Why I Choose to be Addressed As First Lady-Aisha Buhari
Aisha Buhari, the wife of the president, has accepted to be addressed as First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Aisha, on Thursday, announced her decision, adding that it would take off with immediate effect so as to resolve the issue of the title for wives of governors.
Buhari disclosed her new official title at the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of Governors of the 36 states.
The event held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“When my husband was newly elected, I personally chose to be called the wife of the President.
“But, I realized 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 choose to be called the first lady,” she said.
