Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari

Despite the retinue of staff at the presidential villa waiting

on the First Family, President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife,

Aisha, still cooks his food.

She made this known on Saturday while hosting some

children to an elaborate reception as part of activities

marking this year’s Eid-el-Fitri.

At the party held inside the old Banquet Hall of the

Presidential Villa, Abuja, the President’s wife, after spending

about two hours with the children, sought their permission

to go and make dinner for her husband, who she said was

alone at home.

“I’m going to leave you soon. I want to go back home to

cook for my husband. Because my children are here

playing with you, nobody is at home, only my husband. I

want to go back home to be with him and also cook dinner

for him,” she told the highly elated children.

Before her exit, she urged the children to be good

ambassadors of their parents and the country.

While that the future of the country is in the hands of children,

Mrs. Buhari advised them to face their studies and be

obedient to their parents.

The First Lady also admonished the children to continue to

pray for other Nigerian children who are currently residing

inside the different Internally Displaced Persons camps

scattered all over the country because of acts of terrorism.

Telling them that the current administration attaches great

importance to the welfare of children and would stop at

nothing to ensure their protection and development, she

said, “The future of this great country lies in your hands.

You are to complement the efforts of government by

working very hard in school and to be obedient to your


“Tomorrow, you may be the President, the President’s wife,

senators, honourable members, governors, medical doctors,

teachers, journalists, engineers, nurses, lawyers and the

rest of our honourable professions."

The President’s wife also urged parents to encourage and

monitor their children.

The party featured different games, dancing competition

and fashion parade among others. Mrs. Buhari was

accompanied by wives of some former governors.
