The First Lady and the wife of the president is not happy with popular newspaper Daily Trust after they published a cartoon of her mocking ordinary Nigerians following the wedding of her daughter Hanan.
The elaborate wedding ceremony held last Friday at a time many Nigerians were complaining of hardship as a result of President Muhammadu Buhari government’s harsh economic policies.
Bulama Mustapha, who is the cartoonist and an employee in daily trust received a “presidential reaction” as Aisha’s spokesperson, Aliyu Abdullahi, told BBC Pidgin that Hanan’s wedding was a low key ceremony.
He said, “The cartoon of Mustapha Bulama trending is very unfair because the wedding wasn’t in anyway insensitive to what Nigerians are going through. In fact, because of that, Mrs Aisha Buhari held a meeting with her staff and told us she wants the wedding to be low key with no massive celebrations.
“The photo she posted of the couple for social media was to thank well wishers and not to rub it on Nigerian faces.”
