- Aisha Buhari has been blamed for the shooting affair in the statehouse
- According to Sanni Umar, it was not the duty of the first lady to enforce a quarantine on anyone
- Recall that there was a shooting incident in the statehouse involving an aide of Buhari and Aisha
For involving herself in the incident that led to unrest in the statehouse in Abuja, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has been slammed by a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sanni Umar.
Umar who spoke on the incident during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Monday, June 15, argued that it was not Aisha's duty to quarantine anyone.
He said the role should have been left for the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
“If we are talking about the quarantine, we are talking about the NCDC. I don’t know how the wife of Mr. President will become a member of NCDC who will now go to quarantine somebody because the person has travelled to Lagos,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) raised the alarm over what it claimed was alleged shooting inside the premises of the Presidential Villa.
In a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday, June 13, the PDP claimed it had reports that there was "shooting and security breaches within the precincts of the Presidential Villa following a reported degenerated squabble among family members and officials of the Buhari Presidency."
The party, in the statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it was concerned that disagreements between the Nigerian first lady, Aisha Buhari's staff and her husband's aides would degenerate into a shooting.
"The PDP is deeply worried that the protracted spat between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, and aides of President Muhammadu Buhari has now degenerated into violent combats, raids and free use of firearms within the Presidential Villa," it added.
