Wife of Nigeria’s president, Aisha Buhari, has reassured Nigerians of her commitment to the success of her husband, Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The statement is sequel to the very controversial interview she granted BBC Hausa, where the First Lady revealed that some undisclosed cabals had hijacked her husband’s government.
Aisha, in the interview, had said she would not support the President’s bid for re-election in 2019 unless he quickly retraced his steps.
Mrs. Buhari, who spoke on Thursday during the flag off of distribution of relief items to displaced rural women in Benisheik, Borno State, thanked the people for giving her husband the opportunity to fulfil some of his campaign promises to the people of Borno.
“On our campaign promises to Nigerians, especially to the people of Borno State, we thank Almighty Allah for giving us the opportunity of beginning to fulfill these promises,” said Mrs. Buhari.
“That is the essence of being a good leader; when you promise, you try to fulfill your promises.
“That is what we are all after. And what I am after in particular is the success of my husband’s administration. And we can’t do it alone, except with the help of the governors, their wives and members of our progressive party and all Nigerians.
“As you are all aware, some weeks ago, I had launched a component of my programme, Future Assured, known as Get Involved, which is aimed at bringing all Nigerians together; and it has integrated and united the people of Nigeria.
“The launching of Future Assured has consolidated and united the people of Nigeria. The relief items you are seeing today were received from well-meaning Nigerians who sent their regards and congratulatory messages.
“It is on that note that I am here today to flag off the distribution of the food items donated by well-meaning Nigerians from across the country. I thank all Nigerians for this support for the people of Borno State,” she added.
