In an interview with BBC the first lady shared her discontent with the way her husband’s led administration is running the government.
She said that her husband “does not know” most of the top officials he has appointed. She thinks that the husband’s led administration has been hijacked by saying that “few people” were behind the presidential appointments.
Aisha couldn’t keep quiet to the impunity going on in Aso Rock, so she decided to open up so that it can be put to stop before the poor masses revolt.
She also said that “The president does not know 45 out of 50 of the people he appointed and I don’t know them either, despite being his wife of 27 years”
According to BBC, she said that people who didn’t share the vision of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) were now appointed to top posts because of the influence a “few people” wield.
“Some people are sitting down in their homes folding their arms only for them to be called to come and head an agency or a ministerial position”.

When the BBC’s correspondent asked her if her husband will contest in the 2019 election, she said “He is yet to tell me but I have decided as his wife that if things continue like this up to 2019, I will not go out and campaign again and ask any woman to vote like i did before. I will never do it again”
