Aisha Buhari has said that she’s now chosen to be addressed as First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as against Wife of the President.
Aisha said this at the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of Governors of the 36 states.
NTA quoted Aisha Buhari as saying:
When my husband was elected newly I personally chose to be called the 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.
So, forgive me for confusing you from the beginning, but now I chose to be called the first lady.
