President Muhammadu Buhari says his wife, Aisha, belongs in his kitchen and “the other room”, apparently a euphemism for the bedroom.
Buhari said this while speaking with journalists in Germany in response to an interview Aisha granted the BBC, where she said that his government had been hijacked.
In the interview, Aisha had also said that she might not support her husband under the present circumstances if he seeks re-election in 2019.
“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room,” he joked.
“I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition, because in the end I have succeeded. It is not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.”
Buhari is on a three-day visit to Germany.
