👤 By Danjuma Aliyu

The wife of Nigeria’s President Aisha Buhari has come out again to lambaste the ruling party over the “impunity” that has followed many of its primaries.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife who had previously stated that she was not going to give her support to his second term bid, said the “All Progressives Congress being a party whose cardinal principle is change and headed by a comrade/ activist whose main concern is for the common man, yet, such impunity could take place under its watch.”

Mrs Buhari, whose husband hopes to seek a second term under the All Progressives Congress, made the comment following the election to select the Governorship candidate in Adamawa.

In a tweet posted through her verified twitter account, she said she “will not hesitate than DISSOCIATE from such unfairness, be neutral and speak for the voiceless.”

She also advised Nigerians going to the polls that they must “vote wisely.”

The First Lady’s brother, Mahmood Halilu, popularly known as MODI, failed to get the required vote to clinch the ticket.
