Islamic Leader In Kano Calls  for Aisha Buhari’s Arrest Over BBC Interview

By Ikenga Chronicles October 15, 2016

The excerpt of the BBC’s interview with the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari has on Friday, afternoon sparked fierce reaction in Kano.

The reaction came as Aisha had in an unprecedented move, publicly criticised her husband’s cabinet warning that some people who did not labour for his victory have hijacked his government, alienating those who struggled to build the All Progressives Congress, APC.

She bluntly stated that she may not support her husband’s re-election in 2019 unless he rejigs his cabinet.

In reaction at Jamaatul Izalatul Bid’ah Mosque in Farm Centre, Kano, Shiek Ismail Illyasu Mangu  who spoke to thousands of worshipers immediately after the Jumaat prayer,  on Friday called on security agencies to arrest the first lady , Aisha Buhari “because her interview is capable of inciting millions of Nigerians against her husband.’’

“We are sad about the interview granted by the wife of the President. We believe that opposition members in the country are using her against the government. Her statement is unfair and capable of inciting violence. It is a threat to the peace of the country and we do hope the security agencies will immediately arrest her.”

“We believe that some ungrateful elements in the country are using the wife of the president to tarnish the image of the president and the country. Nigerians are not in her support.”

Meanwhile, the President in his reaction dismissed his wife’s claims saying: “I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition because in the end, I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.”

Buhari’s comments drew a reaction from his host, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who briefly stared at the Nigerian President.
