Against the background of the earlier position she was quoted to have taken against her husband for the 2019 Presidential election, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has now made it clear that she is fully in support of the President for the 2019.
She announced: “let me use this opportunity to state that I support my husband in this call to service and will continue to do so.”
The President’s wife, who made a short speech when she was conferred with the Honour of as Vanguard Personality of the Year 2017 in Lagos, thanked the management of Vanguard Media Limited “for this unexpected award, in recognition of my humanitarian efforts towards improving the health and welfare of Nigerians particularly women, children and less privileged.”
Mrs. Buhari was surprised that another reason adduced for the honour conferred on her by the Vanguard was the interview she granted which some people saw as criticism to a government that she has been part of.
“I need to state that my position was a result of my sense of justice and not confrontation or disrespect. I was brought up to stand by the truth and this is how I have always been.
“As we are all aware, Nigerians elected this administration based on the trust and confidence they have on my husband; I therefore feel that we are here to serve Nigeria to the best of our ability.”
Mrs. Aisha Buhari dedicated the award to the people of Nigeria, especially women. [myad]
