President Muhammadu Buhari’s kinsmen have faulted the first lady, Aisha Buhari, over her Wednesday’s statement, which attacked the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Garba Shehu.
Buhar’s kinsmen in an interview with The Pumch Newspaper in Katsina, on Wednesday evening, criticized the first lady for making what they described as purely private family affair, public.
Recall that the first lady in the statement on Wednesday morning, said, “It was Garba Shehu, who claimed that the government would not allow the office of the first lady to run. He was later to confirm to one of my aides that he was instructed to say so by Mamman Daura and not the President. This antic attracted the anger of Nigerian women. He didn’t realize the fact that the first lady’s office is a tradition which has become an institution.”
Reacting on the statement by Aisha Buhari, residents of Daura, the home town of the President, said the first lady should have reported the matter to her husband, instead of going public.
