Reacting to Aisha Buhari’s controversial BBC interview, former Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Rowland Owie today said if his wife went public to criticize him the way Aisha Buhari did to her husband, in her BBC Hausa interview, he would send her packing from his house. In an interview with Vanguard, Owie said although what Aisha Buhari said was right, it could have been said in the bedroom when she had some private time with her husband.
“Aisha is right in criticism of President Buhari’s appointments, but the medium she adopted is very wrong. Such advice from a wife to a husband should be given at Bed time and not to the hearing of anybody. If a wife does that to me, the woman will return to her parent’s house within 24 hours of that statement. A Benin Parable says- Only one’s enemy that will advise one in the presence of The Oba in council.”he said
While Official Spokesperson to President Buhari, Garba Shehu has defended the President’s choice of words in describing his wife while in Berlin, Germany today. In the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Buhari while reacting to his wife Aisha’s interview with BBC Hausa, where she claims that his government has been hijacked by those who didn’t campaign for him, laughed off her allegations, saying, “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”
Shehu however says it’s all banter and a leader is free to have a sense of humour.
