Aisha Buhari, wife of Nigeria’s outgoing President, Muhammadu Buhari, has said her husband has addressed most of the challenges that plagued the country when he came to power.
Speaking in an interview with The Sun, Aisha said Buhari fulfilled half of his campaign promises.
She said insecurity has been significantly tackled under the administration of her husband compared to the situation of things when her husband assumed office.
She scored the president 70 percent, noting that most kidnappings were perpetrated by family members for mischievous purposes.
The First Lady said, “Compared to what we met on the ground, he has done wonderfully well. But if one is to compare with the zeal that we came into power, we have achieved 50 percent in all the areas captured in his campaign promises. Especially in the areas of works like road constructions, bridges, you know, infrastructure in general. He has made a lot of difference.
“I think maybe we scored 70 percent on security. I say so because before now, there were a lot of barricades, a lot of roadblocks, but now there are no more roadblocks, nothing,” Aisha said.
“Even the kidnapping that is happening now is being organised among the family members. It is a deliberate thing, you know. And then the insurgency or the banditry may be organised by some local people, you know. But if there is no connivance, I can say that we have achieved 90 percent on security.”
According to Aisha, the president “received Nigeria intact, and he is going to hand over Nigeria intact”.
