Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has blamed her husband’s slow progress on two individuals in government.
Mrs Buhari said her husband would have performed better than he did but for the two powerful men who are hindrances to his progress.
She stated this while speaking at a National Women Leadership Summit organised by a political group, Project 4+4 for Buhari & Osinbajo 2019, in Abuja.
The first lady expressed disappointment in some politicians who rather than fight the two men will go to them in the night begging for favour.
Recall that the president’s wife had earlier said that Buhari’s government had been hijacked by only a “few people”, known as cabals who were behind presidential appointments.
Her words: “The president does not know 45 out of 50 of the people he appointed and I don’t know them either, despite being his wife of 27 years. “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 name those who had hijacked the government, the First Lady simply said: “You will know them if you watch television.” Asked whether the president was in charge, Mrs. Buhari had said: “That is left for the people to decide.”
