A “few people” are behind the appointments made by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, says his wife, Aisha.

In an interview with BBC, Aisha Buhari said she may not support her husband’s re-election bid should he fail to reshuffle his government.

“He is yet to tell me but I have decided as his wife, that if things continue like this up to 2019, I will not go out and campaign again and ask any woman to vote like I did before. I will never do it again”, she said while speaking with Naziru Mikailu.

The wife of the president also noted that certain elements who did not share the vision of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) were given political appointments because of the influence of some individuals.


“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.”

Aisha Buhari however, failed to mention the names of the people who wield such influence, saying: “You will know them if you watch television.”

When asked if Buhari was in charge of his government, she was quoted as saying, “That is left for the people to decide.”


Aisha Buhari, however, gave her husband a pass mark in his government’s efforts against Boko Haram insurgency, particularly in Maiduguri, Borno state.

“No one is complaining about being attacked in their own homes,” she said. “Thankfully everyone can walk around freely, go to places of worship, etc. Even kids in Maiduguri have returned to schools.”

    I really hope you didn’t say this madam first lady. Didn’t anyone teach the first lady that bedroom talks with hubby should not be brought to light. You didn’t call names but you publicly announced that your hubby compromised his integrity. Bad market oo
