Twitter users knock Aisha Buhari for begging Kogi people to forgive Yahaya Bello


Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has come under criticism from Nigerians on social media over her plea to the people of Kogi State to forgive and forget any wrong Governor Yahaya Bello may have committed during his first term in office.

Like Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai, the wife of the president made the plea at a rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lokoja ahead of the Saturday, November 16, governorship election in the state.

Aisha told the residents of the state that the verification exercise organised for civil servants in the state was the reason why Bello could not pay salaries for some time.

She said Kogi residents will not be disappointed if they vote for the incumbent governor following the president’s intervention regarding the payment of salaries in the state.

“My husband used to emphasise on salaries, it took a while for the Kogi salary payment to get settled after a long time of verification,” she said.

“But this time vote for him for continuity of payment of salary on time.”

Aisha’s comment at the campaign rally enraged some Nigerians who have taken to Twitter to lambaste her for “associating with failure”.
