Aisha Buhari Tells Nigerians "Choose between wealth and Poverty" When Voting

The wife of the President Buhari, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has sparked up an uproar on the internet for telling Nigerians to choose between poverty and wealth in tomorrow's presidential eIection.

Aisha Buhari, while presenting empowerment packs to 1,250 women and youths from the six area councils of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja, on Thursday told Nigerians to "decide whether the poor should become poorer and the rich richer or a society where the gap begins to be reduced."

In a statement by her media adviser Adebisi, Olumide Ajayi, quoted Mrs. Buhari, as saying that "poverty is one of the indices that encourage people to embrace vices like terrorism, kidnapping, and begging.

Aisha statement has since been met with criticisms and diverse reaction from Nigerians online. Some Nigerians on social media identified Buhari's APC as 'Poverty' and identified Atiku as 'Wealth'.
