More breakdown of the First Lady’s revelation of Buhari’s cabinet keep pouring in as Aisha Buhari had said in the controversial interview with BBC Hausa that, out of Buhari’s cabinet, only the Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Power, Works & Housing, Babatunde Fashola and a few others are know to her and her husband Buhari.
Recall that President Buhari who is currently on a state visit to Germany has equally responded to his wife’s claims by saying she belongs to his kitchen and other rooms, a statement which further heated up the matter.
The First Lady who bared her mind as to not being happy at the way a few cabals had hijacked her husband’s government and dictate to him, said, in a number of 50, that she and perhaps her husband, Buhari does not know 45 of them.
She said, “Yes I agree. Because of those appointed, apart from Fashola, Ameachi and some others, not much, I don’t know them, most of us too don’t know them, and he too does not know them.” “More than half of those people are not appointed into the government. Some people that are not politicians, not professionals were brought into the government. They don’t even know what we said we want and what we don’t during the campaign.
They even come out and say to people, we are not politicians, but they are occupying the offices meant for politicians.” “Everybody knows them. Those people should know that people voted singly. Even Buhari too had one vote. Nobody voted 5 times. 15.429 Million People. That one that people are thinking too, he had only some 2 or 3 people. I am pleading to them to have the people at heart and embrace everybody so that we can all move together.”
When asked weather she is not the closest to Buhari, Aisha said, “There is nothing I can tell him, he is seeing things himself. Out of the people he has appointed, take 50, 45 of them I don’t know them. Perhaps he doesn’t know them too. I have been living with him for 27 years.”
“That is what I am saying, those that know they don’t have voters card, they should give chance to those that have. They are the ones that struggled and knows what we want to do. Some of them, if you go to a meeting with them, they will tell you, we are not politicians. If somebody is wise, they will not accept to take any political office.” “Some have parted with their wives, some lost their children, some women too have parted with their husbands because of politics, a lot happened during the time. The way things are going, I too I am not happy.”
