Barely 24 hours after details of his wife’s interview with BBC Hausa service got to the public domain, report says President Muhammadu Buhari is mounting pressure on authorities in BBC not to broadcast the full interview granted by Aisha Buhari.
It was also learnt that President Buhari’s kitchen cabinets whom Mrs. Aisha regarded to as “strangers” in the interview, were also leading campaign against airing of the full interview, which is billed for broadcast on Saturday.
Sahara Reporters however claimed that, Buhari has, ordered his wife who is currently in London, to stop granting further interviews to the media.
Aisha Buhari lamented that her husband was surrounded by opportunists.
She noted that those who really worked for his victory in the 2015 election had been sidelined by those that didn’t participate.
“This worries us a lot now. Because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but are no where today.
“Those who didn’t do anything, who don’t even have voters’ cards are the ones in position, doing everything,” Aisha said.
It was gathered that neither the president’s nephew, Mamman Daura or his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari voted for Buhari in the last election as they neither possed a voter’s card nor were they card-carrying members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
