Following Aisha Buhari’s outburst on Twitter yesterday after Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose accused her of embezzlement, OAP Freeze has taken sides with the president’s wife.
As Aisha Buhari continues to dominate headlines and conversations on social media as Nigerians have trooped out to criticise her for the ‘classless’ reaction to the Governor’s claims, Freeze has come to the defense of the president’s wife.
According to him, Aisha is human and capable of getting emotional in the face of baseless allegations aimed at ruining her hard-earned integrity.
The CoolFM presenter, took to Instagram today, June 22, 2016 writing, “I would have done the same if I were in Mrs Buhari’s shoes. Her excellency is only human, and there is a limit to what she, or anyone else can take! Fayose, who I respect for his down to earth leadership approach, has proven to be quite tactless and immature in his criticism of the president and his family.
The sum Mrs Buhari allegedly transferred according to Fayose is $170,000? About N58 million using todays exchange rate, while Fayose himself is being accused, along with Musiliu Obanikoro, of having links to an arms fund, totaling N4.7billion(13million dollars). In my opinion, this is a clear case of a pot calling a kettle black, because if someone being fingered for $13million, is now fingering someone else for only $170,000 I see it as hypocrisy………”
Freeze is well known for not shying away from controversy, with the OAP always expressing his views regardless of the unpopularity of such.
