Mrs Buhari has publicly criticised many of the policies of the government headed by her husband, who just won a second term in office, several times in the past, including threatening not to work for his reelection bid. Mr Obasanjo is also a known critic of Mr Buhari, whose reelection bid, he opposed. The former president, who commended Mrs Buhari for speaking out, said she should also engage her husband in “pillow talk”.

Mr Obasanjo, while addressing the visitors, advocated for more advocacy and sensitisation to get the desired change in the country. He said the media should play a crucial role in nation-building hence should not shirk its responsibilities. ”We have to put all ‘things’ on the table to address these problems. Mind you, we have to be sincere and genuine with ourselves,” he said. ”It is nice that president’s wife is talking. I think she did well, (but) maybe she should also have pillow talk with the president. I believe every Nigerian family, individuals, groups are entitled to livelihood. It is the responsibility of all to make sure we have a dignified life.” ALSO READ Bearish trend persists on NSE, indices drop further by 0.31% - Vanguard NewsEarlier, Mrs Fadugba said the visit was to inform the former president of the programme of events for its third anniversary scheduled to hold July 19. She said the anniversary lecture with the theme, “Political Evolution and Multi-party Democracy: Education to the Rescue” has become imperative in view ”of the developments in the country.” ”With the statements by the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, these are commendable efforts, but, one wonders what is really happening.
