President Muhammadu Buhari‘s wife, Aisha Buhari yesterday took to Twitter to advise African Presidents to ignore “praise singing advisers,” a piece of advice which has since generated controversy on social media.
Naija News Understands that Mrs Buhari gave the advice through her Twitter handle on Friday, May 24, when she shared a video of Julius Malema, an influential South African politician, who advised President Cyril Ramaphosa against “prisoners”.
The Nigerian First Lady shared the video with hashtags “listen to advice” and “teamwork”.
However, the tweet generated several reactions from Nigerians, with some suggesting that Mrs Buhari’s statement was a piece of “indirect advice” to her husband, who they claim listens to “praise singers.”
On the other hand, some praised the First Lady’s boldness for always airing her opinions on some happenings in he husband’s government.

What amazes me is that Aisha Buhari continues to live in Aso rock, fly presidential jets. Enjoy bullet proof vehicles and a retinue of aides.

Here's why she's loved & unloved in equal measure-
