Those Who Contributed to Bringing this Government to Power Are Being Sidelined – Aisha Buhari

In an interview with BBC Hausa, wife of President Buhari, Aisha Buhari said that some people are grumbling because they are sidelined after contributing the emergence of Buhari as president.

“This worries us a lot now. Because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but are no where today. Those who didn’t do anything who don’t even have voters’ card are the ones in position, doing everything,” she said.

She also said that this is causing problems for the party (All Progressives Congress) particularly because those running the show in this government are those who did not contribute anything to bring it to power.

She added that she is very concerned about what might happen if the 15 million that supported her husband decide to revolt.

Asked whether Buhari is aware of this, she replied:

Whether he is aware or not the people who voted for him are aware and there’s nothing i can tell him because he sees everything too .Among all the people he appointed, if he is asked among 50 people, he doesn’t know 45. I don’t know them despite staying with him for over 25 years.

Responding to a question on whether her husband is contesting in 2019, she said: “I am not aware but I have reached my own conclusion.”

The full interview is expected to be released this weekend.

      And some of you actually believe and fall for the brainwash. The woman has been sent to use reverse psychology on Nigerians and some of you gullibles who persistently REFUSE to use your God-given brains and/or to just read newspapers or news platforms just allow yourselves to be led blindly and manipulated any which way your puppet-masters choose. They tell lies as truth and you don’t even think for a second but you believe it. Just look in the FEC,, Buhari’s ministers, from there, you can start counting all the people who helped him get to where he is now and whom he has rewarded (most especially those who emptied the coffers of their states to fund his presidential campaign).

      Do I smell mutiny in the Buhari house? Madam is speaking about those who helped being sidelined. Either she is communicating a message to Oga because he wont listen to direct talk in the bedroom (or maybe polits don hijack the bobo from matrimonial home (not that he is cheating but sometimes you dont see your spouse for days), OR she is calling the outside for help. Interesting. Madam, how can we help?

    So it’s now mandatory that all who stood by the president during the election be awarded a government position? SMH! The death of democracy!! Anyways, whether the 15million people root for him again or stand down; Buhari won’t be our president in 2019.

      Don’t mind the woman. 15 million people revolt? Violence runs in the blood of Buhari and that of members of his household. If Nigeria were not a docile society, madam you and your daddy will be in Saudi in exile. Govt used our common wealth to bail out states so salaries can be paid. States are owing salaries in excess of six months and people are going about as if this is normal. And all madam can talk about is how
      15 million people will revolt in defence of her husband? Such illusion of grandeur.

    We know that. Buhari already made up his mind to only run for a term so he can bite the hands that fed him. No wahala.

    Why is the First Lady making such bold statements on government? That is not her role. We did not elect her. I am worried. It looks like we might have another Tuari Yar’dua on our hand. African first ladies, please stay in your lane, you are not an elected official, you have no mandated power, stop giving political interviews.

    This woman and her husband are terrorizing Nigeria. Isn’t she a wife? Wives don’t speak.

    Why is Nigeria’s first lady always addressing audience in Hausa ? Is Hausa now our lingua franca or can’t she speak in English?
    Is she afraid people will retaliate given what APC did to Patience Jonathan?n

    I’m seriously worried about what I just read. It’s as if our President and his wife’s mind are not in tandem!
