Nigerians are still reacting to President Buhari’s comments in response to his wife’s public criticism of his presidency. While standing next to the world’s strongest female politician – German chancellor Angela Merkel, PMB made it clear that his wife had no governmental position and should refrain from making comments in relation to political affairs when he said,
I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room
A sexist comment without a doubt but he was referring to his wife and not all women.
The presidency’s spokesman Garba Shehu took to their Twitter to say PMB’s comment was made in jest and Nigerians need to lighten up. While other prominent Nigerians like Senator Ben Murray Bruce, Reno Omokiri, Audu Maikoiri, Udo Ukonjo, Stephanie Coker and others directly or indirectly called out the president’s comment.
