Nigerians reacting to the face-off between Aisha Buhari and the family of her husband’s nephew Mamman Daura have compared the wife of the president to former first lady Patience Jonathan.
The wife of the president was seen raging in a leaked video which went viral on social media on Friday on her arrival from the United Kingdom.
One of Daura’s daughter, Fatima, has since admitted that she filmed Aisha while she was hurling insults at her on her arrival from Germany with her son Yusuf who was flown overseas for treatment after his bike accident.
She explained that Aisha was supposed to occupy the apartment ‘Glass House’ inside the Villa where her family was living but had been told to relocate to another apartment so that Yusuf can be in the ‘Glass House’ to continue his treatment.
Aisha became furious when she returned from Germany and discovered that the apartment had not been vacated by the Daura’s family, this led to her outburst in the viral video.
Meanwhile, Aisha has also lamented the manner she was mocked and ridiculed by Daura’s daughter who filmed her outburst.
The face-off in President Buhari’s home has sparked a series of reactions on social media.
Some social media users are comparing Aisha’s reaction to the face-off to the wife of her husband’s predecessor Patience, who they claimed could never be ridiculed by any member of her husband’s family, no matter the level of power they wield.
A social media user wrote:
“I think the blame is on the President for not giving the wife her rightful place in the scheme of things. He believes the woman belongs in za aza room. Can someone try this nonsense with Dame Patience Jonathan? Who born monkey?”
“When u have power, u need to know how to use it. Will anyone have tried this with Mama Patience Jonathan? I doubt it,” another tweeted.
See some of the reactions:
The difference between patience Jonathan and Aisha Buhari is that patience Jonathan wouldn’t have let it get to that point that she no longer controls the affair of her home… She’s a proper Niger delta woman
Aisha is too quiet and soft

Women were the loudest in the criticism of Patience Jonathan for been too controlling & also criticized Former President Jonathan for giving her too much free hand & authority
Can you people now see how disrespected & useless the cabal you elected have made your first lady look?

All these things happening in Aso-rock can never be tried during my Dame Patience Jonathan’s tenure… Everyone would have zara la aha Nna ya by now.

I sincerely think that this singular act of hers makes her own version useless. U think they can do this shit to Patience Jonathan or Turai Yaraddua? Are they constitutionally suppose to be in villa? What right is she even trying to claim for Allah’s sake? Tell her zatayi sure!
