Members of the House of Representatives on Sunday gave their support to wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, for speaking out on happenings in the All Progressives Congress, APC, led administration. They urged President Muhammadu Buhari to heed the counsel of his wife.
Chairman of the House Committee on Legislative Budget, Timothy Golu, said what Aisha told BBC in the interview was deep and should not be ignored.
Speaking to Vanguard, he said; “She’s drawing her husbands attention to issues that sycophants around him would not tell him. But she has come out with the truth and is saying it because she loves the husband,”.
“She is closer to the man (Buhari) more than any other person and since she has voiced this out, the husband should take it and review some of his actions and decisions.
“It will not be good for the President to ignore the complaints from the wife. She has been with him and is disturbed by certain things happening around the husband, so it’s natural for her to talk”,.
Also, Johnson Agbonayinma of Egor/Ikpoba Okha Federal constituency, said the first lady’s interview had confirmed the fear that the administration of Buhari had been hijacked by a cabal.
The lawmaker called on Nigerian women to support Aisha in her campaign to save Nigeria from the hands of a few selfish individuals.
