Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has alleged that she has not received any gift from anyone since her husband assumed office as the number one citizen of the country, warning those who would want to gift her this season to perish the thought.
Mrs. Buhari made this revelation at the lauching of a new campaign against graft tagged, “Women Against Corruption” in Abuja, on Wednesday.
According to her, she did not also intend to collect gifts as the wife of the president even in the future.
She said, “People have been trying to bring some gift items to me but I have not been collecting them. Right from when I was campaigning with the Wife of the Vice President for our husbands, we did not take a dime from anyone and we have continued like that till today.
“I have never collected any gift and I am not ready to do so even in the future,” she said, and received thunderous applause from the audience made up of top government officials, Nigerians women and businessmen.
Aisha recently sparked controversy when she openly came out to criticize the government of her husband.
She had declared that Buhari “does not know” most of the top officials he appointed, and that the government had been hijacked by some persons deciding presidential appointments.
