SAHARANEWS – The Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has stirred reactions online, over her statement asking Nigerians to choose between poverty and wealth, in Saturday’s Presidential election.
Recall, that SaharaNews reported earlier that Aisha on Thursday, asked Nigerians to “decide whether the poor should become poorer, and the rich richer, or a society where the gap begins to be reduced.”
The First Lady stated this on Thursday, while presenting empowerment packs to 1,250 women and youths, from the 6 Area Councils of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, in Abuja.
In a statement by her Media Adviser, Adebisi Olumide Ajayi, available to SaharaNews, Mrs. Buhari was quoted as saying that: “Poverty is one of the indices that encourage people to embrace vices like terrorism, kidnapping, and begging.”
Aisha’s statement has since been met with criticisms and diverse reactions from Nigerians, online.
While some Nigerians on the social media identified Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC as ‘Poverty’, others identified Atiku and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as Wealth’.
