Earlier yesterday, President Muhammadu Buhari reacted to the interview his wife Aisha Buhari granted the BBC, where she said she may not support his re-election bid in 2019.
Buhari, who laughed off his initial statement, further told the reporters that he hopes his wife will remember that he ran for the office of president three times before succeeding on the fourth attempt.
Well, President Buhari’s reply to his wife Aisha from far away Germany has been attracting some reactions on the social media, with many against it. Consequently, Mr President’s spokesman, Garba Shehu has come out to douse the tension, saying it was all a joke. His words:
He said people shouldn’t take the statement serious, that President Buhari was throwing a banter.
