Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has blasted the $16 million spent by Nigeria on the purchase of mosquito nets saying such an amount is enough to fumigate the entire country.
According to The Nation, Aisha was not so happy about the $16m counterpart fund spent on mosquito nets. She made her opinion on this known during an interactive session with women at the State House, Abuja on Saturday.
“I have heard about mosquito nets, Nigeria paid its counterpart fund, $16m. I asked them to give my own share of the net to send it to my village people. I didn’t get it.
“They have spent, $16m on buying mosquito nets, I did not get it, maybe some people have gotten it. But I feel that that’s my personal opinion, $16m is enough to fumigate mosquitoes in Nigeria. That’s my opinion,” she said.
