Aisha Buhari has revealed how Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) took advantage of the president’s illness to strengthen his alleged threats to the country.
President Muhammadu Buhari was away in London on medical vacation for about 105 days within which the activities of Kanu and IPOB went viral and gained international momentum.
Aisha said it was unfortunate that Kanu, a 40-year-old, could seized the opportunity of her husband’s absence to create a state within a state.
The Punch reports that the wife of the president spoke at the opening of a two-day stakeholders meeting on Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.
“Going back to the same health issue in Nigeria, as a result of spending several months by the president outside Nigeria, a 40-year-old man who was still living in his father’s house, created a state out of a state and that is a major set back for the country and the health sector did not benefit,” she reportedly said.
NAIJ.com earlier reported how Aisha Buhari called for the probe of Aso Rock clinic over what she described as the inefficiency of the management of the clinic.
