Aisha Buhari with Bbbc Hausa
Below is the full text from Aisha Buhari’s controversial interview with BBC Hausa Service.
BBC Hausa: It has been One and a half
years since President Muhammadu Buhari came into power, a lot of people
are expressing their unhappiness over the way few acquaintance of the
President have hijacked power while neglecting people that work for his
success. Like we have promised, here is how the interview with Aisha
Buhari and Naziru Maka’ilu from Abuja goes.
BBC Hausa: People have goodwill
towards President Muhammadu Buhari, especially looking at the things he
did before, but since coming into power things have not been working the
way they should, what do you
thing is the cause?
Aisha Buhari:  I am not a government
official, but in my opinion as a woman, a mother, what I think is it is
well known that the first 4 years are not going to be easy. Firstly, it
was people that brought the government into power. More than half of
those people are not appointed into the government. Some people that are
not politicians, not professionals were brought into the government.
They don’t even know what we said we want and what we don’t during the
campaign.
They even come out and say to people
we are not politicians, but they are occupying the offices meant for
politicians. Some have parted with their wives, some lost their children
lost, some women too have parted with their husbands because of
politics, a lot happened during the time. The way things are going I too
I am not happy. We are just starting, we have not finished. Some people
that worked for the government have been appointed. But those heading
government agencies you can find one fighting his state governor, they
contested together during election one in APC while in PDP.
BBC Hausa: Who are those doing these kinds of things?
Aisha Buhari: Everybody knows them.
Those people should know that people voted singly. Even Buhari too had
one vote. Nobody voted 5 times.  15.429 Million People. That one that
people are thinking too, he had only some 2 or 3 people. I am pleading
to them to have the people at heart and embrace everybody so that we can
all move together. Not even now in 2016 or 17, lot of people are
creating divisions within the APC, which is our source of concern. They
think they have worked for the government while those appointed some of
them had no voter’s card. What I fear is uprising of 15.4 million
people.
BBC Hausa: Is the President aware some people are subverting his government?
Aisha Buhari: Whether he knows or he does not, those that voted for him knows.
BBC Hausa: But you are the most closest to him, did you tell him?
Aisha Buhari: There is nothing I can
tell him, he is seeing things himself. Out of the people he has
appointed, take 50, 45 of them I don’t know them. Perhaps he doesn’t
know them too. I have been living with him for 27 years.
BBC Hausa: Do you think there are some people that are dictating to the President things to do, not him?
Aisha Buhari: That is what I am saying,
those that know they don’t have voters card, they should give chance to
those that have, they are the ones that struggled and knows what we want
to do. Some of them if you go to a meeting with them they will tell
you, we are not politicians, if somebody is wise, they will not accept
to take any political office. They didn’t even work for it. Even if you
are asked to, you should say it is not my profession.  Those places not
headed by politicians will cause people discontent.
BBC Hausa: One would wonder to
hear you say some people have hijacked the government without him
knowing, but who do you think are those people?
Aisha Buhari: I don’t know them, I don’t know them. I don’t know them
BBC Hausa: But some people are calling names, saying 2 or 3 are the ones, do you that as well?
Aisha Buhari: Yes I agree. Because of
those appointed apart from Fashola, Ameachi and some others, not much, I
don’t know them, most of us too don’t know them, and he too does not
know them
BBC Hausa: One would wonder that Buhari
is not the one charge knowing him as a person who had leadership
experiences, people would not believe
Aisha Buhari: Yes it is surprising;
nobody thought it is going to be like this. But now that it is
so…sometimes when one is doing something wrong without him knowing, but
when people talk to them, they should listen. Because in the future,
whether he is going to contest or not, it is that same people that would
vote for APC. We hope those people don’t come back, and everybody don’t
hope so too
BBC Hausa: You said “Whether he
is going to contest in the future or not”, has he disclose it to you
whether he is standing or not?
Aisha Buhari: He didn’t tell me, but I have made up my mind.
