Wife of the President of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, on Monday evening took to her official Twitter handle to celebrate her husband on the occasion of his 77th birthday.
However, the First Lady, referred to her husband as GMB, a title he fought so hard to drop before the 2015 general elections.
However, the Punch Newspaper in a recent editorial titled “Buhari’s lawlessness: Our Stand” avowed to refer to President Muhammadu Buhari as General Muhammadu Buhari, a military rank he earned while in active service before retirement.
The decision of the Newspaper was reached due to the disobedience of numerous court orders by the present regime, the latest being illegal detention of rights activist and journalist, Omoyele Sowore.
Aisha also qualified her husband as ‘incorruptible’ despite numerous cases of corruption reported to be taking place under his watch.
TheEcho also noticed that the First Lady also capitalised ‘MY’ in her message, perhaps to lay emphasis on the fact that the President is emotionally attached to her alone.
It would be recalled that there were widespread rumours some few months ago that the President was planning to marry one of her female ministers.
She twitted “Happy Birthday to MY incorruptible GMB.
“I wish you Allah’s Guidance Protection and Good Health to continue steering the affairs of our dear nation.
Long Live GMB. Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria !”
