As against the campaign promise of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 that his wife won’t hold any title, Aisha Buhari has gone against this.
She disclosed on Thursday at the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of Governors of the 36 states at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mrs Buhari said she has changed her decision in order to resolve the issue of the title of wives of governors.
“When my husband was newly elected, I personally chose to be called the wife of the President. But, I realised that it causes confusion from the state as to whether the wives of state governors are to be addressed as the first ladies or wives of the governors. So, forgive me for confusing you from the beginning, but now I chose to be called the first lady,” the first lady said.
