WATCH President Buhari Say “My wife belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room”

Published

 on

Here’s the video of President Muhammadu Buhari‘s response to his wife, Aisha Buhari‘s claims that people who did not support him to victory are now the ones running the government.

He was answering a question about her interview with the BBC at a press conference in Germany, while standing alongside Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room. It’s not easy to do away with your opposition or people who have not followed you along your campaign trail,” he had said, adding that he has superior knowledge when compared to her or the opposition, having contested four times before claiming victory.

      Ewww lmfao. He said the other room as if his pencil I mean penis still dey function but wetin concern me for that matter lmao. I knew it was only a matter of time before they start doing damage control. If it was a joke, it was an idiotic one and it will put a bigger dent on his already dented legacy. But no worries, he’s lucky his predecessors were equally mumu so they won’t have room to judge him and the controversy won’t stick cuz it’s Nigeria. Sad but true. On a serious note sha, we all know this man wasn’t joking so writing off the vomit he dumped on the mic earlier as a joke no go work. He spoke his mind and spoke as a stereotypical weak religious nut who uses religion to back his hunger and quest for control especially when it comes to women. Sickos.

      Jokes aside though, women are having a rough week in the media…from Trumps 90s groping spree and now this…

      Y’all about to be the leaders of what, a combined $24 trillion in production, thousands of nukes, literally the power to end all mankind (please don’t).

      What’s a rough week compared to that??

      Weirdly though, women came out on top. First Trump wrecks our perfectly calibrated plans to defeat Clinton, then PMB starts attracting unwanted attention to Nigerian patriarchy, from where I’m sitting, its been a bad week for “us”.

      Patriarchy central will have to discipline these idiots. Thank God for E Warren v MJ White, atleast two successful women feuding will distract the wider world from PMB’s gaffe.

    Lol, Mr president has succeeded in diverting people’s attention from the wife’s comment, Nigerians receive sense, people were bashing the wife for her unthoughtful comment and he needed to divert our attention within 48 hours so we could forget about what she said and hinge on his own.Old man sense pass una own

      His comments makes sense, did you read the transcript of the interview? She was basically advocating that Buhari should reward those that campaigned for him with positions in government even though they may not be qualified for the post. Although I cannot say that Buhari put qualified people in those positions, what she is advocating would have caused an uproar in an ideal society. When she said she will not campaign for her husband in 2019 if things continue this way, she was referring to him not rewarding those that campaigned for him.

    THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF ASO VILLA, by Reuben Abati October 14, 2016

    People tend to be alarmed when the Nigerian Presidency takes certain decisions. They don’t think the decision makes sense. Sometimes, they wonder if something has not gone wrong with the thinking process at that highest level of the country. I have heard people insist that there is some form of witchcraft at work in the country’s seat of government. I am ordinarily not a superstitious person, but working in the Villa, I eventually became convinced that there must be something supernatural about power and closeness to it. I’ll start with a personal testimony. I was given an apartment to live in inside the Villa. It was furnished and equipped.

    But when my son, Michael arrived, one of my brothers came with a pastor who was supposed to stay in the apartment. But the man refused claiming that the Villa was full of evil spirits and that there would soon be a fire accident in the apartment. He complained about too much human sacrifice around the Villa and advised that my family must never sleep overnight inside the Villa. I thought the man was talking nonsense and he wanted the luxury of a hotel accommodation. But he turned out to be right. The day I hosted family friends in that apartment and they slept overnight, there was indeed a fire accident. The guests escaped and they were so thankful. Not long after, the President’s physician living two compounds away had a fire accident in his home. He and his children could have died. He escaped with bruises.

    Around the Villa while I was there, someone always died or their relations died. I can confirm that every principal officer suffered one tragedy or the other; it was as if you needed to sacrifice something to remain on duty inside that environment. Even some of the women became merchants of dildo because they had suffered a special kind of death in their homes (I am sorry to reveal this) and many of the men complained about something that had died below their waists too. The ones who did not have such misfortune had one ailment or the other that they had to nurse. From cancer to brain and prostate surgery and whatever, the Villa was a hospital full of agonizing patients.

    I recall the example of one particular man, an asset to the Jonathan Presidency who practically ran away from the Villa. He said he needed to save his life. He was quite certain that if he continued to hang around, he would die. I can’t talk about colleagues who lost daughters and sons, brothers and uncles, mothers and fathers, and the many obituaries that we issued. Even the President was multiply bereaved. His wife, Mama Peace was in and out of hospital at a point, undergoing many surgeries. You may have forgotten but after her husband lost the election and he conceded victory, all her ailments vanished, all scheduled surgeries were found to be no longer necessary and since then she has been hale and hearty. By the same token, all those our colleagues who used to come to work to complain about a certain death beneath their waists and who relied on videos and other instruments to entertain wives (take it easy boys, I don’t mean nay harm, I am writing!), have all experienced a re-awakening. Everyone who went under the blade has received miraculous healing, and we are happy to be out of that place.

    But others were not so lucky. They died. There were days when convoys ran into ditches and lives were lost. In Norway, our helicopter almost crashed into a mountain. That was the first time I saw the President panicking. The weather was all so hazy and he just kept saying it would not be nice for the President of a country to die in a helicopter crash due to pilot miscalculations. The President went into a prayer mode. We survived. In Kenya once, we had a bird strike. The plane had to be recalled and we were already airborne with the plane acting like it would crash. During the 2015 election campaigns, our aircraft refused to start on more than one occasion. The aircraft just went dead. On some other occasions, we were stoned and directly targeted for evil. I really don’t envy the people who work in Aso Villa, the seat of Nigeria’s Presidency. For about six months, I couldn’t even breathe properly. For another two months, I was on crutches. But I considered myself far luckier than the others who were either nursing a terminal disease or who could not get it up.

    When Presidents make mistakes, they are probably victims of a force higher than what we can imagine. Every student of Aso Villa politics would readily admit that when people get in there, they actually become something else. They act like they are under a spell. When you issue a well- crafted statement, the public accepts it wrongly. When the President makes a speech and he truly means well, the speech is interpreted wrongly by the public. When a policy is introduced, somehow, something just goes wrong. In our days, a lot of people used to complain that the APC people were fighting us spiritually and that there was a witchcraft dimension to the governance process in Nigeria. But the APC folks now in power are dealing with the same demons. Since Buhari government assumed office, it has been one mistake after another. Those mistakes don’t look normal, the same way they didn’t look normal under President Jonathan. I am therefore convinced that there is an evil spell enveloping this country. We need to rescue Nigeria from the forces of darkness. Aso Villa should be converted into a spiritual museum, and abandoned.

    Should I become President of Nigeria tomorrow, I will build a new Presidential Villa: a Villa that will be dedicated to the all-conquering Almighty, and where powers and principalities cannot hold sway. But it is not about buildings and space, not so? It is about the people who go to the highest levels in Nigeria. I really don’t quite believe in superstitions, but I am tempted to suggest that this is indeed a country in need of prayers. We should pray before people pack their things into Aso Villa. We should ask God to guide us before we appoint ministers. We should, to put it in technocratic language, advise that the people should be very vigilant. We have all failed so far, that crucial test of vigilance. We should have a Presidential Villa where a President can afford to be human and free. In the White House, in the United States, Presidents live like normal human beings. In Aso Villa, that is impossible. They’d have to surround themselves with cooks from their villages, bodyguards from their mother’s clans and friends they can trust. It should be possible to be President of Nigeria without having to look behind one’s shoulders. But we are not yet there. So, how do we run a Presidency where the man in the saddle can only drink water served by his kinsman? No. How can we possibly run a Presidency where every President proclaims faith in Nigeria but they are better off in the company of relatives and kinsmen. No. We need as Presidents men and women who are willing to be Nigerians. No Nigerian President should be in spiritual bondage because he belongs to all of us and to nobody.

    Now let me go back to the spiritual dimension. A colleague once told me that I was the most naïve person around the place. I thought I was a bright, smart, professional doing my bit and enjoying the President’s confidence. I spelled it out. But what I got in response was that I was coming to the villa using Lux soap, but that most people around the place always bathed in the morning with blood. Goat blood. Ram blood. Whatever animal blood. I argued. He said there were persons in the Villa walking upside down, head to the ground. I screamed. Everybody looked normal to me. But I soon began to suspect that I was in a strange environment indeed. Every position change was an opportunity for warfare. Civil servants are very nice people; they obey orders, but they are not very nice when they fight over personal interests.

    The President is most affected by the atmosphere around him. He can make wrong decisions based on the cloud of evil around him. Even when he means well and he has taken time to address all possible outcomes, he could get on the wrong side of the public. A colleague called me one day and told me a story about how a decision had been taken in the spiritual realm about the Nigerian government. He talked about the spirit of error, and how every step taken by the administration would appear to the public like an error. He didn’t resign on that basis but his words proved prophetic. I see the same story being re-enacted. Aso Villa is in urgent need of redemption. I never slept in the apartment they gave me in that Villa for an hour.

    your wife wears the trousers
    you do not communicate with your wife
    you do not have a united front…….then the big question is how do you run the most populous country in Africa
    with such comments it shows you are uneducated, unrefined, you do not respect women, you can NOT run a family, let alone a country

I am only shocked at how he allowed himself to still sound so stupid while next to a powerful woman. The irony!

  15. That Curious Guy

    October 15, 2016 at 8:09 am

    I’m not even Nigerian but lemme bring my 2 cents here since everyone can do that apparently. The problem is not even that he said it or jocked about it or whatever. The problem is that he agreed to comment on the issue while being abroad. There is this simple rule in international diplomacy: a president DOES NOT comment his country’s political issues while on a press conference with a foreign leader. Moreover, they were supposed to talk about immigration, security and other serious issues. So 1) His PR effed up by letting journalists ask him that question (no journalist would ask A. Merkel that) 2) He effed up too by not simply avoiding the bullet.

    In that regard, I have a little story: During the cohabitation (it’s complicated to explain but it means they are not from the same party) between Mitterrand and Jacques Chirac (1986-1988), during a visit to Russia, they had a press conference. A Russian journalist asked Mitterrand a clarification about his difficult relationship with Chirac (who was his prime minister then). He got a cold answer from the President: “I do not comment my country’s internal issues abroad” VLAN! The journalist turned to Chirac, and there again the answer was similar to the first one, Chirac replied: “I have nothing to add” VLAN again!

    There you go my Naija peeps!

    A BIG shame and embarrassment. Such misogynistic, careless statement coming from Mr President. A bigger shame to the likes of DEBOLA LAGOS, JUDE and co who have decided to remain COMPLETELY mute on this matter. Even though you lot are now eating from the national cake, it is OK to criticize a government respectfully.

    My God what did I just watch. How is your wife an opposition Mr President, look at who Nigerians voted for! I wish we stuck with President Goodluck. It is obvious he tried and tried just to prove a point not to be the greatest leader ever in Nigeria but to shame his so called opposition. It is sad, and it just goes to show how senseless he is. When will Nigeria and Africa as a whole rose up from this. It’s really really sad. I pray his tenure comes to a quick end and Nigerians survive this rubbish.

    Everybody is now a political activist with women’s rights at the heart of their struggle. Please save me the populist bullshit. Y’all really gonna act like the average 25 year old in Nigeria and above hasn’t got parents that share this exact view in their house? Or we are going to act like we aren’t aware that Islamic law hasn’t always given women a back seat? This guy is 73, we debate over his graduation, you really think this dude can send text or browse the web? And we expect him to be the most politically current man on the job. People acting all surprised like ‘This is just reprehensible behavior. He owes us all an apology’. Abeg take several seats. Personally, I think he was joking because to start with, there is no way his wife is cooking in Aso Rock where even state government house has cook. Secondly, she owns one of the biggest boutiques in the north and the woman last I checked she had a Masters degree and is going for a PhD (don’t quote me on the Phd). The old man made a joke in line with his time. Sure it is tasteless within some liberal circles, but it really makes one wonder; are we stepping into a new type of Orwellian society where even our jokes or sometimes honest opinions are policed by the tyranny of the majority? How different is this to Muslims that wanted that Danish cartoonist dead for making a joke of Prophet Muhammad? (okay, y’all don’t want him literally dead, but you get the point). This notion that finding something offensive is enough reason to attack people is just another form of censorship. You can disagree with the statement but attacking the dude is really not necessary (the whole point of freedom of expression is to allow people say things we might not agree with, so when it is our turn, we can say things they might not like too), All this culture will do is drive issues underground like how America drove racism underground, but then now all of a sudden it on our face (The Trump Effect). If he really meant what he said, then dude needs to get with the times (but I think it’s way too late for him now), and if it was a joke, which it could have well been because he added ‘the other room’ and chuckled all through, then let the people that find it funny laugh and if you find it offensive, well, welcome reality, everybody finds something offensive and if we were born in his time let us not act like we would all be aware of these things and why it could be offensive.

      You are over here talking about allowing people to be themselves so we can counter what they say. Well, this is us countering. The joke was tasteless. Common sense/wisdom is necessary when dealing with foreign press.

      Interviewer: What’s your response to your wife’s interview?
      Buhari: I haven’t watched the interview(regardless of whether or not he had seen it). However, as a woman, a human and a Nigerian, she is entitled to her own opinion.

      Simple.

    It’s really appalling how social media works. You people are good at shining light on the bad things and forever ignoring the good! I am sure that Buhari has done some plaudible things since he came into power; the man is really trying to fix Nigeria and even if things may look extremely horrible right now, he is still working! You people think Nigeria is going to get better overnight. For this country to come back in shape, it has to break down first! Change can’t happen in one year and our leaders are doing what they can to pick up from where our past government left. Nobody wants to actually understand what is going on, nobody wants to hear or see the little progress or changes happening in some areas. BUT the moment there is bad news, the whole country starts shouting and complaining! Buhari is a human being too, he will make mistakes. Men have said worse about women but because he is president he is shouldnt be exempt from making mistakes? I dont understand. Nigerians too dey complain and cry but they cannot do anything to help our situation! Pray for Buhari and stop shouting! Try and gain knowledge and understand why the economy is falling apart. It is falling apart so it can get back on it’s feet again – u have to dismantle a house to rebuild it, dont you? Let us get rid of the habit of focusing on the bad things only! There is a good side to Buhari but you people don’t care to know about it, all you enjoy talking about is his bad sides as if any of you are perfect.
