Unpacking President Buhari’s Perspective On Women

Unpacking President Buhari’s Perspective On Women, By ‘Tope Oriola

President Muhammadu Buhari’s comments about the proper role of the first lady overshadowed his recent visit to Germany. Buhari was asked to respond to the explosive interview granted the BBC by the first lady, Aisha Buhari. Mr. Buhari stated that: “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room. I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition”. Presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, was quick to respond that the president was merely joking. To be fair to the president, his demeanour did suggest that he was joking. Nonetheless, jokes are indicative of a person’s state of mind and worldview. Therefore, that would not have minimised the inappropriateness and damage of his comments.

This piece was written by Tope Oriola. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

As I returned to the initial draft of this article, I read that the president had granted an interview to Deutsche Welle, a German broadcaster and was asked to flesh out his earlier comments. This time, there was no garb of humour. Buhari argued that: “I am sure you have a house. You know where your kitchen is. You know where your living room is. And I believe your wife looks after all that even if she’s working”. He dug deeper into the quagmire when asked if he thought “that is your wife’s function?” Buhari stated that: “Yes, to look after me”. Once again, oga patapata cannot be saved from himself despite Garba Shehu’s best effort to spin the narrative.

This is another self-inflicted PR disaster. Buhari had in a space of two days clearly embarrassed himself and disgraced Nigeria. To argue otherwise is to accept that his anachronistic views represent our perspectives. It is quite ironic that the initial comments were made in the presence of the female leader of Germany, the European powerhouse. His tone deafness and decision to reassert the comments demonstrate once more that President Buhari is out of depths vis-à-vis the substance and optics of governance in late modernity. Given that Buhari was widely acknowledged as the best among the major candidates in the 2015 presidential elections, he is doing an excellent job of making Nigerians a laughing stock around the world.

It appears that Buhari would have genuinely made a “fine” 19th century leader. President Buhari ought to have, prior to the press conference, prepared for a barrage of questions about the first lady’s comments. Leadership means preempting and preparing for multiple eventualities. He ought to have had a nuanced answer to the simple question about Aisha Buhari’s comments. The follow up interview with Deutsche Welle was, in fact, worse than the initial comments. He just does not get it!

President Buhari appears completely lost in the labyrinth of technological advancement, the dizzying and frenetic ideational change and tectonic shifts in gender relations and the peculiar rhizome called globalisation. The world was much simpler in his hay days. Mr. President, times have changed and certain practices and discourses are no longer acceptable. For instance, anyone who tries to offer his or her son as sacrifice as Abraham attempted to do in the Bible will be sentenced to a long prison term.

‘My Wife Belongs To My Kitchen’ – Buhari Reacts To Aisha’s ‘Controversial’ BBC Interview

There are three major factors that may help understand Buhari’s views on the role of the first lady. First, like all of us, Buhari grew up within a specific socio-cultural background and discursive milieu. Comments on women’s roles and “place” are constituted by and constitutive of broader social relations. Buhari’s comments expose the challenges facing women in Nigeria in general and northern Nigeria, in particular. Some may recall the case of 13-year old Zahharau Babangida, who was arrested in December 2014 after abandoning a suicide vest in a taxi. Zahharau claimed that her father donated her and her mother to Boko Haram. Of course, this was a fundamentally gendered “gift”. The incident, just like Buhari’s perspective on women, accentuates women’s social positionality relative to men and symbolises where power resides. As I argued in a recent peer-reviewed publication in “Studies in Conflict and Terrorism”, we are dealing with a cultural climate in which women and young girls are perceived as expendable material, beasts of burden and/or objects of pleasure. These issues encompass entrenched undervaluation of the girl-child, presumption that parents’ basic responsibility is to prepare a girl-child for marriage and that a wife is an appendage to the husband.

The fecundity of the socio-cultural context within which the president’s comment was made is evident around us. This context allows a senator of the Federal Republic to have prepubescent brides. I recall boarding a domestic flight with the senator a few years ago. He carried one of his daughters in his hands as she slept. I kept wondering right behind the seat of the senator: Why does he hold his daughter so lovingly and yet marries other people’s daughters before they reach maturity? When will he marry her off? Will she be allowed to attain her capabilities in life?

Contrary to what some of my highly educated female research participants in the North have told me, I am not convinced that such attitudes are absent in the South. I think the difference is in degrees and not in kind. Gender discrimination is real in the whole of Nigeria.

Some have pointed to Buhari’s age as a contributory factor. I respectfully disagree. The fact that Buhari is in his 70s is not the problem; the problem (and this is my second prognosis) is that he has learnt very little since his military government was toppled. The president would do well to reduce the hangers-on, and find time for critical reflection. I am also tempted to remind the president, as I did the Senate president, in November 2015 that it is imperative to find time to read books. I have always maintained that there is no expectation that a leader must know everything but a leader has to be a mop of knowledge.

Those who claim to be leaders but for several months or years never find the time to read a book are merely deceiving themselves. The emptiness of such persons is generally transparent. It manifests in governors organising mass weddings for impoverished citizens rather than implementing policies to create employment in the private sector or buying aircrafts despite unpaid salaries of civil servants. We know them by their priorities. They are marked by intellectual vacuity, confusion over basic issues and failure to grasp the zeitgeist of the time (discourses, local and global issues, how to talk about an issue and how not to).

The president also needs to be teachable. Returning to the airwaves to contradict Garba Shehu is a glaring indication that Buhari is giving some of his relatively more reasonable handlers a hard time.

I May Not Support You In 2019 Election – Aisha Warns Her Husband, Buhari

Buhari’s comment is a testament to the quality of those who are governing Nigeria in the 21st century. We are in deep trouble. They seem to have the mindset of the middle ages; the arrogance of the untutored and the shallow braggadocio that comes from having learned little of substance. Mr. President, no serious person talks like that anymore. Please, keep trying hard for the benefit of our country. But in trying, kindly make efforts to be a good listener and learn from those who are paid to advise you.

Griezmann: I Need To Win Trophies, Before I Can Be Compared With Ronaldo And Messi

Featured Image

Antoine Griezmann believes he needs to win trophies before he can be on the same level as Messi and Ronaldo, but insists he doesn’t have to leave his current club.

The France international is among the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or, despite Ribery claiming he’s not world-class yet.

Griezmann agrees he is not at the same level as the Barcelona and Real Madrid legends yet, but he has made it clear he will do everything within his power to get there.

“I do not feel like I am on par with Messi and Ronaldo yet. I need to win trophies to match them. I try to help my team and country as good as possible to do just that,” Griezmann told Eurosport.

“I felt really proud when Simeone said I am destined to reach the level of Messi and Ronaldo. I always want to give my all for him. He motivates me. I am happy my coach thinks I can match them.

“I want to improve on what I did last season. I am on the right track and I hope to keep this up.

“People might talk more about Real Madrid and Barcelona than about Atletico, but what matters to me is what happens on the pitch. We compete with them year after year. I am not interested about the club’s reputation.

“The Ballon d’Or? It’s up to the journalists to vote. I do not go to bed every night thinking about it. I just try to do my best and score as many goals as possible.”

Azealia Banks Opens Up About What Happened With Russell Crowe

Featured Image

The face off between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe in his Beverly Hills hotel dinner party this past weekend has been all over media.

Azealia speaking to The Sun explained her own side of how the altercation went down explaining that she was the actual victim of the assault. “I think he’s a racist, misogynist pig,” she said, adding that Crowe was smoking weed and drinking liquor before allegedly spitting on her and calling her the n-word.

She also said that she rejected his advances.

“This is a stain on me. My ­femininity feels stained. I feel stained as a woman, I feel mishandled, I feel mistreated, I feel dirty. I feel very fucking low.” She said. When the story first hit the news, there were conflicting reports, while Ms Banks claimed she was unfairly cursed out and removed, guests at the hotel party said that the rapper actually instigated the violence, at one point threatening another guest with a wine glass.

However she told The Sun that the Australian actor, Crowe was flirting with her and changed his tone after she rejected him and made fun of one of his guests.

“He calls me a nigger, and then grabs me, he chokes me by the throat, picks me up, throws me out of the room and then spits on me,” she says.

A source close to Crowe however reported differently, saying “Azealia’s behavior that night was abrasive, shocking, rude, offensive, abusive and erratic.”

She filed a battery report with the Beverly Hills Police Department  days later, and comedian Jim Jefferies, who was in attendance that night has tweeted his support of Crowe.

My Wife Is Dating My Pastor, Angry Husband Tells Court

Featured Image

Mr Kolawole Okeeyi, a businessman, on Wednesday approached the Igando Customary Court in Lagos to terminate his 31-year-old marriage, accusing his wife of infidelity.

The father of five told the court “My wife is having an affair with my pastor, I got to know when I did not have credit on my phone and wanted to use her phone to call our pastor to report her for starving my mother of food. I picked her phone and I saw on the screen “sent message”. I mistakenly clicked on it and the message opened, I saw several love messages my wife sent and received from our pastor. I showed her the messages when she came in, but she begged me, I seized the phone and later confronted our pastor with those text messages, but he told me to do my worst.”

I also caught her with my brother in a hotel in Oyo State; I wanted to ignore them, but I later confronted them so that they will not deny later,” he said.

It didn’t end there, as Mr Okeeyi also said his wife was after his life and that he had been attacked on two occasions. “On Aug. 20, 2013, I got to the front of my gate, as I honked for my children to open the gate, suddenly three men jumped down from a motorcycle, pointing a gun at me. But for the timely intervention of the police, I would have been killed. When I entered my house, I told my wife what happened, but she did not say anything.”

“Four months later, while coming from work, three men intercepted me, pointing a gun at me to come down and enter the booth, I complied and they drove me off. But luckily for me, my phone rang, one of them picked it, the caller addressed me as pastor and said that I should come to the church early that I will be ministering, but I am not a pastor. One of the guys said that they should not kill me that I am a pastor; that in the bible God said that they should not touch his anointed or do his prophet harm. After a hot argument among them, they stopped the car, stripped me naked and absconded with my car. A good Samaritan gave me clothes to wear. When I got home, I told my wife again about the incident, but she said nothing.”

“That same 2013, my only three buses that plied Port-Harcourt, Akure and Abeokuta were involved in accident and were condemned, I again informed my wife, but no response from her,” he said.

He begged the court to dissolve his marriage that he was no longer in love with his wife as he felt his life was no longer safe. However, his wife Funmilayo, a 43-year-old trader, denied all the allegations saying she was not having an affair with any man.

“Those text messages on my phone were forged; I never sent nor received any love messages from our pastor. My husband saw me and his brother in a hotel, but we are not dating, his brother just followed me to book for a room when I went for a burial in Oyo State. “

The mother of five pleaded with the court not to grant her husband’s wish as she was still in love. The Court President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to Nov. 29 for further hearing.

What President Buhari Told The Just-Released 21 Chibok Girls (Full Remarks)

Featured Image

Here is a full text of what President Muhammadu Buhari said at reception for the just-released 21 Chibok girls.

My dear children.

This is a happy moment for me and for all Nigerians. I welcome you back to freedom. It is a moment your parents, the Nation and the International Community have been eagerly waiting for, since your abduction on 14th April 2014.

Over 100 Chibok Girls ‘Unwilling To Leave Boko Haram’

We must from the onset, thank Almighty God for this day that 21 of the Chibok girls have again breathed the air of freedom and are reunited with their parents. We are equally prayerful, that God in his infinite mercies and benevolence, will see to it that the girls remaining in captivity will be freed and returned to us soonest.

All Nigerians recall, sadly the night of 14th April 2014, 276 young female Nigerian students were abducted from the Government Secondary School in Chibok Borno State by the Boko Haram.

Fortunately, 57 of the kidnapped school girls were able to escape, leaving 219 in captivity. One of the abducted girls, Amina Ali was found in May 2016. And today we are here celebrating the freedom and return of another 21 girls that regained freedom on Thursday 13th October. We are equally as hopeful as we are praying, that the remaining girls will be freed and returned to us without further delay.

Boko Haram Releases 21 Chibok Girls To Nigerian Gov’t

The release of these 21 girls followed a series of negotiations between Government and the Boko Haram group, brokered by our friends both local and International. Since this Administration assumed office, we have been working towards the safe release of the girls. The Nigerian DSS, Military and other Security Agencies have spared no effort to secure our girls. These 21 girls are the manifestation of our doggedness and commitments to the release and return of the Chibok girls.

While joining their parents to rejoice and praise the Almighty, we shall redouble efforts to ensure that we fulfill our pledge of bringing the remaining girls back home. Already, the credible first step has been taken and Government will sustain the effort until all the remaining girls return safely

These 21 girls will be given adequate and comprehensive medical, nutritional and psychological care and support. The Federal Government will rehabilitate them, and ensure that their reintegration back to the Society is done as quickly as possible.

Aside from rescuing them, we are assuming the responsibility for their personal, educational and professional goals and ambitions in life. Obviously, it is not late for the girls to go back to school and continue the pursuit of their studies.

114 Chibok Girls Feared Dead, Married Off Or Radicalised As Negotiations Continue

These dear daughters of ours have seen the worst that the world has to offer. It is now time for them to experience the best that the world can do for them. The Government and all Nigerians must encourage them to achieve their desired ambitions.

The Federal Government appreciates the patience and understanding of the parents of all the abducted Chibok girls. We equally thank Nigerians and the International Community for their support and prayers, and for never losing confidence in our ability to secure the safe release of our girls.

Once again, I congratulate the 21 released girls, their parents, the Chibok Community the security agencies and all Nigerians on this day of delight and rejoicing.

Thank You.

Just recently it became a trend when Wizkid broke Dammy krane’s head with a bottle in a club. After that, it was in the news that Dammy Krane revenged by beating up wizkid during a stage performance. All these was because dammy krane accused Wizkid of stealing his song.

Now it seems that similar incident is about to take place between Chuq-e and Tekno with the song titled DIANA. Chuq-e released a song in June, 2016, titled ‘Baby Diana’ featuring selebobo the song which was produced by selebobo. October, 2016, Tekno came out with his own version of ‘Baby Diana’ which he was so bold enough to also give it the title ‘Diana’. The shocking aspect of this was that both songs were produced by ‘Selebobo’.

Listening to both songs, its obvious both artist are going crazy about a girl. Or probably both artiste are trying to woo same girl. The Question here is, Who is DIANA ???

Pep Guardiola : Messi Might Come To England

Featured Image

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he hopes Lionel Messi finishes his career at Barcelona but does not think a move to England is completely out of the question.

“I didn’t call Leo Messi,” said Guardiola. “Because my greatest wish is for him to finish his career here [in Barcelona]. So he can play many years here, because this is the best place for him to stay.

“But eventually, one day, the kid may decide to play elsewhere. Maybe because he wants his sons to learn English, or to live a new experience, like it has happened to many of us in the past. That is a possibility.

“But if one day he decides to do so, and I wish it won’t happen, but if it happens there will be a list of four, five people and clubs wanting to sign him.”

“But you know who is going to decide that? It will be he. It won’t be me, if I want to sign him, or anybody else. It will be the decision of Leo Messi.”

Messi has recovered from injury in time to take part in the match and Guardiola thinks the occasion would not be complete without him.

“I am playing against Barcelona and obviously their best player is Leo Messi,” added the City boss.

“I am happy he has recovered from his injury and is able to play. It is always a pleasure, and a satisfaction to see him play.

“I don’t know what instructions I can give the players to control the talent.

“Ninety minutes is a long time. They will have a moment and they are so precise. They don’t need to create a lot of chances to score a goal.

“It is a good test for us, to know our level against – for me – the best team.”

Obanikoro, while being interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for N4.745billion, said he personally handed the sum of $5.37million in cash to Fayose, while the sum of N1.3bn was given to Fayose’s aide, Mr. Abiodun Agbele, on the instruction of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, (retd.).

A source close to the matter quoted Obanikoro as saying that:

“N2.2billion was transferred to Sylva Mcnamara for onward transfer to Mr. Ayodele Fayose on the instruction of the National Security Adviser (NSA).

“The sum of N1.3billion cash was brought in a bullion van by Diamond Bank on the instruction of the NSA.

“In addition, the sum of N60million was converted to dollars at the rate of N168 per dollar and altogether the sum of $5,377,000 was handed over in cash by me to Mr. Fayose while the N1.3billion was received by Mr. Fayose’s associate, Mr. Abiodun Agbele, in the presence of my Aide-de-Camp (ADC), Lt. Adewale, who also accompanied them to the bank along with the bank officials.

“I didn’t interact with the bank officials. I called Fayose before the funds were handed over to Mr. Abiodun Agbele. I spoke to Fayose with my phone at Akure airport.”

The source said the ex-defence minister, however, denied ownership of Sylvan Mcnamara, the company that received N4.685bn from the ONSA between April 4, 2014 and November 13, 2014.

The anti-graft agency had alleged that Obanikoro’s sons, Babajide and Gbolahan, were directors in Sylvan Mcnamara as of the time the money was paid into the company’s account.

Tiwa Savage Eager To Get Working With Jay-Z

Featured Image

Tiwa Savage recently became one of a number of Nigerians with international record deals as she signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation records.

In a recent interview, she revealed her joy at meeting the iconic Hov, and her desire to work with the label and produce great results soon.

She said: “Meeting him is such a great achievement but the work really starts now so we can really prove to the world that the partnership is successful.”

Tiwa added that even though the deal had taken her outside Nigeria, she had no plans to forget her Nigerian audience.

“I definitely don’t want to forget my Nigerian roots,” she said. “I think that when you sign an international deal, there is this tendency to forget home. We artistes also tend to forget that the main reason they signed you is because you were doing very well at home, so you can’t forget that. So, I am basically just trying to strike a balance with both audience and market.”

The singer’s separation from husband Tunji Balogun was widely documented in the media, and Tiwa no longer cares what is said about her in the media.

“Generally speaking all that has been written about me doesn’t really affect me anymore. When I got into the industry initially, it was very difficult for anybody to realise this. But now, I have come to the realisation that the hard work you put in and the positive things that you do as an artiste always outweighs the negative. Whether you’re in the media, a banker or a nurse, you’re going to have people talk about you. Not everyone loves Jesus Christ so who am I to talk about people saying things about me? You can’t make everyone happy. I don’t try to waste time on people that don’t love me, so I just spend time with people that love me so I don’t disappoint them.”

Manchester United’s captain Wayne Rooney has revealed he’s ready to fight for his spot on the team.

The England captain has started the last five games for club and country on the bench, but revealed he still had time to get back in the starting lineups.

“Yeah, of course,” he told reporters at Anfield after United’s match with Liverpool, who asked if he was unhappy. “You want to play. I just have to try and do my job for the team, and wait for my chance.

“I like to think I can play every game, but obviously, it’s the manger’s decision and I respect that. I will be ready when I’m needed. I’m 31 next week, I’ve got a lot of football left.”

“No [it’s not the biggest test]. I think it’s just football,” the five-time Premier League winner added. “I’ve started through all my career, this is a new challenge, it is a new period.

“Of course I want to play – I just have to keep working and get into the team. I’m sure my chances will come, then it is up to me to take them.”

“It was a game we didn’t want to lose; we knew it, the manager knew it, but we also wanted to try and win the game,” he said about the draw with Liverpool.
