Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Mrs. Aishat Buhari, has succeeded the wife of Sierra Leonean president, Mrs. Sia Koroma, as the head of Africa’s first ladies in a handover shrouded in secrecy.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu in an interview he granted journalists where he debunked media reports that wife of the president, Mrs. Aishat Buhari has move…d into the First Lady’s office in the Aso Villa, made a passing reference to her recent appointment as head of Africa’s first ladies, a development that was jealously guarded by the presidency.
“Out of respect to Mrs. Aishat Buhari, the Sierra-Leonian First Lady, Mrs. Sia Koroma recently surrendered her position of head of Africa’s First Ladies to Mrs. Aishat Buhari, inviting her to take up the same seat which Mrs. Jonathan hurriedly handed over a few weeks to the handover of her husband’s government to President Buhari,” Shehu said.
If Pres. Buhari has or wants to abolish the office of The First Lady during his administration, (the media has been asked to refer to Aisha Buhari as the wife of the president and not First Lady) does it not disqualify her to head Africa’s First Lady, since she’s technically not a First Lady?
Mrs Buhari can’t be head of Africa’s First Ladies if she’s not the First Lady of Nigeria, can she?
