Nigerians react as Aisha Buhari blasts APC, Oshiomhole over conduct of primary elections
Nigerians have reacted to Aisha Buhari’s condemnation of the primary elections conducted by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in some states.
DAILY POST has reported that Aisha in a post on her verified Twitter page on Sunday, expressed disappointment over the processes employed by the ruling party during the exercise.
She, therefore, called on Nigerians to speak out against such impunity employed by ruling party leadership.
Reacting, Nigerians on social media expressed divergent opinions over her comment.
While some applauded her for speaking out, others accused her of criticizing the process because her brother lost the APC Adamawa State governorship primary.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST
@kennydenz, “I don’t think there will be better or more qualified person other than the wife of the ruling president to publicly criticize the atrocities happening in APC. Let me see all these rats that are been given money to buy data come and bash her here. She just said that she is tired.”
@Jupoce2, “Madam, have you spoken about the election rigging of your party in Ekiti and Osun States?”
@etokoskia1, “You will always be remembered for that First Lady that will always speak her mind no matter how it looks. May God guide and protect you my first Lady
@aishambuhari “An igbo adage says you wear a basket on your face and talk to a Goliath when it gets so bad and everyone is silent.”
@chimajerryj40, “Our activist First Lady. The president is the leader of the party, his word is more like final in the APC. You didn’t mention him all through. Why mention the party chairman when you know there are so many centripetal and centrifugal forces higher than him in the party? “
@Imohons, “Madam Aisha Buhari’s conscience is cut from the same fabric as that of late Maryam Babangida. Unlike the thousands of sycophants around her husband, the President’s wife speaks truth to power. Posterity, for her sake, will look kindly at her children.”
@Osi_suave, “You are married to the President and you enjoy the benefits of this marriage. But every time rather than sort your differences internally. You blindside and ridicule him and his party at every turn. Yet you won’t leave Aso Rock or give up any of the benefits you enjoy.
@ogbeniDipo, “Aisha Buhari needs to speak more on important issues like the education sector, health sector, kidnapped girls and women, and the poverty that has ravaged Nigeria; not just on personal issues she deems priority.”
@iamfemijoeseph, “Aisha Buhari always criticizing this government. Today she said APC is corrupt, has she forgotten that her husband is running under that party.
My concerns now are: Is she going to plea to Nigerians to vote her husband? Will she ask Nigerians not to vote for him? Vote Wisely.”
@boluxxx, “So the summary of Aisha Buhari’s thread is “Do not vote for my husband and his party because they don’t have sense like that.”
@Adeyanjudeji, “Aisha Buhari is wailing but I refuse to be distracted. Focused on the PDP primaries. She says APC is a useless party.”
@kelvin_odanz,” Aisha Buhari has spent 3 years telling Nigerians that her husband is a puppet under the claws of a cabal and you folks keep making a joke out of it.”
