Aisha Buhari: Nobody can steal the materials I donate to the needy because I monitor them from my bedroom

Aisha Buhari: Nobody can steal the materials I donate to the needy because I monitor them from my bedroom

Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, says the donations of her non-governmental organisation (NGO) cannot be mismanaged because she monitors them from her bedroom.

Aisha made this statement during an interview she granted to Your View, a show on TV Continental.

She also said her projects had not received any cash donations, and that 85% is her personal contribution.

“We are going from state to state to see what we can do to reduce maternal mortality, and we are providing women with basic things needed in a labour room,” she said.

“A lot of women can not afford it and stay at home to deliver the babies and that is dangerous. 80 percent of the kits will get to them because I monitor everything from my bedroom,” she said.

“I think out of all the contributions, it is only mine that gets to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) up to 85%.

“As the wife of the president, when I call people answer, that is why we have pet projects.”

She said the items that have been donated to the beneficiaries of the welfare programme, who are indigent men, women, widows and disabled from 17 local government areas, include 1,000 bags of rice, 1,000 cans of cooking oil, tomatoes, provisions and other food supplements.

“We are concentrating more on Borno community because it needs urgent attention,” she said.

On gender equality, she said: “Men and women are not the same, all we ask is to be treated nicely, women are to support the men.

“One of the major factor that hinders women from speaking out when it comes to domestic violence is the fear of the unknown, every woman should be able to sustain herself.”

The issue of bedroom came up after she raised the alarm that her husband’s government had been hijacked.

Responding to the allegation, Buhari had said his wife was not versed in politics, and that she belonged to his kitchen, his living room and the other room
