Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has flayed alleged moves by some powerful forces to divide All Progressives Congress, APC, saying they could not countermand the mandate vested in her husband by 15 million Nigerians.
Mrs. Buhari was quoted in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service as also saying that Nigerians, who voted for the President, knew those causing problems for the administration.
Responding to comments that those who canvassed the change mantra had been left out of government, she said: “This worries us a lot now, because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but are nowhere today.
“Those who didn’t do anything who don’t even have voters’ cards are the ones in position, doing everything.”
The President’s wife was also quoted to have said: “What I am afraid for them is the rebellion of 15 million people.”
Responding to a question on whether her husband had sufficient knowledge of the identity of those at the centre of the controversies, she said: “Whether he knows or not, those who voted for him know.
“He can see. Among all the people he selected, if he is asked among 50 people, he doesn’t know 45. I don’t know them despite staying with him for 25 years.”
