Reactions As Buhari’s Daughter-In-Law Spotted At UNGA77

President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter in-law, Zahra, is among the Nigerian delegation present at the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The president’s wife, Aisha Buhari, announced in a Facebook post on Wednesday that her daughter-in-law was present at the diplomatic meeting in New York.

“Mrs Zahra B. Buhari Part of My delegation at the ongoing #UNGA,” the first lady wrote.

This has sparked new controversy regarding the First Family’s carelessness with public funds at a time when the country is experiencing its greatest economic crisis.

Zahra Buhari, who is married to Yusuf, President Buhari’s only son, is not a government official and shouldn’t be in attendance as a delegate.

The president’s wife had previously drawn criticism for announcing that Zahra had graduated from a UK university.

Critics attacked Mrs. Buhari for highlighting the academic prowess of her children while ignoring the thousands of Nigerian public university students who were left trapped at home for more than seven months due to ASUU strike.

Mrs Buhari’s Facebook post on Wednesday further triggered criticisms with some Nigerians describing it insensitive.

Reacting to the post, a citizen Ismail Mantu, wrote: “the first family are acting insensitive to the plight of the common man. We took pity of your desperate husband and ride him on our shoulders to Aso Rock against overwhelming odds.

“Here is the President having no iota of remorse towards the pains of we the commoners. Negotiating with terrorist groups  and using court orders to force universities lecturers to work in a poor paying condition. Shame on you!”

Another citizen, Adnan Muktar Tudunwada, said “your delegation to UNGA which without our votes, you couldn’t have such a privilege. Power is transient, you shall one day be out of power like Patience, Turai Yar’Adua and co. Aisha should learn some lessons.”
