Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Abdullahi Jalo, has expressed readiness to give membership card to the First Lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, following castigation she received over her recent interview on the British Broadcasting Service.

Jalo also said the statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari at a press conference in Germany has put him in the mold of America’s Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.


Also, former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, said those calling for the arrest of President Buhari’s wife, for speaking her mind, belong to the Stone Age.

The two PDP chieftains spoke in an interview yesterday in reaction to Aisha Buhari’s interview with BBC Hausa Service on Friday. Jalo said the statement by the President that his wife belongs only to his kitchen and bedroom is costly, which can work against him if he decides to re-contest in 2019.

“Buhari is becoming like a Trump of America whose past time is to scandalise women. That statement is very costly. We are advocating that (Mrs. Hilary) Clinton should be elected to be the first woman to rule America and you are saying that you are turning your wife to be a house maid who has the right (only) to be in your kitchen and in your room.

“That is a costly statement, which will affect his electioneering campaign in 2019 if he decides to contest. The implication is that he doesn’t like women.

He is saying that women should not have right to be politicians,” Jalo stated. He said Mrs. Buhari has assumed the role of the opposition, adding that if the President said he doesn’t know her party, PDP is ready to give her a membership card.

“As far as I am concerned, she has done the work of an opposition, and if she decides to join us, she will have a good reception,” he added Jalo warned that should Buhari reject her advice, the consequence could be colossal, which might lead to his popularity being diminished as the nation is approaching the 2019 general elections.

According to him, Islam recognises that three persons who could advice a leader are his parents, his wife and the children, noting that Mrs. Buhari’s interview was in line with Islamic injunction. “What will affect the integrity of the President will affect her. She is taking cognisance of those that have suffered. People are even abusing her.Anybody that abused her has abused the President, because even if she is a divorcee, she has issues with Mohammed Buhari: she is Buhari and Buhari is she.
