President Buhari, Nigeria President has literally mocked his wife that she belongs in the Kitchen. Aisha Buhari in a recent interview with the BBC Hausa-language service broadcast said that her husband did not know many top government appointees accusing them of not sharing the vision of his All Progressives Congress party. In some of her comments, she said
“He is yet to tell me [whether he will run again in 2019], but I have decided as his wife that if things continue like this up to 2019, I will not go out and campaign again and ask any woman to vote like I did before. I will never do it again.”
However, reacting to his wife comment, Muhammadu Buhari also said he hopes his wife will remember that he ran for president three times before succeeding on the fourth effort. So I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition because in the end, I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.”
“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.” President Muhammadu Buhari declared.
It should be recalled that Aisha Buhari, a mother, and grandmother, has a master’s degree in international affairs and strategic studies from the Nigerian Defense Academy and studied at beauty schools in the United Kingdom and Dubai. She is currently undertaking a counseling course on co-dependency in the U.K.
BaretaNews notes that the time in which women belongs only in the Kitchen has passed. However, BaretaNews can liken these comments to the popular US series called House of Cards. It reveals how Francis Underwood of South Carolina stood out as a ruthless politician and finally became US President. He would then move on and secretly planned with his wife, an environmental activist, to make a pact to destroy his opposition figures and their allies. This could be exactly the same scenario being played in Nigeria politics in real time where the wife comes out as opposing his husband so as to gain Nigerians love while secretly planning behind to deal with those who are standing in the ways of the President.
God is still saying something.
