President Buhari has reportedly responded to claims by his wife, Aisha Buhari, in her yet-to-be aired interview with BBC Hausa, that his government has basically been hijacked by people who were not with them from the very start. (Read here)
In Berlin today, The Associated Press reports that President Buhari laughed off her allegations, saying,
“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”
‘His comments to reporters in Germany promoted German Chancellor Angela Merkel, standing at his side, to give him a short glare and then laugh,” Associated Press reports.
Buhari also said he hopes his wife will remember that he ran for president three times before succeeding on the fourth effort.
“So I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition, because in the end I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.”
