How I Was Blocked From Accessing An Apartment In Aso Rock – Aisha Buhari

Aisha Buhari, the First Lady, has said she was blocked from accessing an apartment in the seat of power, despite being the only known wife of the president.

Mrs Buhari stated this while confirming the authenticity of a video clip that went viral last week.

In the clip circulated on social media, the first lady was heard angrily lashing out at those who prevent her movement at the seat of power.

Those who circulated it said Mrs Buhari was being locked in a room at the Aso Villa and prevented from seeing her husband who is rumored at the time to have concluded plans to walk down the aisle with another woman as a second wife.

She had during her husband’s first term in office, accused some forces of hijacking the president’s administration but her husband dismissed the allegation.

While speaking with BBC, the wife of the president confirmed the authenticity of the video but said it was not a recent incident as claimed by those who circulated it.

After being away for some months, she returned to the country on Sunday morning, two days after the date of the rumored wedding between her husband and a minister in his cabinet.

“I was the one in that video and this person you see standing at my back are my security personnel,” the first lady said.

“It was fatima, the daughter of Mamman Daura that shot the video in front of my security and everybody there. She was actually recording the whole thing right in front of me and was laughing and mocking me.

“They did that because my husband sacked them from the house. He told them to get all their belongings and leave the house for my son (Yusuf) to occupy.

“I left them and wanted to get to one of the rooms but they prevented me from getting through, I left them and took another way yet I met the store locked,” she said.

In a separate interview with the BBC, Fatima gave more details into what led to the incident, The transcript reproduced below was published by TheCable.
