Evil people have taken over Nigeria from President Buhari, says Aisha Buhari

The first lady, Aisha Buhari recently declared that “bad people” have taken over the country from those who are “supposed to be in charge”.

The wife of the President said this during a phone-in interview on Television Continental (TVC)’s ‘Journalists Hangout’ programme on Thursday.

Speaking during the interview, Mrs Buhari said those who are meant to be in charge of the government are mute while social media is being used by some individuals to bring down the government.

She stressed that social media has caused some problems in the country like when her husband was rumoured to have died, and recently, when it was rumoured that her husband was taking a second wife.

“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.” As for presidential aides and other government officials, she accused them of being silent when they should be responding to and focusing on things that the president has no business in.
