First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari has disclosed the reason why she sued Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State.
The president’s wife sued the governor after he refused to retract his allegations that she was indicted in the Halliburton scam.
She had initially given Fayose a five-day ultimatum to apologise, but the governor stood his grounds, insisting that he had evidence to substantiate his claim.
The First Lady is currently in the United States where she is expected to spend one week.
Commenting on the legal battle with Fayose during an interview with VOA, the president’s wife said she had the right to take him to court because her office is higher than that of the governor.
“I never chose myself for this post, but God chose it for me… I took him (Fayose) to court because my seat supersedes his,” she said.
“I have never abused him; I don’t even know him as a person. How can he be accusing me of what I have no idea of? I won’t let this go.”
