Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has called on Nigerians to stand up to the two people who are allegedly hindering the progress of this administration.
Mrs Buhari made the damning claim at a national women leadership summit organised by Project 4+4 for Buhari &Osinbajo 2019, a political group.
Although she did not mention names, she said the two men have dominated a government which emerged through the votes of over 15 million people.
“Our votes were 15.4 million in the last elections and after that only for us to be dominated by two people… this is totally unacceptable,” she said.
“If 15.4 million people can bring in a government and only for the government to be dominated by two people or three people, where are the men of Nigeria? Where are the Nigerian men? What are you doing? Instead of them to come together and fight them, they keep visiting them one after the other licking their shoes (I’m sorry to use those words).”

It remains to be seen if Nigerian men, and indeed all of Nigerians, will take up the gauntlet and set aright the course of the nation in 2019.
