The Rate Things Are Going, Things Are Completely Out Of Hands – Aisha Buhari
The wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, has raised alarm over the situation of things in the country.
She stated this on Friday in a short speech at the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs General Assembly and National Executive Council Meeting held at the National Mosque in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Aisha said, “We should either fasten our seatbelt, get up and do the needful or we will all regret it very soon because, at the rate things are going, things are completely out of hands.”
“The Vice President is here, ministers are here; they are supposed to do justice to whatever. People cannot afford portable drinking water in this country. We have ministers, we have governors.
“Since this is the highest decision-making body of Islamic affairs, for those that are Muslims we should fear God and we know that one day we will return to God and account for our deeds here,” she added.
The President’s wife supported the Social Media Bill before members of the National Assembly and highlighted the importance of the bill.
She recalled a situation where a report was trending that the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, had resigned from his office.
According to Aisha, the sponsor(s) of such a report deserved to be punished and people who engage in fake news should be made to face the consequence of their actions.
Aisha stated, “You cannot just sit in the comfort of your house and tweet that Mr Vice President has resigned. It’s a serious crime.
“If China Can Control 1.8 billion people on social media, I see no reason why Nigeria should not attempt controlling only 180 million people.”
“We must do justice to ourselves; … as a result of the long term of injustice done to others, today most of us cannot go to our villages and sleep with our two eyes closed,” she added.
