The First Lady expressed appreciation to her husband, President Buhari for the approval of six aides to her office.
Mrs. Buhari expressed her feelings on Wednesday when she received wives of governors who visited her at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
This is coming barely two days after the spat between Aisha Buhari and Fatima Abdulmutallib, the daughter of President Buhari’s cousin, Mamman Daura, over a video that emerged showing the wife of the president in a very angry mood, shouting at the Daura’s and complaining about being denied access to an apartment at the Presidential Villa.
