If President Muhammadu Buhari was asked to name those he knew among every 50 people working for him, he would have difficulties with 45, Aisha Buhari, first lady, has said.
Aisha, who said this in an interview with the Hausa Service of the BBC, also expressed worries at the efforts of some people to create division in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“This worries us a lot now. Because they believe they are the ones who suffered, but are nowhere today.
Those who didn’t do anything who don’t even have voters’ card are the ones in position, doing everything,” she said.
Referring to the number of voters who chose her husband over former president, Goodluck Jonathan, she said: “What I am afraid of is the rebellion of 15 million people.”
She also said that even if the president doesn’t know the identity of those causing ruckus in his government, those who voted him into office are aware.
“Whether he knows or he doesn’t know, those who voted for him know. There is nothing I will tell him.
“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 despite staying with him for 25 years.”
The airing of the full interview is still being expected
