Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has lamented that she lacks bed times conversation with her husband owing to the fact that both of them are busy trying to fix the nation.
She said it is the reason why she is angry and can’t stop “talking”.
Aisha stated this while featuring as a guest on ‘journalists Hangout’, a programme aired on Television Continental (TVC).
KanyiDaily recalls that Aisha recently called out the president’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, for meddling in the affairs of her family and supporting the cabal which she alleges has hijacked her husband’s presidency.
Asked if she gets to raise some of these issues with the president during “pillow talk”, Aisha said “There is no pillow in the villa.”
She was also asked “not even in the other room”, an allusion to her husband’s statement in 2016 that “she belongs in my kitchen and my living room and the other room”.
She again, replied “no”.
According to her, their tight schedule denied her such opportunities with her husband.
Aisha added that if members of the cabinet carried out their responsibilities as expected, then she and her husband can rest, and she would not have to keep on commenting on issues.
“There is no pillow in the villa. No, because we are always busy listening to one story or another. I think the people he puts in the cabinet, they should just sit up and do the needful. That is why it is not good to have godfatherism.
“We just have to choose the right people to be at the right places so that we would rest, so that the first lady should stop talking,” Aisha said.
She, however, vowed not to stop expressing her views in the public, saying nobody would stop her from doing so.
When queried if she was ever asked to stop talking in the public, Aisha said, “Who will stop me? Everybody is talking in the country; nobody is stopping me.
“Nigerian people believe in my husband’s ideology and he fought for it for 12 years. When we got to this place, it is not because we are the richest or educated or handsome.
“We are there (Aso Rock) due to the trust and confidence that they have in us. So, I feel indebted to the Nigerian masses to continue defending them as the wife of the president.”
