Aisha violated Fulani culture by publicly criticizing Buhari – Women group

Adamawa League of Women Empowerment, has condemned Aisha, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, for criticizing her husband in public.

The group told newsmen on Thursday in Yola, that the outburst on the BBC had only ridiculed the first family and exposed President Buhari to attacks from opponents.

It’s spokesperson, Maryam Ibrahim, noted that Aisha being a Fulani woman had violated the Fulani culture and jettisoned the tradition of modesty of Fulanis by openly criticizing her husband.

They said that the statement by Aisha had created a negative impression of her status as the wife of the president and exposed both her husband and the entire family to global ridicule.

“It is against this backdrop, that we unanimously condemned Mrs Aisha Buhari’s BBC interview because it is ill-timed, counter-productive and was done in bad taste.

“Consequently, Mrs Aisha Buhari’s action negate the spirit of Pula’aku, modesty and decorum which are virtues of fulbe (Fulani)”, it said.

The group lamented that Mrs Buhari had set a bad precedent in the presidency, saying non of the wives of former president’s had ever made negative comments about their husbands.
