Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha has encouraged Nigerians especially men to seek ways of rescuing governance at the centre from the control of just two or three persons she did not name.

She said these few persons are responsible for the inability of her husband, the president to meet the expectations of the masses in terms of performance in office.

She was addressing an audience at a national women leadership summit organized by a political group known as “project 4+4 for Buhari and Osinbajo, 2019.

According to Mrs. Buhari, although 15 million Nigerians voted for Mr. Buhari in 2015, only two or three persons have since taken control of the government.

She recalled the massive votes her husband received in 2015 saying, “our votes were over 15 million in the last election, and after that only for us to be dominated by 2 people that hinder collective team work that we started, which is totally unacceptable”.

The president’s wife also berated the men in Nigeria for allowing the situation to remain as it is. In her words, “if 15.4 million people can bring in a government and only for the government to be dominated by two people, where are the men of Nigeria? What are you doing? Instead of them to come together and fight them, they kept visiting them one after the other licking their shoes, I am sorry to use that word”.

She decried the lateness of the administration to be able to achieve something substantial. She said it was unfortunate that people began to list the achievements of Mr. President in the 4th year of his government when that should have happened in the 1st year and blamed it on lack of team work.

Mrs. Buhari said the reason she complained about those two influential persons she would not name was because of the future generation, to allow people to participate irrespective of where they were coming from.

In the early days of her husband’s administration, Aisha was quoted to have cried out about the hijack of the government by “the cabal”, a situation that has seemingly not improved according to her latest outburst.

Mr. Reno Omokiri, former Aide to Former President Goodluck Jonathan among many other Nigerians has applauded the courage of the First Lady. He tweeted in his verified official handle, “ FREE ADVISE TO @Official APCNg, They are fielding the WRONG Buhari and I don’t mean Buhari from Sudan because #BuhariIsNotaClone. If APC wants to win 2019 elections, they should field @AishaMBuhari instead of @MBuhari. Aisha is more of a man than Buhari ever was!
