POLITICS: “I Won't Have Office For First Lady”- Buhari Reveals

General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) retired General Muhammadu Buhari says he will not have an office for first lady if elected in next year’s election.In an exclusive interview with Weekly Trust in Kaduna, Buhari said his decision was premised on the fact there is no office of first lady in the Nigerian constitution, just as there is no official role for presidents’ wives. Rather, he said ministries which are constitutional should be allowed to play their roles. “There is the Ministry of Women Affairs, and so on”, he said. The APC flag bearer said women would however play very important roles in his administration.

“I was raised by my mother, as I lost my father when I was under six years, so I know what a woman can do if given the chance,” he said, adding that he sees them as his cornerstone. 

General Buhari also spoke on the situation in Chibok, Borno State, where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted by the terrorist group, Boko Haram and remain in their captivity. 

“Imagine a mother with a teenage daughter there and for seven months and has no clue where she is”, he said, noting that women’s effort in looking after children, apart from the pain of childbirth, aggravates the pain of losing a child.

“Roughly one year in their tummy and from the time they are born until they clock six, children tend to assume they know everything, but it is women, their mothers, who are responsible for them. I have the greatest respect for women,” he said.

Hey Mr Blogger, I dont wanna hear you broadcast this blasphemy kind of news anymore ok? Is there any constitutional law tha t state; It should be given "office of the first lady?" It is not stated anywhere in the Nigerian constitutional act of the 1999 constitutions. So please,do you know how much Federal Government reasources that is been waste on the so-call office of the firstlady? Pls and pls dont ever try to tarnish the image of this man(GMB) ok.

Emeka Solomon

A man that couldn't manage his own personal affairs well is coming to rule us, a man who has no investment, who wasted all his life savings on desperation of becoming president, jumping from one party to another with the aim of getting power by all means? He's planning to make Nigeria miserable like his life, but failure is his best friend.
