Aisha attacks presidency again


The first lady, Aisha Buhari, has again thrown shade at the presidency.

Mrs Buhari poured a thinly veiled vitriol at the presidency on Thursday when she granted a Television Continental (TVC)’s ‘Journalists Hangout’ programme, an interview on phone.

Speaking against the backdrop of her call for the regulation of the social media, Aisha accused her spouse’s handlers of incompetence saying they lost their voice when it was important but found it when it was unnecessary.

Her word: “Whenever they (presidential aides) are supposed to take action against the offenders, or to take action or to take charge or be in control, or caution people, they keep mute but when it comes to unnecessary things, people will start talking of the presidency.

“A typical example is what happened after the election in Bayelsa state. When the PDP came out and said they would … suspend His Excellency, Goodluck Jonathan, the former president, for doing wrong or something like that.

“I have seen no reason why (the) presidency should come out and say that they were shocked to hear that. Is it their business? Are they PDP members? Is President Jonathan a member of our party? What does that have to do with the presidency?”
