Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has congratulated Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, for joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mrs Adeosun collected her membership card in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Saturday in the presence APC national financial secretary, Tajudeen Bello, and other party chieftains.

Mrs Buhari posted a picture from the event on social media on Monday along with the message “Congrats Hon. Minister of Finance Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, Welcome on board (APC).”

Adeosun, 51, was appointed finance minister by President Muhammadu Buhari in November 2015.

She succeeded Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala who served under immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan.

Mrs Buhari once said in a BBC interview that she won’t campaign for her husband’s re-election because some people had hijacked the APC to the exclusion of those who worked for it to take over power in 2015.

She has since changed her mind.
