Aisha Buhari, the first lady of Nigeria, says she does not have intimate conversations in bed with her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari, owing to “a lack of time”.
Mrs. Buhari said it is the reason she keeps ”talking”, which means making her opinions on issues known publicly.
Speaking when she featured on Journalists Hangout, a programme on Television Continental (TVC), the first lady said this is so because they are busy tending to national issues.
The first lady who often gives her opinions on national issues, was asked if she gets to raise some of these matters with the president during “pillow talk”.
“There is no pillow in the villa,” she answered.
She was also asked “not even in the other room”, an allusion to her husband’s statement in 2016 that “she belongs in my kitchen and my living room and the other room”.
She again, replied “no”.
According to her, their tight schedule has deprived them of such moments.
She added that if members of the cabinet carried out their responsibilities as expected, then her and her husband can rest and she would not have to keep on commenting on issues.
“There is no pillow in the villa. No, because we are always busy listening to one story or another. I think the people he put in the cabinet, they should just sit up and do the needful. That is why it is not good to have godfatherism,” the wife of the presiddent said.
“We just have to chose the right people to be at the right place so that we would rest, so that the first lady should stop talking.”
