Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has apologised to her children, immediate family members and Nigerians over the embarrassment that viral videos had caused.
A footage of the president’s wife raging inside the Aso Villa went viral on social media last Friday.
The First Lady, according to a statement issued by her Director of Information, Suleiman Haruna, stated these during a solidarity visit by First Ladies from the 36 states at the Presidential Villa.
“Commenting on the videos circulating on social networks, Buhari extended her apology to her children, her immediate family members and all well-meaning Nigerians over the embarrassment that the videos had caused,” the statement said.
She also pledged to construct a regional secretariat for the African First Ladies Peace Mission.
The AFLPM, which was established after the Beijing Conference of 1995, has been in the custody of Nigeria, with leadership rotating among African First Ladies.
The First Lady said,
“I have successfully secured 2.7 hectares of land in Abuja for this purpose and the foundation laying will soon be conducted in the presence of African First Ladies.”
Buhari also spoke on the advocacy project for the improvement of maternal and child health, which is supported by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by Future Assured Programme in partnership with the states First Ladies, saying it would come to an end in December 2019.
She used the opportunity to commend the First Ladies for the good work they have been doing in their various states, and the successful collaboration they did with Future Assured.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of a new set of aides for his wife.
The appointments are with immediate effect.
The appointments were announced in a statement issued on Wednesday by her Director of Information, Suleiman Haruna.
The appointees are Dr. Mairo Almakura, Special Assistant (African First Ladies Peace Mission); Muhammed Albishir, Special Assistant (Organisation of African First Ladies for Development); and Wole Aboderin, Special Assistant (Non-Governmental Organisations).
