Buhari’s response “I am sure you have a house and you know where your kitchen is, you know where your living room is. I believe your wife looks after that, even if she is working”.

Asked if that is his wife’s function

President Buhari said, “Yes to look after me”

It would be recalled that President Buhari had said in Germany t:  “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”

His comments prompted German Chancellor Angela Merkel, standing at his side, to give him a short glare and then laughed.

In an interview with the BBC Hausa-language service broadcast Friday, Aisha Buhari said her husband did not know many top government appointees, and she accused them of not sharing the vision of his All Progressives Congress party. She did not name names.

Buhari also said he hopes his wife will remember that he ran for president three times before succeeding on the fourth effort. “So I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition, because in the end I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.”

  1. A good wife with a good husband please our country needs help in terms of leadership. Things are not walking well.

  2. Yea, but she has a right to an opinion although it is coming in a manner unprecedented in the history of Nigerian politics again it is all about the question of development of the minds of the people including women, folks! I have told or suggested what Buhari can do or consider to do if indeed her observation is true! There is no way that Buhari can ever know all personnel including advisers, that he is going to hire to work with him hence that need for a ‘National Orientation’ which they could have embarked upon earlier as I suggested it and under a strict law against corruption again as I suggested it – they have my books I suggest they can look it up!
