Henceforth, call me First Lady, not Wife of the President – Aisha Buhari declares


By Shola Abayomi.

The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has declared forthwith, to be addressed as the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not the wife of the President.

The new development, she instructed, would take effect right away in order to resolve the issue of the title of wives of governors.

Mrs Buhari announced her new official title at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday, during the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of Governors of the 36 states.

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,” Mrs Buhari stated.
