Aisha Buhari Makes Fresh Declaration To Be Addressed as Nigeria’s First Lady


Aisha Buhari, wife of President Buhari, on Thursday declared her decision to be addressed as the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The President made the announcement of her new official title at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa during the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of Governors of the 36 states.

This is coming five years after the presidential candidate, Buhari had said there will be no office of the first lady under his government.

However, five years after, and in his second administration, a fresh declaration is made to quash the former statement which according to Aisha, has caused confusion among the wives of Nigerian governors.

She said:

“When my husband was newly elected, I personally chose to be called the wife of the President.

“But, I realised that it causes confusion from the state as to whether the wives of state governors are to be addressed as the first ladies or wives of the governors.

“So, forgive me for confusing you from the beginning, but now I chose to be called the first lady.”
