… Buhari’s comment insult to women – PDP youth frontiers
…. Buhari hates women – Senator Olulimi
An Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ismail IllyasuMangu, has called on security agencies to arrest the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, “because her interview is capable of inciting millions of Nigerians against her husband.”
The cleric, who was speaking at to hundreds of worshipers after the Jumaat prayer, on Friday claimed that mrsBuhari’s in the interview she granted the BBC Hausa Service amounted to security to threat and should be treated accordingly.
“It is a threat to the peace of the country and we do hope the security agencies will immediately arrest her. We are sad about the interview granted by the wife of the President. We believe that opposition members in the country are using her against the government.
“Her statement is unfair and capable of inciting violence. We believed that some ungrateful elements in the country are using the wife of the president to tarnish the image of the president and the country. Nigerians are not in her support. ”
Nigerian Pilot Sunday recalls that MrsBuhari had in the interview said: “The president does not know 45 out of 50 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 said.
Consequently, President Buhari had during a press conference in Germany said: “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to,” he quipped , “but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room,” comments which have generated public condemnation.
Meanwhile, Peoples Democratic Party National Youth Frontiers, PDPNYF, has slammed President Buhari for reportedly describing his wife, Aisha Buhari as a kitchen material. The PDP youth group also said the comment by Buhari has taken the country back to archaic days.
The group through its National Coordinator, UsmanOkai Austin said “The outbursts of the president’s wife about his posture to governance is quite unfortunate and mismatch to the expectations of Nigerians and to worsen it, the response of President Buhari relegating his wife to his room and kitchen shows that Nigeria has been dragged to many centuries backward.
“It is unfortunate that a president who left Nigeria for Germany demeaned women right in front of Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, who happened to be a woman.”
The PDP youth group also said the comment by Buhari has taken the country back to archaic days.
Also, the Deputy Minority Whip of the Senate, Senator BiodunOlujimi, (Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ekiti South), in swift reaction has described president Buhari’s comments on his wife as an expression of hate for the womenfolks.
Senator Olujimi in a statement issued on Saturday described Buhari’s statement as a bad development stressing, “the statement is in very bad taste especially that it was said beside one of the most powerful women in the world.
“It is an x-ray of the soul: A statement of fact that reflects the composition of this government and the disdain to which women are held by the President and this government.
“We thank God that women have seen better leaders. By the way, we will not be daunted in our resolve to better our situation. It’s wake up call for us.”
