#HNNPolitics Why @APCNigeria's #Buhari is AVOIDING an Office of the First Lady? #Sharia Dictatorship

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. Big deal, my father didn't have one when he was Governor for 3 mos before you yanked his democracy! So why all these FAKE publicity shots? I'm a certified PR graduate among other things.

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.

So funny! Now you can see the signs of dictatorship and Sharia filtering in. When my father was a Governor in 1983 before Buhari yanked their democracy, he did not have an actual Office of the First Lady but my mom performed duties mostly charitable ones. Now with the 1999 Constitution or not, we need a FIRST LADY to represent interests of women, men and children around the country, represent us abroad and be the MOTHER of Nigeria. Watch the coup happen soon. Just like IBB said, Buhari is too weak! The Shah of Nigeria, Ayatollah of Nigeria  does not care about you!

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. See full interview tomorrow in the Weekly Trust.
