Recall that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has undermined the office of the First Lady, and had all along referred to Mrs Buhari as wife of the President.
But Zahra Buhari-Indimi failed to heed to the policy by referring to her mother as ‘Nigeria’s First Lady’ in her wishes.
On her Instagram page @mrs_zmbi, Zahra wrote: “Happy birthday to Nigeria’s First Lady @aishambuhari but most importantly happy birthday to you mummy, temple of greatness, reservoir of inspiration and a light to everyone that comes next to you.
“So kindhearted, wise and special in every way.
“May Allah increase you in every way my darling Mother.
“Lots of love xxxxx,” she added.
Recall also that Aisha had personally asked that she be called the wife of the President and not First Lady as the glory of the said office had died years ago.
She told Tribune that, “First of all, as you said that the current first lady is receiving bashes from all corners of the country.
“The former first lady, late Mariam Babangida, may her soul rest in peace, introduced the office of the first lady, but I am beginning to think that she died with the glory of the office.
“I think I will prefer to be called the wife of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria than the first lady of Nigeria,” Aisha had said.
