Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari has said bad people have taken over Nigeria from those that should be in charge.
Mrs. Aisha revealed this in a television program today via a phone-in interview on Television Continental (TVC)’s “Journalists Hangout.”
According to her, it is sad that the people who should be in charge are silent while some persons use social media to ridicule the government.
She added that fake news has caused her some pain especially when rumor had it that her husband died and when reports said he was set to get married.
Her words on the rumored wedding, “I didn’t take it seriously because even my husband didn’t know what was happening,”
“Both of us didn’t know what was happening; they just decided to bombard social media with it. They are now taking to social media to bring down the government itself.
“I think that we should not allow people that are nothing to override the innocent; I don’t know why people that are supposed to be in charge should remain mute while bad people take over the country from us. It is impossible and totally unacceptable.”
“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?”
