Aisha Buhari faces backlash as she campaigns for Yahaya Bello

The First Lady of Nigeria, her excellency Aisha Buhari yesterday (Friday, 15th November 2019) during the final campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress’ APC Candidate’ Yahaya Bello faced backlash as she beckons on voters in the State to pardon the State Governor (Yahaya Adoza Bello) over his failure to pay workers’ salaries for more than 16 months.

Yesterday, I attended the final campaign rally of the APC Candidate and incumbent governor, Yahaya Adoza Bello. The event was well attended by party leaders and followers. I am hopeful of a massive turnout and a peaceful process during Saturday’s election.

Mrs. Buhari also asked voters to re-elect Bello, All Progressive Congress candidate in the governorship election holding in the state on Saturday, despite this. She subsequently invited the governor to the podium, saying, “I want Yahaya Bello to talk to you about timely payment of salary.” She blamed the non-payment of salaries on delay from a verification process. “But this time, vote for him for continuity of payment of salary on time,” Mrs Buhari said. Her pleas were not only shallow, but they also belittled the sufferings of the people.



Usually revered for her willingness to speak truth to the leadership of the All Progressives Congress publicly, Mrs Buhari’s pleas on behalf of Kogi State governor disappointed many.
