President Muhammadu Buhari has responded to the statement made by his wife, Aisha in a BBC interview during which she said, she may not support him if he runs again.
President Buhari, who is on an official visit to Germany reacted during a joint press briefing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
According to The Associated Press, asked to comment on his wife’s views, Buhari said; “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.”
It shows that the man has no respect for his wife. As far as he is concerned the place of the woman is the kitchen
He even lumped her with the rest of the opposition. In his mind Aisha now belong to the opposition. God help you, Aisha
Let us say the truth, no African man will accept what Aisha did from his wife. It is wrong for her to criticize her husband openly
She must have been frustrated to voice out her pains. African men must learn to respect their wives
“His comments prompted German Chancellor Angela Merkel, standing at his side, to give him a short glare and then laughed”
In Merkel’s mind, this must be a very Bush man.
You people are haters. Buhari haters
Aisha is now one of the wailers
What a shame! In this modern era, Buhari is saying his wife belong to the kitchen. It shows his mind set. A man who has no regard for women
I see domestic war
Where are the Buhari attack dogs. Oya attack Aisha.
Buhari should have just kept quiet
It is very bad, what the President said, especially beside a Female Head of another Country. Hear this story. President Obama at the prompting of the wife went to visit the restaurant of a man in one of the States in the US. Michele once dated him as a spinster. When they got there, Obama said ” so if you hadn’t married me you would have been the proud wife of a restaurant owner in this beautiful country side.” The wife answered him, “I would still have been the wife of the President of America.” When are we going to learn to cherish what God has given us?
Very unfortunate comment indeed.
