He respects the place of women in our society & believes in their abilities' - Garba Shehu Official Spokesperson to President Buhari, Garba Shehu has defended the President's choice of words in describing his wife while in Berlin, Germany today. In the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Buhari while reacting to his wife Aisha's interview with BBC Hausa, where she claims that his government has been hijacked by those who didn't campaign for him, laughed off her allegations, saying, "I don't know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room." Shehu however says it's all banter and a leader is free to have a sense of humour. See more of his defense as you continue. This post first appeared on Linda Ikeji's Blog.
