Information reaching 247ureports.com reveal the troubles bedeviling the 1st family of Nigeria maybe far from over judging by the demeanor of the President of the federal republic of Nigeria and the body language instruction dished out to the various anti-graft agencies in the country. A highly reliable source stated that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] has opened a comprehensive probe on the person of the 1st lady over her interaction with the many lobbyists looking to reach her husband for a favor.
Our source revealed that the relationship between the 1st lady and the President had so much deteriorated to a near none existent following a few days after the swearing-in as the President of the federal republic of Nigeria. Chief on the top reasons why the President turned away from the 1st lady was her desire to play the role of the 1st lady in the manner other 1st ladies had played – in the likes of Stella Obasanjo, Turaki Yar’Adua and Patience Jonathan. Aisha Buhari wanted to have the type of influence over her husband as the other 1st ladies before her. She wants to influence who is appointed to certain sensitive positions in her husband’s administration, and to effectively control certain aspect of the government. Our source adds that she had already become a ‘paid’ lobbyist of some sort. “She did not waste time in collecting money from businessmen and other people looking to meet her husband”, said the source who added that Buhari in the know of her money collecting activities – that he blocked her out of his daily activities.
“Buhari would walk in to the house from work in the evening and he would immediately walk upstairs to his room and lock the doors to keep Aisha away from his room“, stated the source as he explained the cold shoulder given to Aisha by Mohammadu Buhari immediately he discovered her intent to become involved in his administration as his life partner. According to the source, Buhari was not comfortable with the information from friends and associates concerning Aisha’s mingling with politicians and businessmen who were interested in meeting with the President. For this reason, the President decided on avoiding communication with his wife, the 1st lady. On some occasion, Mohammadu Buhari had instructed the 1st to refund the monies collected from several sources – of which the 1st lady did not take lightly with her husband.
“Her lifestyle needs money and power, and it is so different from what Mohammadu Buhari can tolerate” Information on her upbringing and background spell extravaganza and luxurious lifestyle. “She wants and loves money and things money can buy so much that she is willing to harbor and encourage corruption” said our source as he continued, “She is from a different generation from Buhari and she has little personal relationship with her husband to enable her relate her concerns to him“. And he can care less of her opinions on policies or government matters.
Buhari’s realization of Aisha’s brother, Musa’s interference in his administration was one of the initial problems that greeted the President. Aisha’s brother had begun reaching to individuals seeking to do business with the Buhari’s administration – immediately Buhari won the presidential elections. Reports have it that he raised amounts in excess of N500million within a span of six month following the presidential elections. The President was not happy with Musa. He directed for Musa to be bundled out of the Presidential villa and banished from Villa. A source from the villa told 247ureports.com that he was handcuffed an escorted out of the villa.
It is to this point that the presidency took to action. The President, according to the source instructed for all information of financial wrong doing by his wife and her siblings should be directed to the EFCC for further investigation. The Chairman of the EFCC – who is presently battling to impress the President – is reported to have been instructed to begin a broad investigation into the financial dealings of the 1st lady and his siblings.
