Wife of the president Aisha Buhari has said she now will prefer to be called the first lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Okay.ng reports that she disclosed this during the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of Governors of the 36 states.
Speaking at the event held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Aisha said in order to resolve the issue of the title of wives of governors.
In her words, “When my husband was newly elected, 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.”
It can be recalled that in 2015, Buhari in his campaign promises vowed not to recognise the office of the first lady which he had said was unconstitutional.
