My Husband’s Absence Emboldened Nnamdi Kanu–Aisha Buhari
My Husband’s Absence Emboldened Nnamdi Kanu–Aisha Buhari. The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Mrs Aisha Buhari said on Monday that due to the long medical vacation her husband President Mohammadu Buhari had in London, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu, was emboldened.
According to Punch, the First Lady wasn’t specific, as she did not mention Nnamdi Kanu’s name but said a 40-year-old used the opportunity of her husband’s absence to create a state within a state.
Speaking at a stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition which took place at the Presidential Banquet in Aso Rock, the First Lady, said;
“Going back to the same health issue in Nigeria, as a result of spending several months by the President outside Nigeria, a 40-year-old man who was still living in his father’s house, created a state out of a state and that is a major set back for the country and the health sector did not benefit,”
