Aisha Buhari, the First Lady of Nigeria, has gotten more than she bargained for from Nigerians after she advised that parents should stay at home with their kids to avoid contracting coronavirus.
Aisha Buhari who took to Twitter with her advice was slammed by Nigerians who questioned to know what her husband has put in place as provision for those she’s advising to quit their work and stay at home.
She tweeted: “It is commendable that state governors have closed down schools; however, this could be counterproductive if parents are still going to work. We should not isolate students and expose their parents. Let us remember that they will meet at home. #TotalLockDown #StayAtHome.”
