Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has adviced Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, to engage her husband in a pillow talk as a way of getting the President’s attention to drive home her displeasure about happenings in the country.
Aisha had recently condemned the implementation of the Social Investment Programme (SIP) of the Federal Government as well as its approach to the banditry ravaging the northern part of the country.
In reaction on Monday, Obasanjo thanked the first lady for pointing out the ills of her husband’s government. He, however, advised her to have a pillow talk with the president in their bedroom to discuss Nigeria’s problem.
A statement issued by his Media Aide, Kehinde Akinyemi on Monday quoted Obasanjo to have spoken when he played host to the Editorial Board of a Social media platform, Pen-pushing Media at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Oke – Mosan, Abeokuta. He said:
“It is nice that President wife is talking, I think she did well, and may be she should also have a pillow talk with the President.
“I believe every Nigerian family, individual, group is entitled to livelihood. And it is the responsibility of all to make sure we have a dignified life. That should be our aim collectively.”
Obasanjo also called for more advocacy and sensitization by the media to get the desired change in Nigeria.
