“Buhari Was Joking About Aisha Belonging To His Kitchen Comment” – Garba Shehu

The spokesman to President Buhari, Mallam Garba Shehu, has said Nigeria’s Number 1 man was joking with the statement on his wife’s role in the “kitchen, living room, and the other room”. In a series of tweets, Shehu said,”My friends, can’t a leader get a sense humour anymore? Mr. President laughed before that statement was made. He was obviously throwing a banter.

Politics sometimes should be spiced with humour. Those of us close to him knows there is never a dull moment with him. Mr. President respects the place of women in our society. He believes in the abilities of women. One of Nigeria’s most sensitive office today is headed by a woman, Mrs. Adeosun. This is an evidence of the confidence he reposes on women.”

Recall President Buhari had in a brief chat with reporters in Germany today responded to his wife’s BBC interview that,“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”

Buhari, who laughed off his initial statement, further told the reporters that he hopes his wife will remember that he ran for president three times before succeeding on the fourth attempt. In his words, “So I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition, because in the end I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.”shehu

    I know it had to b a joke though. I think people are reacting because they think as a Northerners baba would likely mean something like that.
