At the inaugural meeting of the APC women presidential campaign initiative held in Abuja today, Saturday January 24th, wife of the APC presidential flag-bearer, Mrs Aisha Buhari reacted to her husband’s promise to scrap the office of the first lady because it is unconstitutional and allegedly being used to steal public fund.
She said her husband will not tamper with the office of the First Lady, if it is constitutionally recognised, because he won’t do anything out of the constitution. She further went on to say, if it is not in the constitution and he intends to scrap it, then it is fine.
She however assured that, if her husband gets elected as the president next month, she will play her role as the first lady in a traditional way when she resumes office. Continue below…
“When my husband is elected as the president of this country, he will rule the country within the rule of law based on the constitution of the country.
“If the office of the first lady is constitutionally recognised, he will not tamper with it, but if it is not, that’s okay.
“For me, I will perform my duties and role as the wife of the President of Nigeria traditionally. Wives of presidents have some traditional roles, like receiving guests, visiting orphanages, helping the less privileged people.
“They also lead in the fight for the right of women and malnourished children, infant mortality rate, fight against kidnapping and girl-child trafficking.”

She urged them to double their efforts in educating other women on how to cast their votes and at the same time be civil in their conducts
