Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari on Wednesday accused her husband’s nephew, Mamman Daura of giving out orders for the scrapping of the office of the First Lady.

Aisha alleged that Daura ordered Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu to scrap the office of the First Lady without the President’s knowledge.

She, in spite of that, stated that despite scrapping that office, she has been able to raise funds to run her humanitarian programmes.

Mrs Buhari made the disclosure in a statement issued by her spokesperson, Suleiman Haruna.

The statement reads partly: “Mr. Shehu was privy and part of the plan and it’s execution and he was shocked when he realized that I had publicized my return to Nigeria on October 12, 2019 and cleared the air on the many rumors that took over social media, a job he was supposed to do but kept mute to cause more confusion and instability for his Principal and his family.

“Garba then, vented his anger on the National Television Authority (NTA) Management insisting that the media crew to my office must be sacked. He succeeded in getting them suspended for doing their job. I had to intervene to save the innocent staff from losing their means of livelihood by involving the Department of State Services (DSS) in order to ascertain roles played by key actors in the saga.

”It is at this late hour that I recall, sadly, that it was the same Garba Shehu who claimed that the government will not allow the office of the First Lady to run. He was later to confirm to one of my aides that he was instructed to say so by Mamman Daura and not the President. This antic attracted the anger of Nigerian women. He didn’t realize the fact that the First Lady’s office is a tradition which has become an institution.

”Today, even without a budget, I am able to run my humanitarian programmes. In saner climes, Garba Shehu would have resigned immediately after going beyond his boundaries and powers.”
