Why I may not support my husband's re-election - First Lady

The President's wife has expressed frustrations about her husband's government, claiming it has been hijacked.

 

According to her, the President's government has been hijacked by a "few people."

Speaking in a BBC interview, she revealed that her husband "does not know" most of the top officials in his government, suggesting that a 'powerful caucus' is behind the presidential appointments.

"The president does not know 45 out of 50, for example, of the people he appointed and I don't know them either, despite being his wife of 27 years,"Aisha Buhari said.

She said people who have been appointed to top positions do not even share the vision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) but they got the appointments because of the influence a select few wield.

"Some people are sitting down in their homes folding their arms only for them to be called to come and head an agency or a ministerial position," she said.

When asked to mention names of those who have hijacked the Buhari administration, she said: "You will know them if you watch television."

She noted that although the President has not made his 2019 ambition known to her, she will not campaign for him if he decides to run.

"He is yet to tell me but I have decided as his wife, that if things continue like this up to 2019, I will not go out and campaign again and ask any woman to vote like I did before. I will never do it again," Mrs Buhari vowed.
