I Still Cook My Husband’s Meals, Says Mrs. Aisha Buhari

Aisha Buhari-ChildrenOne would have thought the allure of her new found position as wife of the president would dissuade Hajiya Aisha Buhari from certain domestic duties such as cooking but that was not the case yesterday when she excused herself from a children’s event to go and cook her husband meal.
In the past, the food of first families were prepared by official cooks at the Presidential Villa.
But on Saturday, mid-way into a Sallah party she held yesterday at the seat of power for children, Mrs. Buhari sought to be excused to go and cook President Muhammadu Buhari’s food.
She said: “I’m going to leave you soon. I want to go back home to cook for my husband. Because my children are here playing with you, so nobody is at home, only my husband. So I want to go back home to be with him and also cook dinner for him”.
The wife of the president also urged the children at the party to continue to pray for their counterparts, who are currently living in Internally Displaced Persons’ camps in parts of the North.
She also asked them to be good ambassadors of their parents at all times.
She said: “The future of this great country lies in your hands. You are to complement the efforts of government by working very hard in school and be obedient to your parents.
“Tomorrow, you may be the President, President’s wife, senators, honourable members, governors, medical doctors, teachers, journalists, engineers, nurses, lawyers and the rest of our honourable professions”.
Mrs. Buhari further urged parents to encourage and monitor their children.
While loud speakers were blaring with various songs to the delight of the children, giant screens were also mounted showing kids’ cartoons.
The children, who were given packed meals and drinks, also took part in fashion parade and dancing competition.
