Why Aisha Buhari Must Stop Granting Interviews – President Buhari

President Buhari asked the BBC not to air the interview due to some things the first lady said. He also barred Aisha from granting further interview. Aisha Buhari’s interview with BBC is expected to be aired in afe days but the presidency has stepped in. President Muhammadu Buhari has started mounting pressure on the BBC Hausa Service not to air the full interview of Aisha Buhari.

Excerpts of the interview were published on Tuesday, October 11 and in it, the first lady made some comments that has caught the attention of Nigerians. In the interview, Aisha said the people who worked for her husband to become the president have been side-lined while some people have taken over his government.

“This worries us a lot now. Because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but are no where today. Those who didn’t do anything who don’t even have voters’ cards are the ones in position, doing everything.” “What I am afraid for them is the rebellion of 15 million people.” According to Sahara Reporters, the President Buhari kitchen cabinet has reached out to the BBC not to air the full interview as it is suspected that the first lady might have said more damaging things. Aisha and some members of the All Progressives Congress are frustrated especially due to the influence wielded by Abba Kyari, who is the chief of staff of the president. It was reported that minister sometimes have to get the approval of Kyari and Mamman Daura before funds can be released to them.

Meanwhile, President Buhari has vowed not to spare anyone who is corrupt and insist his children be investigated by the EFCC is suspected of corruption. This was contained in a book about the president authored by Professor John Paden. “Buhari’s attitude is to let the chips fall where they may in particular cases, although reform of the judiciary is one of his larger goals.”
