Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, yesterday, revealed that her husband would have performed better, but for two powerful individuals.
Mrs. Buhari said there are two men in President Buhari’s administration who have constituted themselves as hindrance for the speedy progress of governance.
The President’s wife said that she is disappointed in men who rather than fight these two men will go to them in the night begging for favour.
The President’s wife, who spoke at a National Women Leadership Summit, in Abuja, however, did not mention the names of the powerful persons.
She noted that if not for the two powerful men, Buhari’s achievements in the last three and a half years would have been accomplished by the President in one year. .
She stated that the two people in government would never allow things to move fast. The First Lady, however, stated that the President has done well in the delivery of good governance. .
When the Political Adviser to the President, Senator Babafemi Ojodu, was signalling to the First Lady to move away from the topic, she said: “I have realised that Senator Ojodu, and Dr. Hajo Sani, my aide, Sajo, and wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Osinbajo, are not comfortable with me saying this and want me to confine myself to my prepared speech, but we must say the truth.”
The President’s wife insisted that the two powerful people are retrogressive elements preventing the government from moving forward.
