I support my husband in his call to service–Aisha Buhari

Wife of the President, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, said she would continue to stand by her husband in the call to serve Nigeria.
Mrs Buhari made the remark at the event organised by Vanguard Newspaper where she was honoured as 2017 Personality of the Year.
She said though one of the reasons adduced for honouring her was the interview she granted which some people saw as criticism to a government that she is part of, “I need to state that my position was a result of my sense of justice and not confrontation or disrespect.
According to her, I was brought up to stand by the truth and this is how I have always been.
The statement reads: “I wish to thank the management of Vanguard Media Limited for this unexpected award, in recognition of my humanitarian efforts towards improving the health and welfare of Nigerians particularly women, children and less privileged.
“One of the reasons adduced for honouring me was the interview I granted which some people saw as criticism to a government that I am part of. I need to state that my position was a result of my sense of justice and not confrontation or disrespect. I was brought up to stand by the truth and this is how I have always been.
“As we are all aware, Nigerians elected this administration based on the trust and confidence they have on my husband; I therefore feel that we are here to serve Nigeria to the best of our ability.
“Let me use this opportunity to state that I support my husband in this call to service and will continue to do so.
“On this note, I hereby dedicate this award to the people of Nigeria, especially women.
“Thank you sincerely for this award.”
