How do you know that the First Lady of Nigeria is fully deliberate about the storm she caused, and she isn’t backing down, no matter how juvenile her husband’s responses?
1. She made the statement in a public interview – when she wasn’t under pressure.
2. She has kept a deliberate and dignified silence since she dropped the bombshell and the world went haywire.
3. She has refused, staunchly, to apologise. She does NOT apologise.
4. She just tweeted this.

See the topic ‘The Role of Women in Global Security’. – at the Crans Montana Forum in Brussels. Oh my God. She wasn’t even subtle about this one. Her husband says her role is in the kitchen, and her FIRST speech is about the role of women?
Then, 5. That dress. THAT dress! THAT DRESS!!!
Hello, Nigerian feminists! We all have a new icon here.
[And thank you, Mrs. Buhari, for listening to my piece here.]
