Beware Aisha! Before Buhari’s wife gets fooled by praise-singers on many projects

Beware Aisha! Before Buhari’s wife gets fooled by praise-singers on many projects

Predictably, as it is often the norm with people in high places, career sycophants and political parasites have begun to heap earned and unearned accolades on the wife of President Buhari. Many have written poetry in her praise and published it as paid advertorial in foremost Nigerian newspapers. As Mr. President’s wife basks in the flurry of her adoration by political parasites, let her not forget the words of Boris Pasternak. The Russian poet and novelist avers that: “Who should remain alive and praised; who should stay dead without renown depends upon criteria that powerful sycophants lay down.”

Pasternak’s summation could never be more apt; among other truths, it emphasizes the desperation and astounding vanity of sycophants singing the praises of Aisha Buhari in order to put their claws in her. It would be recalled that such career sycophants misled former first lady and wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience. Patience’s praise-singers morphed into a group called Friends of the First Lady of Nigeria (FFLN) and the group comprised of self-acclaimed society women who paraded themselves Dame Patience’s closest circle of friends and associates.

The objective of the group was simple: to reap bountifully from the defunct dispensation. And in bid to be part of the group, not a few women in Lagos, particularly from the city’s upper crust, engaged in a tiresome hustle to be part of the group. It is interesting to know that this same group of women formed an impenetrable ring around Hajia Turai Yar’Adua, wife to the late President, Umar Musa Yar’Adua. Today, the fortune hunters have shifted their allegiance from Hajia Turai and Dame Patience and transferred it to Aisha Buhari
