Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has lashed alleged moves by some powerful forces to divide All Progressives Congress, APC, saying they could not countermand the mandate vested in her husband by 15 million Nigerians.
Mrs. Buhari was quoted in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service on Tuesday.
“This worries us a lot now, because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but not recognised in the government.
“Those who didn’t do anything who don’t even have voters’ cards are the ones in position, doing everything.”
The President’s wife was also quoted to have said: “What I am afraid for them is the rebellion of 15 million people.”
Responding to a question on whether her husband had sufficient knowledge of the identity of those at the centre of the controversies, she said: “Whether he knows or not, those who voted for him know.
“He can see. Among all the people he selected, if he is asked among 50 people, he doesn’t know 45. I don’t know them and I have lived with him for 27 years.” Aisha said
