This morning, Nigeria's first lady, Aisha Buhari issued a very strongly worded statement accusing Adams Oshiomole and APC leaders of 'impunity' and 'unfairness'.
In her statement, the first lady said, 'It is disheartening to note that some aspirants used their hard earned money to purchase nomination forms, got screened, cleared and campaigned vigorously yet found their names omitted on Election Day, these forms were bought at exorbitant prices'.
The statement instantly made her a trending topic on Nigerian social media with mixed reactions trailing it.
See all the reactions below.
Aisha Buhari is a political liability though. Great that she is strong enough to say whatever the hell she wants to, like the former 1st Lady, but unlike that one, no political savvy at all.

Aisha Buhari's brother, Halilu Ahmed lost out to Governor Bindow in the Adamawa State APC Gubernatorial Primary election. That's the reason for her outburst. pic.twitter.com/KVg6GQODQI—

Aisha Buhari is wailing but I refuse to be distracted. Focused on the PDP primaries.
She says APC is a useless party.

Waiting to read from some of the South West Boys, defenders of Aso Rock. Will they abuse Aisha Buhari? Will they praise her for disassociating herself from the mess? Will they ignore her completely and attack the rest of us? Grab your cup of coffee and bowl of chin chin.— Dr. Dípò (@OgbeniDipo) October 7, 2018
After criticising the APC and the chairman of the party, Aisha Buhari asked Nigerians to vote wisely in 2019. Meaning she’s not voting the APC in 2019. Interesting stuff.— Dr. Dípò (@OgbeniDipo) October 7, 2018
Aisha Buhari is a PDP mole in APC, my administration and in my life.
No wonder I fall sick any time I go into the other room with her. pic.twitter.com/zrsPARgMiq— Parosident Buhari (@TheMbuhari) October 7, 2018
Aisha Buhari can never be half the politician Dame P was. Dame P will tumble GEJ inside the house, show him pepper if e match line but disrupt his authority or image or associates in public dhe never did. Nobody wins when the family feuds.— Bolouere (@boluxxxx) October 7, 2018
Forget all the bants and what not. If I join politics and my wife messes with me the way Aisha Buhari messes with Buhari, that’s it. Gone. Bye.— Dr. Dípò (@OgbeniDipo) October 7, 2018
Aisha Buhari berates Oshiomole over irregularities in APC’s nationwide primaries, says APC is a useless party. She's calling the party that Buhari will use to contest again for president useless, later she will tell Nigerians to vote for her husband in a useless party.— AJALA (@UNCLE_AJALA) October 7, 2018
Aisha Buhari always criticizing this government. Today she said APC is corrupt, has she forgotten that her husband is running under that party.
My concern now are:
Is she going to plea to Nigerians to vote her husband?
Will she ask Nigerians not to vote for him?
Vote Wisely— Babalola Olufemi Joseph (@Iamfemijoseph) October 7, 2018
Aisha Buhari needs to breath easy. Who told her she ll always have her ways cos her husband is the president? Buhari doesn't operate like that. He "is for everybody" not for his family alone or a privileged few like our former president @Ayourb— Adekunle (@jokerike) October 7, 2018
I wonder what politicians like Aisha Buhari mean when they advice us to vote wisely, like we all have been foolish all along ==> #PDPpresidentialPrimaries— Adenle R. Adeshina?? (@AfroBaseNg) October 7, 2018
The responsibility of rescuing Nigeria from Buhari's notorious incompetence falls on Atiku.
You'd hear so much about Atiku's corruption in the days ahead. He has no case with EFCC, ICPC or CBT. And He's the second highest job creator in Nigeria. Aisha Buhari is also his fan!— Kelvin Odanz (@Kelvin_Odanz) October 7, 2018
Aisha buhari is just playing politics, she's radical and always telling the truth, her posts doesn't mean she supports PDP but instead telling the facts to APC if they aren't on the right track. I totally respect her. pic.twitter.com/wyGSchpRkg— Muhammad Abdul-hadi (@m_mubeey) October 7, 2018
Aisha Buhari is basically telling us not to vote Buhari and y'all think it's a joking sturv.?— tyrion lannister (@ChidiArua) October 7, 2018
Is it safe to say the type of marriage between Aisha Buhari and President Buhari is goals? I’m having headache in my stomach already ????— Elsie Godwin (@ELSiEiSY) October 7, 2018
Comr. Aisha Buhari has spoken.
We are waiting for response from APC, Buhari Media Center and other sycophantic Buharist. pic.twitter.com/m3bzbIbDmb— Malam Sabiu Zaranda (@Binzaranda) October 7, 2018
