The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, says Nigerians can now address her as the first lady.
Recall that when her husband assumed office for his first term in 2015, Mrs. Buhari released a statement saying she wouldn’t want to be addressed as the first lady but as the wife of the President.
Well, it seems she has had an alternate of heart. While speaking at the presentation of awards to the previous and contemporary other halves of Governors of the 36 states at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja the day before today Thursday June thirteenth, Mrs Buhari said her decision to simply accept the name of the first girl became so that it will clear up the issue of the name of other halves of governors.
“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,” she said
