Several reactions have trailed the first lady, Aisha Buhari’s interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC Hausa Service in which she blew hot and criticized the President, Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Reacting to the media outburst, a Southeast leader and former governor of the old Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife while speaking to Sunday Sun described the outburst as nothing short of divine inspiration.
He further noted that the first lady has done both Nigerians and Buhari a great favour by exposing the cabals within his administration.
He said: “I have read some reactions already. I think in my judgment, the lady, Aisha, has done a great favour for both Buhari and Nigerians. For Buhari, she has let people know that what is happening in government is not all Buhari’s fault.
“Anybody who takes what is happening in government as order from Buhari will not have much respect for him because what he is going on doesn’t reflect intellect or even conscience. But now, we know that the people who are controlling the affairs of the country are not the people Nigerians gave their mandate to. Buhari cannot be as poor in judgment as what we are seeing happening from the seat of power.”
He further added that “Nigerians can be more forgiving now than before.”
Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife commended Aisha Buhari for her courage in exposing the corrupt cabals in the corridor of the Muhammadu Buhari government adding that the exposure has gone a long way in relieving Nigerians who are already doubting their choice to have voted the president into power.
He said: “I sympathize with both of them because the issue is made public. But they should forgive each other and see what has happened as a divine inspiration. It has relieved Nigerians of the worst of thinking that they had elected somebody who did not deserve to be elected.”
Ezeife however encouraged the president to listen to his wife and make amends in his government.
“The president needs to do many things right. The president has to compensate the Southeast for not being appointed appropriately. Today, as I am talking to you now, there is no single Igbo in the National Security Council.”
