Wife of the President, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday stunned her audience when she revealed that two men in her husband’s government were obstructing the administration’s progress.
She regretted that but for the duo the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government would have achieved more. The men, according to her, would never allow things to move fast.
She made the revelation at the National Women Leadership Summit organised by a group, Project 4+4, which is seeking support for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in 2019. The event was held at the National Women Development Center, Abuja.
The president’s wife, who did not disclose the names of the men, said she was dismayed at the disposition of some Nigerians who, rather than fight the two, crawl to them at night to curry favour.
In an emotionally laden voice, Mrs. Buhari added: “I have realised that Senator Babafemi Ojudu, SA political to the president, and Dr. Hajo Sani, my aide Sajo, and Wife of the Vice President Mrs. Osinbajo are not comfortable with my saying this and want me to confine myself to my prepared speech but we must say the truth.”
She urged women to vote massively and return the APC to power and encouraged them to spread the news of accomplishments by the government. She also called for a minute’s silence in honour of soldiers that died fighting the insurgency.
She commended the political group for organising the summit and setting the tone for other Buhari support groups.
Also speaking at the event, the wife of the Vice President Dolapo Osinbajo commended women for providing a permanent support base for the APC. She urged them to keep supporting the party to achieve a better Nigeria for them and their children.
Earlier, the national coordinator of Project 4+4, Comrade Garba Musa Bello, explained that the purpose of the summit was to bring together women from the country’s 774 local government areas and give them a strategy for the campaign.
