Wife of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha has said her criticisms of the actions and inactions of the administration being led by her was “a result of my sense of justice”.
She spoke at the 2017 Vanguard Awards where she was honoured as Vanguard Personality of the Year 2017. The wife of the President who was represented by Halima, one of her daughters, emphasized that her criticisms were not meant to ridicule the administration of her husband, but because she was raised to always stand by the truth.
Aisha said, “I need to state that my position was a result of my sense of justice and not confrontation or disrespect. I was brought up to stand by the truth and this is how I have always been.
As we are all aware, Nigerians elected this administration based on the trust and confidence they have on my husband; I, therefore, feel that we are here to serve Nigeria to the best of our ability. Let me use this opportunity to state that I support my husband in this call to service and will continue to do so.”
Mrs. Buhari had in an interview in 2016 with BBC said if the administration of President Buhari continued with its way of governance, she was not going to support his second term bid if he decides to run.
