Aisha as the mirror in chief



Sir: Nothing can be as good as having a spouse that doubles as your best critic as it gives you the best mirror you can ever have of yourself. So far, Aisha, the wife of the President of the world’s most populous black nation has served her husband and country in the most audacious manner.

Aisha Buhari seems more courageous in public interest, much more than any of those before her, those ones that took advantage of their husband’s position to treat the rest of the country with unimaginable impunity, defending their husband’s ineptitude while drawing endlessly from our common wealth.

The explosive disclosure by Aisha that a cabal had seized her husband was more than enough. Every cabal is as manipulative, dangerous and selfish in all ramifications. When a President who promised to put all his energy in fighting corruption and ensuring good governance is caged by a cabal that calls the shots, such promises easily becomes mere wishes.


Even with the well-known health challenges of Nigeria’s Number One citizen, until Aisha’s defiant public disclosure, the public was unaware of the fact that it was not only ordinary citizens that lacked good medical care with the near total absence of good facilities and manpower in all public hospitals, Mr. President and his family also ran the risk of health fatalities with an ill-equipped clinic in the Presidential Villa even as provisions were made in the budget for the clinic. Our situation is this bad. And it exposes all of us as citizens being led by a rotten political class.

The President already has a good mirror that shows him his true looks. He now needs to demonstrate that he’s not only a President but one that is fully in power.

Denja Yaqub.
