I still cook my husbandâ€™s meals â€” Aisha Buhari
Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari
Despite the retinue of staff at the presidential villa waiting
on the First Family, President Muhammadu Buhariâ€™s wife,
Aisha, still cooks his food.
She made this known on Saturday while hosting some
children to an elaborate reception as part of activities
marking this yearâ€™s Eid-el-Fitri.
At the party held inside the old Banquet Hall of the
Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Presidentâ€™s wife, after spending
about two hours with the children, sought their permission
to go and make dinner for her husband, who she said was
alone at home.
â€œIâ€™m going to leave you soon. I want to go back home to
cook for my husband. Because my children are here
playing with you, nobody is at home, only my husband. I
want to go back home to be with him and also cook dinner
for him,â€ she told the highly elated children.
Before her exit, she urged the children to be good
ambassadors of their parents and the country.
While that the future of the country is in the hands of children,
Mrs. Buhari advised them to face their studies and be
obedient to their parents.
The First Lady also admonished the children to continue to
pray for other Nigerian children who are currently residing
inside the different Internally Displaced Persons camps
scattered all over the country because of acts of terrorism.
Telling them that the current administration attaches great
importance to the welfare of children and would stop at
nothing to ensure their protection and development, she
said, â€œThe future of this great country lies in your hands.
You are to complement the efforts of government by
working very hard in school and to be obedient to your
â€œTomorrow, you may be the President, the Presidentâ€™s wife,
senators, honourable members, governors, medical doctors,
teachers, journalists, engineers, nurses, lawyers and the
rest of our honourable professions."
The Presidentâ€™s wife also urged parents to encourage and
monitor their children.
The party featured different games, dancing competition
and fashion parade among others. Mrs. Buhari was
accompanied by wives of some former governors.
