Dr. Olapade Agoro, the Owa ‘Tapa of Itapa Ijesa in Osun state is the founder and former presidential candidate of the National Action Council (NAC), In this interview with Independent Newspaper, he shares his thoughts on crucial issues as it affects the nation, corruption and his 2019 quest for the Presidency. Read his thoughts on Aisha Buhari’s revelations:
President Buhari in response to the First Lady’s outburst said she belongs to the kitchen. What is your take on that?
If I have my way, I will nominate Aisha Buhari as my running mate in 2019. I am looking forward to meeting with Buhari and tell him that Aisha is not fit for the kitchen. Buhari made a mistake building up the woman. He has over trained and over- exposed the woman. She has a Masters Degree and she is very fluent. And now you said she belongs to the kitchen and other room. Buhari cannot even enjoy the woman in another room because he is weak. Let us find somebody to assist Mr. President in the rooms. Release Aisha to into full time politics, like Hillary Clinton. Aisha is the embodiment of grace and honour among the womenfolk and we are in the era of women emancipation where you can’t hold. The women down. She is politically savvy. Incidentally, when Buhari made the kitchen statement, he was speaking by the side of Angela Merkel, one of the strongest women in the world. He was speaking next door to another strong woman, Prime Minister Theresa May in UK.
He was speaking when another strong woman, Hillary Clinton is contesting the US presidential election; a woman who is likely going to be the strongest human on earth because the way things are, I don’t see Donald Trump winning anything. Trump is fit for election in Africa, not the United States. I will seek appointment with Buhari and beg him to release the woman for me as my running mate in 2019. I will soon be in Lagos where I will address my international press conference on this and other burning issues.
