Aisha Buhari Calls Out Govt Aides Over Failed Social Investment Programmes In The North

The Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari on Saturday said that the implementation of Social Investment Programmes (SIP) has failed in the north.

Speaking at an interactive session with women at the State House, Abuja, she said “ Concerning the N500bn voted for SIP, that was part of 2015 campaigns where they promised to give out N10,000, feed pupils in primary schools and give N5,000 to the poorest of the poorer.

“The SSA to the president on social investment is a lady from Kano and I’m sure that my husband decided to put somebody from Kano because of the population and political impact it made.

“I have never asked how do money is being used or is being given out. I met Barrister (one of the President aides on SIP) once and he promised me that for my state (Adamawa) we should get 30,000 women to be given N10,000. Up till now I haven’t heard from him.

“I don’t want to raise alarm that my state do not benefit from it, where SGF came from, I kept quiet because I don’t want people to say that I talk too much.

“Recently I saw a 74-year-old man selling petty things in Kano, I asked him how much is his capital, he told me between N3,000 and N4,000. Don’t forget that we have campaigned to give the poorest of the poor, N5,000 every month.

“ So I don’t know where the social investment. Maybe, It worked out in some states. In my own state, only a local government benefited out of the 22. I didn’t ask what happened and I don’t want to know but for it fail woefully in Kano, it’s not a good sign and it’s not a good thing.

“We have a lot of women that do business locally due to the cultural thing in the north, that are at home doing their businesses. Some are millionaires, some have thousands of naira, they need the assistance but they do not get it. Most northern women do not belong to any market association

“ I was expecting that N500bn to be utilized in different methods in the north for the aim to be achieved. I don’t know the method they used but most of the northern states do not get it. My state do not get it.”

Asking the women in the hall, she said “How many of you get it in your state?

‘My state do not benefit from it”, the women in the hall answered.

Aisha Buhari went on “It worked out well in a situation whereby they have market associations but I was thinking different methods should be used in the North.”

She also expressed reservations on the $16m counterpart fund expended on mosquito nets.

“ I have heard about mosquito nets, Nigeria paid its counterpart fund, $16m. I asked them to give my own share of the net to send it to my village people. I didn’t get it.

“They have spent ,$16m on buying mosquito nets, I did not get it, maybe some people have gotten it. But I feel that, that’s my personal opinion, $16m is enough to fumigate mosquitoes in Nigeria. That’s my opinion,” she said.

From the nation


  1. This is the corruption we have been talking about in this government but the EFCC guys are busy with just the opposition and yahoo guys. It will shock you to know that this government has done terribly bad in management and accountability compare to last government.

    1. I knew that you'd report here.
      The problem is that the "alternative" you trumpeted
      was not the solution.
      The present one is better than him, in fact, incomparable to him
      if you follow his antecedents.

  2. "I kept quiet so they won't say I talk too much"😁😁😁😂😃😄😅
    Anyway next level is starting next week so I congratulate Nigerians on the he'll they have put themselves. When we say this government is a fraud and hasn't achieved anything in four years and won't achieve anything in the coming four years, we are the wailing wailers.
    In a country like Nigeria , where eye service is more important than anything else, if the first lady is not feeling the impact of governmental policies in her home state and over something as little as mosquito nets, what's the hope for the ordinary man? The government promised to give out 5k, they never did, however, they skillfully used trader money to campaign, which they timed perfectly three months to election and nothing after. Well Nigerians deserve whatever will happen in the next four years. Enjoy!

  3. $16m on mosquito nets and the first lady didn't get any to give her village people? This is the most corrupt government in Nigeria'so history.
