The Nigerian First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan had made some recent comments that she is not prepared to feed her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan in prison, which was probably an insinuation that Gen. Buhari will put him in jail if he emerges the winner in the forthcoming elections. Click here if you missed it!
Aishat Buhari while speaking last week Thursday in Edo, the Benin State capital with some women in the state, responded to comments earlier made by Patience that Buhari would also jail women if elected as President, according to a report by Punch. The wife of the APC presidential candidate also said that Patience, should not entertain the fear of going to jail if Buhari is elected as president, as there are more pressing issues to be attended to that her husband would not have time to witchhunt anyone.
“For those that are campaigning, saying that he (Buhari) is coming to jail Nigerians, I don’t know what their fear is.
“But they shouldn’t be afraid because we are all yearning for change.
“The insecurity in the country, the very poor healthcare system, lack of education and other basic necessities that people are lacking, I believe Nigerians need somebody like General Muhammadu Buhari now.
“Already, they have painted him black, using religion.
“I’m happy today that Nigerians realise that they use religion as a cover to loot Nigeria,” Aishat said.
She added, “In each zone of the country, we have peculiar problems; our problems differ. For me, in this zone, girl-child trafficking should be considered (as) one of our problems, though I know that there is unemployment. Unemployment is a major factor that contributes to brain-drain and also the girl-child trafficking.
“Buhari is a leader. He was a leader; he led Nigeria some decades ago and he is coming back now to sanitise the system.”
