Nigerians are reacting to First lady, Aisha Buhari’s latest tweet, in a new Twitter trend after she reacted to the detention of her aides by the Police.
The First Lady also stressed that they need to be released to avoid being exposed to the deadly coronavirus, however, these points she raised has caused a stir on social media as many have shared their honest displeasure with the first lady’s action.
will do well to remember that.
Finally, I call on the IGP to release my assigned Staff who are still in the custody of the Police in order to avoid putting their lives in danger or exposure to Covid-19 while in their custody.

Following her tweets which many defined as ‘very commanding’ Nigerians have shared on Twitter that the first lady is often always quiet on matters that concerns the people but show a greater interest on those that concern her personally as they said that the display of ‘family issues’ between her and the president to Nigerians is ow becoming very apparent.

Tell Aisha Buhari nobody cares abt her aide. Where was she when the street was calling for justice for Uwa? Where was she since bandits turned Katsina to a blood plain? If she thinks she can crawl out from time to time to elicit sympathy for her private matters then she’s a clown

I think Aisha Buhari should understand the fact that Nigerians are tired of hearing her talk as her speech adds absolutely nothing to the lives of ordinary Nigerians, if its not about buhari marrying 2nd wife, its about Maman Daura hijacking her space or her staff being arrested!

We once had a Patience Jonathan most
Nigerians were mocking happily but now
we have a slay mama in Aisha Buhari
People died, kidnapped, killed & got raped
but she said nothing. Only waiting for
mosquitoes to bite her before she
could talk in loud voice
Aso Rock Slay Queen

Many Twitter users were of the opinion that Aisha Buhari has been silent about a lot of issue that affects the lives of Nigerians, they pointed out that she has failed to speak about the killings in the North, on police brutality and a host of social injustices as they tagged her a selfish leader as other people went on to compare her with the former first lady, Patience Jonathan.
Patience is far ahead of Aisha Buhari judging with her footprints in the Villa as the First Lady.
Talking about real politics, governance, being in charge of her affairs, feeling concerned, the affections for the Citizens and many more.
Aisha comes out only when is affected.

One was not that educated but she was indeed a mother to the whole nation nd sensitive to our plights.
The other was well educated yet she's so dumb nd insensitive to things going on in our country.All she knows is herself
RETWEET for patience Jonathan.

The only time Aisha Buhari speaks up is when her personal interest is threatened in Aso Rock
Aside that, all she does is wear Hijab up and down, commission useless projects and pose for pictures
Has she said anything about Uwa yet? Or Abba Kyari disconnected the TV in her room?

People who also jumped on this trend pointed out that with all her education as compared to Patience Jonathan, the least the first lady could do is speak up on matters that concern a lot of Nigerians. Many Twitter used the opportunity to say kind words about the former first lady as they shared that, of a truth, she was in some way, looking out for Nigerians unlike the current first lady, Aisha Buhari who has little or nothing to say on matters that concerns the ordinary Nigerian.
