Northern leaders taken aback as Aisha Buhari shocks the world, endorses Osinbajo For President.
Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has endorsed Yemi Osinbajo’s Presidency, following the ailment that has befallen her sick husband, President Muhamamdu Buhari.
This came as a rude shock, as Aisha said that the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has developed the ability to lead Nigeria in line with the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and ensure that a better Nigeria is realized.
She stated this on Wednesday, in four consecutive tweets published on her handle, @aishambuhari, to hail Osinbajo on his 60th birthday.
Mrs. Buhari wrote: “On the occasion of the birthday of Your Excellency, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Ag. President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I wish to extend my congratulations to you and to state that the years you have spent building your reputation in multiple capacities, have today resulted in your ability to carry out your duties in line with the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to ensure that a better Nigeria is realized. Congratulations and Happy Birthday @ProfOsinbajo”.
Aisha has never hidden get disdain for some of the closest people around Buhari who she claimed hijacked her husband and prevented him from implementing people oriented programs. The fear now is that with this endorsement, Osinbajo is gaining more support even from the most unlikely source which is Buhari’s home base.
Recall, that Aisha caused an uproar last year, with an interview with the BBC Hausa service, where she criticized her husband for being taken hostage by a cabal, warning that if the trend continued, she would be unable to seek for votes for him in 2019.
