The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East Senatorial, Ben Murray-Bruce, has said First Lady Aisha Buhari is an intelligent woman that has the capacity to lead well.
The Senator spoke in reaction to the two videos shared on her official and verified twitter handle on Friday.
The videos showed Senator Misau and Bruce criticising the administration of President Buhari over the clashes between Fulani Herdsmen and Farmers across the country.
Senator Murray-Bruce also said the first lady shouldn’t be intimidated by criticisms and does not belong to the other room.
President Buhari in an interview with British Broadcasting Commission in Germany had dismissed the First Lady over her allegation that a cabal had hijacked his government.
Buhari said he did not know which political party his wife belonged, but he knew she belonged to “the kitchen, the living room and the other room.”
Responding to the First Lady tweet on Friday, Senator Bruce said “Let me say that by the actions and utterances of @aishambuhari since she became Nigeria’s First Lady, it‘s my opinion that she does not belong in the ‘other room. She is a very intelligent woman that has the capacity to lead and lead well. Your Excellency, please never be cowed!”
