Aisha Buhari's interview vindicates me - Saraki

Nigerian Senate president, Bukola Saraki, on Friday, October 14, said that he has been vindicated by the recent outburst of Mrs Aisha Buhari over the leadership of her husband.

Saraki said the fact that Buhari’s wife could come out to openly express reservations about her husband’s appointees showed that his earlier argument that the government had been hijacked, was in good faith.

On June 27, 2016, the Senate president alleged that there is a government within President Muhammadu Buhari’s government using their executive powers to persecute the leadership of the Senate.

Saraki’s comments were disclosed by a tweet posted by his media aide, Bamikole Omisore, on Friday morning.

But in an recent interview with BBC Hausa, Mrs. Buhari appears to have agreed with Saraki’s position.

 She criticised her husband’s choices of cabinet members and heads of agencies, saying Buhari packed his cabinet with people he barely knew, suggesting that the government had been hijacked.

She said: “The president does not know 45 out of 50, for example, of the people he appointed and I don’t know them either, despite being his wife of 27 years.”

Mrs Buhari said her husband has not told her whether he would contest the 2019 election, but said she will not partake in any of his campaigns if things continue this way till the next election.
