Nigerians continue to comment on the public exchange of words between members of the country’s first family.
TheSheet.ng reported that wife of the President, Aisha Buhari had, in an interview with the Hausa service of the BBC, criticised her husband’s appointments adding that if the present situation in the country persists, she would not support him for re-election in 2019.
President Muhamadu Buhari has since responded to his wife’s outburst saying that her place belongs to his kitchen, his sitting room as well as the other room.
Reacting, a former Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Rowland Owie said that Aisha Buhari was right to have said that if her husband continues the way he was going with regards to appointment, she will not go and campaign for him in 2019, but the medium she used in making her points known was wrong.
According to Senator Owie, as the President’s wife, she would have said same to the President at home, even if it means during bedtime.
He added that if his wife does a similar thing like the President’s wife, he would have sent the woman packing to her father’s house.
Senator Owie said, “Aisha is right in criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointments, but the medium she adopted is very wrong.
“Such advice from a wife to a husband should be given at Bed time and not to the hearing of anybody.
“If a wife does that to me, the woman will return to her parent’s house within 24 hours of that statement. A Benin Parable says- Only one’s enemy that will advise one in the presence of The Oba in council.”
