* Says ''my wife joins commissioners and my
workers to condemn what I do''
According to DAILY TRUST, the Governor said
Mrs Buhari did not intend to bring down her
husband's government, adding that his own wife
too sometimes joins his commissioners and
other staff in condemning some of his actions.

Okorocha said, "This is the time that all
Nigerians, irrespective of political party, religion
or culture, must come together to see what we
can do to salvage the situation and to build the
Nigeria of our collective hope and aspiration.

This is what we must emphasise at this time,
and we don't need any form of distraction
whatsoever at this time. We should support
President Muhammadu Buhari to achieve these
three key things--economy, security and power
and fight against corruption so that we can
make headway. I think we're beginning to see
light at the dark end of the tunnel.
"What's now trending in the social media, the
comment of Mr. President and interview of his
wife; I was there [in Germany] when Mr.
President made the comment. I think both the
interview and the comment were taken out of
context. I can understand why the international
community speaks on this matter because of
human rights and all that's going on around the
whole world. I tend to believe that Nigerians
should understand this matter, because I don't
think those were the intentions as being
described in social media and those condemning
the act. I can put it this way that it's a joke
taken too far outside the shores of Nigeria.

"If you've been with the president and where he
cracks jokes, you'd understand that it could be
his style of jokes because even when he was
responding [to Aisha's interview], he was
smiling, I don't think the meaning given to it is
what it is. If not, why would he have his five
daughters having masters and Phd and his wife
educated and putting women in key positions in
the country, I don't think it is. Aisha Buhari who
granted the interview didn't give that interview
to bring down her husband's government. She
was only trying to make peace among perceived
aggrieved members in the polity.

"I have situations where my wife joins
commissioners and my workers to condemn
what I do. That does not mean she is fighting
me, rather a bridge of peace between me and
them. I'd have loved to make further comments
if I do not see President Buhari and his wife
having nice time, then, it means there's a
quarrel between the two; but I'm sure that as
we're hitting our heads with each other on what
they've said, they're there having a nice time"
