Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has told Nigerians who to vote for in Saturday’s presidential election.
Speaking while presenting empowerment packs to 1,250 women and youths from the six area councils of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja, Mrs Buhari urged Nigerians to choose between wealth and poverty.
A statement by her media adviser Adebisi, Olumide Ajayi quoted her as saying that “poverty is one of the indices that encourage people to embrace vices like terrorism, kidnapping, and begging.”
Nigerians, in reaction to the statement, said the first lady used the words wealth and poverty to describe the Peoples Democratic Presidential Candidate, PDP, Atiku Abubakar and the president.
Recall that the president’s wife few days ago caused a stir on the social media after she referred to her husband as ‘GMB’ (General Muhammadu Buhari) instead of ‘PMB’ (President Muhammadu Buhari) after the president had said those who steal ballot boxes do so at the risk of their lives.
