A former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has challenged the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, to explain to Nigerians what had happened to the cabal she alleged had hijacked her husband’s government.
Fayose in a statement on Sunday, January 6, by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, faulted Aisha for campaigning for the reelection of her husband after claiming on several occasions that a cabal controlling her husband’s government made it to fail, The Punch reports.
“In October 2016, the First Lady told Nigerians the truth about the incapacitation of her husband and went on to say that should things continue till 2019 like they were in 2016, she would not go out to campaign for him and ask any woman to vote like she did before,” he said.
“In December last year, she reinforced this position by claiming that a cabal controlling her husband’s government made it to fail. This is January 2019 and the question the First Lady must be asked is; what positive change has Buhari’s government made on Nigeria and its people between 2016 and now?
The former governor asked if the First Lady was campaigning with the intent to subject Nigerians to another four years rule under the same cabal she had accused of hijacking her husband’s government.
He demanded to know what Aisha Buhari will tell women whose husbands and children suffered from violent attacks by herdsmen or those women whose husbands lost their jobs in the last three years. He said rather than wasting public funds campaigning for the president, the First Lady should assist her husband leave governance.
