Nigerians React As Aisha Buhai Demands 'First Lady' Title

President Muhammadu Buhari‘s wife, Aisha Buhari, has faulted the $16 million spent by Federal Government of Nigeria as counterpart funding for the purchase of mosquito nets.

Naija News understands that the First Lady expressed reservations on the $16m counterpart fund expended on mosquito nets during an interactive session with women at the State House in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Saturday, May 25.

Her words: “I have heard about mosquito nets, Nigeria paid its counterpart fund, $16m. I asked them to give my own share of the net to send it to my village people. I didn’t get it.

“They have spent $16m on buying mosquito nets, I did not get it, maybe some people have gotten it. But I feel that that’s my personal opinion, $16m is enough to fumigate mosquitoes in Nigeria. That’s my opinion,” Mrs Buhari added.
