President Muhammadu Buhari, has on
Sunday afternoon, warned his wife, Aisha Buhari, to stay out of
politics, while insisting that her place is still in the kitchen.
Buhari, stated this during an interview
with DW’s Phil Gayle, saying that the function of his wife, was to take
care of his home:
Below is the interview:
your wife criticised your choices for top jobs, and you responded by
saying, “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to
my kitchen, and my living room.” What did you mean by that, sir?
am sure you have a house. … You know where your kitchen is, you know
where your living room is, and I believe your wife looks after all of
that, even if she is working.
DW: That is your wife’s function?
Buhari: Yes, to look after me.
DW: And she should stay out of politics?
Buhari: I think so.
Recall, that Buhari had suffered
backlash from Nigerians for his earlier statement, that his wife belongs
to the kitchen, and his living room.
Recall also, that in response to the
backlash from the statement, Garba Shehu, the Presidential Spokesman,
said the President was only joking.
