      Yeap its both husband and wife place. Depending on the family dynamics. Its all work whether on the field or at home. Na competition?As long as all areas are covvered adequately. . I suppose if men say their place is in the comfy home while women place is hustling in the field they will still make noise. I say whatever works in your home! The worst are men or women who are no good in any area.

    God help Nigerian women with oppressive male mind-set put upon us and the internal oppression that some women have as result often put on themselves.
    I thank God that I was given the privilege to leave to country, get a educated and get a broader and more open minded view of male and female dynamics. I desire and deserve much more beyond being a wife/mother.

    Everybody suddenly has an opinion. Waste of time watching this. Madam, piece of advise: face your Etisalat day job and make something out of it. Vblogging is not for everyone.

    You people were saying “her choice” when a female senator said that she belongs in the kitchen. Anther woman is now saying that she doesn’t belong in the kitchen and you guys are no longer endorsing “her choice”. That’s how you guys attack feminist opinions on this blog. Even if we are talking about egg somehow somebody must attack feminists or women empowerment

    Ashia get a job and stop parading upandan in yeye office of first lady. Use you msc and get a job independent of your husbands position. It is because she is jobless that is why she has time to interfer in politics. This is not a monarchy okay its democracy. Your husband was elected into office not you. Thank you buhari for reminding jonless woman of the job she is neglecting

      That depends on the perspective u are looking at it from. From were im standing this lady hasnt got a job. She jets off 1st class. Wears designer wears bags etc gets paid for absolutely noting. If shes so fierce she needs to ask buhari to get lost take her Msc and find a job and live like a common nigerian woman. For now from were i stand the world losses noting if she confines herself to her kitchen and wehatever inner rooms they got. How has she helped or repped nigerian women working hard to make ends meet. Shes just an another of those entitled nigerian woman. Buhari in a moment of madness just basicallly said the truth. If shes too fierce let her do like winnie Mandela

    I don’t understand what all the fuss is about, do we want to fight for Aisha or we are fighting for ourselves. I feel that there s more to what we are seeing on the surface. what will make a typical northern wife go out and criticise her husband and why will Buhari diss his wife n public. There is more to this and we need to watch and see how events unfold. If my husband says I belong to the kitchen will you come and fight for me. No, because I am not Aisha Buhari. Buhari has said that HIS WIFE (emphasis mine) belong to the kitchen, the living room and the other room. Did he say all women belong to the other room NO. The Minister of Finance, Environment are women, he has several women in his cabinet. Any man that disrespects his wife in public has brought disrespect to himself. Please can we just move on. The price of garri, rice, beans meat has not reduced, the value of the Naira is falling everyday, what we are concerned with #theotherroom. Gosh

      Thank you very much @Moyo. Nigeria’s problems are many. We need them to be solved, we shouldn’t care about Aisha and Buhari’s family problems. Aisha shouldn’t criticise Buhari in public while Buhari shouldn’t talk carelessly about Aisha in public. The National affairs shouldn’t be a topic for discussion between Aisha and Buhari (That is what THE PRESIDENT’S CABINET is for) except for specifics where Aisha’s input is required. Likewise, Buhari should have exercised some form of decorum when answering questions because he should know that his words will ALWAYS be held against him. However, Aisha’s ‘PARTY’ can also be in the kitchen, ensuring everyone including the President and his guests are well fed. In his Living room, ensuring that the President and his guests are well entertained. In his OTHER ROOM, ensuring that the President is sexually satisfied and his hormones are in sync with his senses so that when he needs to make rational decisions concerning Nigeria, he won’t be coming from a place of EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL STARVATION. As a woman, COOKING, ENTERTAINING AND SEXING YOUR SPOUSE SHOULD BE PARAMOUNT. Doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t handle other affairs. THAT IS PART OF WHAT MAKES A REAL WOMAN VERY FORMIDABLE….
