My husband’s ill health caused instability in Nigeria – Aisha Buhari

Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, said yesterday that her husband’s ill health caused instability in Nigeria.
She expressed the view at the stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, New Born, Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH & N) in Abuja.
Th e event was also used to inaugurate the Governors Wives Advocacy Group (GWAG), on reproductive health in the country.
President Muhammadu Buhari was in London for treatment of an undisclosed illness and spent over 100 days there.
He returned to Nigeria on August 19 and has since resumed full duties, which he delegated to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, while he was away.
“As you are aware, for the past six months, Nigeria was not stable because of my husband’s ill health,” Aisha Buhari said.
“We thank God that he has fully recovered now,” she added.
Aisha Buhari also lamented the actions of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, saying he tried to create “a state out of a state.
” Although Mrs. Buhari did not mention Kanu by name, the reference was unmistakable.
“A 40-year-old man, who is still living in his father’s house created a state out of a state and that is a major setback to the country,” she said, suggesting her husband’s medical vacation worsened the Nnamdi Kanu situation.
“I hope that such a thing will not be repeated,” she said.
