Mrs. Aisha Buhari is not the only prominent woman from the north not happy with Aso Villa; wife of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Titi, is also not happy.

While Mrs. Buhari is piqued that her husband allegedly surrounds himself with the wrong people, Atiku’s wife decries the escalating poverty, unemployment and health issues resulting in deaths.

Addressing national women leaders of coalition of political parties in Abuja yesterday, the women and child rights advocate lamented that the poverty level worsened in the last three and a half years, that Nigerians are no longer sure of survival.

She described the prevailing debilitating purchasing power of Nigerians, when compared to what it was when Buhari came in 2015, as highly embarrassing.

“We are in vulnerable situations. Forget about the stories and pictures of roads you are fed with in the media. They are mere fabrications or photo-tricks.

“Go to the south east and see how erosion has assumed destructive proportion. Some sights are not less impressive than Tsunami effects.

“So many roads have been scrapped, not just washed away, to the extent that not even bicycle of motorbike can ply them. It is now a common occurrence seeing pregnant women in labour being transported with wheelbarrows or local stretchers to maternities,” she said.

Also, she drew attention to the “unbearable poverty situation in the northern part of Nigeria,” noting that poverty is killing far more than the insurgents in that region.
