The bag held by the wife of the Nigerian president, Aisha Buhari is estimated to be worth $105, 000 (N40, 950,000) and this revelation has stirred some sort of controversies among critics and supporters.
Mrs Buhari was seen holding a Hermès Birkin 35cm Porosus Crocodile Gold Hardware Bag at the airport in Washington D.C., when she arrived the United States Wednesday for some engagements.
In case you’re wondering what the hype about the bag is, the legend of the Hermès Birkin is the tale of a bag known for its superior craftsmanship and jaw-dropping price tag, with standard models starting around $12,000.
Some Nigerians took to social media to rant, wonder and ask questions on why the president’s wife can afford such an expensive bag while the federal government claims to be dead broke.

Aisha Buhari’s Hermes hand bag cost N40 million yet Nigeria could not afford a burial of N30 million for Stephen Keshi. Shameless County!

Aisha Buhari's Hermes bag is fake. With the state of d economy, I doubt she'll be carrying a N40M bag. She's rocking a cheap version #SMKOO
