Aisha Buhari

The wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Alhaja Aisha Buhari, has over the weekend threatened the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose over his repeated criticism of the President Buhari-led administration; saying the monthly  federal government allocations going to Ekiti State may be withheld if the governor continues to unleash verbal war on the president and herself as the first lady.

She said despite the fact that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lost the 2015 general elections convincingly to the All Progressive Congress (APC), the Ekiti State governor had refused to put the general election behind him.

Commenting on the legal battle with Fayose during an interview with VOA, she said she has the right to take him to court.

The president’s wife sued the governor after he refused to retract his allegations that she was indicted in the Halliburton scam.

She had initially given Fayose a five-day ultimatum to apologise, but the governor did not budge, insisting that he had evidence to substantiate his claim. He even challenged her to visit the US if she was sure that she was not afraid of being arrested.

Buhari’s wife is currently in the US, where she is expected to spend a full week.Tracing the origin of the issue to the electioneering period, the president’s wife said it was not only Fayose who was abusing her, but added that while others “kept quiet after the election, the governor continued.

She said it was God who made it possible for her husband to win the election.

“All these started during the campaign period. He was not the only who was abusing me, others did that, but after the election, which Allah made us to win, and they to lost, everybody kept quiet, but Fayose kept on abusing people and eventually he started abusing me too,” she said.

“I don’t know those places and people he mentioned,” she said. “I never chose myself for this post, but God chose it for me. I am not even the one who contested election. “I have never abused him; I don’t even know him as a person. How can he be accusing me of what I have no idea of? I won’t let this go.

“Apparently Fayose has presented himself as the sole enemy of this government, and according to law of the nature, you don’t feed your enemy to have strength to wrestle power with you. Hence, Ekiti State monthly allocations may be ceased for a while to teach him (Fayose) a lesson,” Aisha frankly threatened.
