‘Aisha Buhari did not behave like a decent housewife’ – Group

The Adamawa League of Women Empowerment has said that Aisha Buhari’s recent BBC Hausa Service interview “breached the norms and values of a decent housewife of a serving president.”

They also described it as “ill-timed and counter-productive,” saying it was critical of President Muhammadu Buhari’s approach to governance.

At a press briefing in Yola on Thursday, the women through their spokesperson, Ms. Maryam Ibrahim, said that Aisha, who is a Fulani woman from Yola, did not exhibit the character expected of a Fulani woman who should respect the traditional “Pula’aku.”

The women said Aisha’s statement had created a negative impression of her status as the wife of the President and exposed both her husband and the entire family to mockery and disrespect before Nigerians and the world at large.

They added that her action was capable of encouraging Buhari’s enemies to “assault’ him.

The statement read in part: “It is also necessary to point out that Aisha Buhari’s media outburst has breached the norms and values of a decent house wife of a serving president.

“In fact, she has set a bad precedent, as no president’s wife in Nigeria has ever exposed her husband to this state of shame and ridicule.

“However, we would like to use this forum to reiterate our total support for and cooperation with President Muhammadu Buhari in his effort to restore the lost glory of Nigeria as the giant of Africa.”

The statement continued: “It is against this backdrop, that we collectively faulted Mrs. Aisha Buhari’s BBC interview because it is ill-timed, counter-productive and was done in bad taste.

“Consequently, Mrs. Aisha Buhari’s action negates the spirit of Pula’aku, modesty and decorum which are virtues of Fulani.”

    She did what she suppose to do as a wife and a mother to Nigerians. All of you women of adamawa league of empowerment are politically biased with this statement.


  5. It’s a pity, the president wife acted that way.


  6. These group of women should let us know how they expected her to correct the President, this is a way to divide the President family more and calling for a favored attention to themselves. They should just leave them alone, why should they add more problems to them.


  7. B4 being a mother to Nigerians bcos her children are Nigerians, she is a wife to certain Buhari who by God’s grace, is now the president of Nigeria, she should always have that at the front, not back of her mind in whatever she says or does so she doesn’t bring disrespect to her family which no matter what, is her primary responsibility.


  8. For now she’s a mother to this nation. A proverb say’s behind a successful man there must be a woman. To me there is nothing bad in wife to advise his husband for the way forward


  9. These Adamawa women are crying more than the bereaved. God will soon judge any person or groups who tries to create disaffection in the solid family and home of President Muhammadu Buhari. So be warned and leave the first family alone. PMB will never be distracted by your unsolicited press conference. Get busy and let the change of attitude begin with you.
