubu that gave her “the watch” is the same Tinubu that gave her “the bag”. Greedy woman.

    All these people sef, people are suffering and you’re rubbing croc Hermes in their faces. What was she expecting? We have to know the suffering is national. We’re in this together dammit! I think it’s just inconsiderate but that’s a fab bag.

    It’s probably a gift I’m telling you I have seen ppl spend money like this on just regular senate ppl when bidding for jobs. She doesn’t strike me as a superficial person she probably didn’t even know it cost that much.

    I even thought people were coming against her for not carrying a Nigerian made handbag, to support our very own economy and promote it. Hell no…. I pity all those people learning how to make bags and shoes when the elites are carrying Hermes bag.

    Since the ‘change’ government is promoting buy Nigeria goods,she could have promoted an upcoming Nigerian designer by carrying their bag rather than the the hermes bag knowing fully well she is been watched. All u ‘change’ supporters, una eyes go soon clear. #shadypeople.?

    .Na wa for .Nigerians!! There is nothing that will make you happy. Do we actually know when she bought that bag?? .Being simple and frugal does not mean you carry nylon bag and use newspaper to wipe your arse.! .You ppl are LOOKING for something so if it is that tomorrow she has been carrying the same bag since they entered office…that will be another wahala point. HOW do you know she’s not promoting nigeria? HAVE you seen her other bags?? What shes wearing.? what she’s eating.? Which designer in Nigeria even makes bags ENTIRELY nigerian?? As if they won’t tell u the leather is from italy. EVERYBODY just needs to STFU! Because this whole look at this and look at that nonsense is getting tiring. look at YOURSELF how much are you paying your househelp?? Driver?? how MUCH is your weave.?? .Please, just go away.

    Aisha’s greed and gra gra has led her to destruction. Which wealth did she have before? That bag can buy her, her husband, her children and her entire family. President Buhari’s most fantastically corrupt citizen with unexplained wealth is sleeping in his bed, as his wife. What a disgraceful first international outing in what should have been her finest hour. Why spend Nigeria’s money to carry “first second wives” club and her wannabe famous daughter Zahra the hustler to America to see United States Institute of Peace when they have a branch in Abuja? Which “bilateral talks” does Aisha have capacity to hold when the day she arrived DC the US Embassy issued “do not travel” to her home state Adamawa and her husband’s home state Katsina? The Buhari family’s graft and corruption is clear. Greedy devilish dictators..

    Any rich Nigerian woman visiting aso rock could have given her that.if I have the money and have to visit aso rock,I won’t go there empty handed.I will go with a gift to either herself or the president…it is wisdom to honour people in authority. The fact that she carried it doesn’t mean she bought it herself. Even visiting other country as the first lady attracts gifts from people who know how to treat people in authority. She can’t come visit me or where I am and I will give her the worst I have. Please ehen . We don’t have to always jump and haul insults on people every time.confirm the information,know the source and then be real. If you have the money you will buy the bag so what’s the tears for. …

    Really I don’t understand the fuss about Aisha and her birkin bag, she was probably gifted and I don’t know why we are dtaging the president into this he probably doesn’t even know what a birkin is talk more of knowing how much it cost.

    My goodness!!! Why is this even news????? What’s anyone’s business if I wear Jimmy Choo or choose to buy Louboutin shoes or carry a birkin bag or coach bag? Whose beeswax is it??? How much is the suit she’s wearing. Did anyone ask if that’s worth a fortune or her shoes for that matter. What is the problem???? With a ton of issues Nigeria is faced with and when everyone should be thinking about the way forward. Thinking about innovative things, people have time to discuss how much a First Lady’s handbag is worth!! I have a problem with Nigerians!
