Abuja — Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari last night in Abuja said she did not want to be addressed as above henceforth, but as the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
According to a statement by her Special Adviser on Media, Bisi Olumide-Ajayi, Mrs. Buhari made this known at an award night and dinner in honour of the wives of immediate past and new governors at the Banquet Hall of the State House.
Since 2015, Mrs. Buhari had always been addressed as 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.
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.
