Wife of the president Aisha Buhari has lamented that two powerful persons are hindering the development efforts of the President Muhammau Buhari administration.
The president’s wife, who spoke at a conference organised by Project 4+4 in Abuja, however, did not mention names of the said persons. Dolapo Osinbajo the wife of the Vice President, attended the event.
Mrs Buhari explained that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government had achieved a lot but could have achieved more or even achieved all it had in one year but for two people in government who will never allow things to move fast.
She lamented that she was disappointed in men who rather than fight these two men will go to them in the night begging for a favour.
The wife of the president urged Nigerian women to rise and fight, saying: ”I have realised that Senator Babafemi Ojodu, Special Adviser, political, to the President, and Dr Hajo Sani, and wife of the Vice-President, Mrs Osinbajo, are not comfortable with my saying this and want me to confine myself to my prepared speech but we must say the truth.”
The First Lady, who is known for her frank talk when it comes to issues concerning her husband’s administration, had in October 2016, told the BBC in an interview, that her husband was being held hostage by a cabal.
“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.
“Some people are sitting down in their homes folding their arms only for them to be called to come and head an agency or a ministerial position,” she had said.
