The 2017 International Women’s day seeks to celebrate acts of courage and determination. By speaking up about the cabal that hijacked her husband’s administration, Aisha Buhari demonstrated a rare courage that encapsulates this year’s International Women’s Day with the Theme: “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”.
Even in the face of national outcry and criticism, President Buhari stubbornly maintained that his wife, Aisha, belongs in the kitchen, adding that she should stay out of politics. But Aisha has spoken. For daring to voice the genuine concern of the majority of Nigerians, Aisha Buhari should be seen and celebrated by Nigerian women as a symbol of courage and determination.
