The wife of the All Progressives Congress Presidential
Candidate, Aisha Buhari, has condemned the repeated bashing of the North
by the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan.
Patience Jonathan allegedly described the region as an enclave of beggars and unwanted children.
Mrs. Buhari said the description coming from someone who ironically
campaigns for votes in that region is an indication of a hidden agenda,
adding that the people of the North should, therefore, reject the
Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate.Mrs. Buhari promised Kano women that her husband and the APC will be
faithful to their electoral promises, and also will initiate programmes
that will make women self-reliant.
“With General Buhari in power, the spate of kidnapping and reckless
assassination of innocent people will be history in Nigeria. With
General Buhari in power, the nation’s depressing economy will be
rebounded in line with the expectation of the citizens and world best
practices,” she said
Mrs. Buhari said she was in Kano to canvass the support of women
knowing their role as important pillars in winning election the world
over, saying it would be a disaster for any politician to ignore the
vital role of women.
She stressed the need for women to exhibit courage and fighting
spirit, just as she urged them to make themselves available as foot
soldiers during the election.
Mrs. Buhari advocated for more freedom for women in the North so
that they would be able to engage themselves in productive enterprises
like their counterparts in the Southern part of the country.
commended the Kano State Government under the leadership of Rabiu
Kwankwaso for its giant developmental strides, particularly in improving
access to education.
Mrs. Buhari said Mr. Kwankwaso’s administration took children out of streets to schools.
