The Senator representing Bayelsa East senatorial district, Ben Murray-Bruce, has pointed out that the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, does not belong to ‘the other room’, as he called on her not to be intimidated.
Newsworth recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had while dismissing his wife’s allegation that a cabal had hijacked his government, stated last year in Germany that Aisha belonged to “the kitchen, the living room and the other room”.
Murray-Bruce however countered, asserting that the President’s wife has by her actions and words proven to be rather a very intelligent woman who has what it takes to excel in leadership positions.
He tweeted this against the backdrop of Aisha’s re-tweeting of videos where him and the Senator representing Bauchi-Central, Isa Misau, berated Buhari on the floor of the Senate for the administration’s alleged inaction on the killings by herdsmen in parts of the country and other issues.
In a post on his Twitter handle Friday night, Murray-Bruce wrote, “Let me say that by the actions and utterances of @aishambuhari since she became Nigeria’s First Lady, it is my opinion that she does not belong in the ‘other room.’ She is a very intelligent woman that has the capacity to lead and lead well. Your Excellency, please never be cowed!”
