President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife,Aisha Buhari on Saturday said she was on a week-long visit to the US to hold discussions with ‘aid organizations’ who help women and children facing starvation in the north eastern part of Nigeria.
Mrs. Buhari , in an interview spoke with the Hausa service of the Voice of America, VOA.
“Our children in the various camps are in desperate situation and therefore the government cannot do it alone, we have to get help,” she said.
Mrs. Buhari, during her visit had met with several organisations notable for promoting peace and provision of aids to displaced children.
The President’s Wife added she started paying close attention to the problem after recent revelations which indicated women and children were dying of hunger in some Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps in Borno State.
Why I Sued Fayose
Mrs. Buhari also said she sued Ekiti State Governor, Governor Ayodele Fayose, because of his incessant attacks and false allegations against her for no reason.
She said Mr. Fayose had been insulting her and the president since the 2015 presidential campaign for no reason.
“At the time, he was not the only one insulting us, but people felt that it was simply campaign,” Mrs. Buhari said.
“After the election, which we won and they lost everyone else moved on except him and he extended his insults to me.
“I did not run for president. I am a wife and i have never mentioned his name. I never knew him, but as governor and chief executive of Ekiti State. He kept insulting and raising false allegations against me, I even have to reply and i decided to go to court.
“He made allegations over what he said I did here in US, despite the fact that I have never met the people he mentioned.”
Similarly, Fayose had dared Mrs. Buhari to go to the United States after he accused her of having been indicted in William Jefferson bribery scandal.
The governor insisted the Mrs Buhari’s was mentioned in the scam even when newspapers investigation showed clearly she was not the Aisha Buhari mentioned in the case.
