Twitter users make fun of Aisha Buhari’s first lady title

Aisha Buhari

Nigerians have made fun of Aisha Buhari’s choice to be addressed henceforth as First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Mrs Buhari, at the presentation of awards to governors’ wives in Abuja on Thursday, said the new arrangement takes immediate effect to resolve the issue of the title of wives of governors.

“When my husband was newly elected, I personally chose to be called the wife of the president.

“But, I realised that it causes confusion from the state as to whether the wives of state governors are to be addressed as the first ladies or wives of the governors.

“So, forgive me for confusing you from the beginning, but now I chose to be called the first lady,” she said.

Twitter users have posted hilarious mimes in reaction to Aisha’s decision.
