I Don’t Have An Office As The First Lady – El-Rufai’s Wife

Hadiza Isma El-Rufai, a wife of the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has come under heavy attack after she denied being part of her husband’s government.

Following the renewed killings in Southern Kaduna, some Nigerians had berated the Governor’s wife for not lending her voice to condemn the scenario playing out in her State but instead was celebrating her 800th followers on Twitter.

Recall that scores of women and children were killed after suspected armed herdsmen attacked communities in Kajuru, located in the Southern part of Kaduna State.

President Muhammadu Buhari had also warned against counter attacks among the Fulani and Addara communities in the area.

But in what many described as insensitivity, the Governor’s wife was tweeting about her “need” for “a new body. Mine is getting old.”

When confronted by the angry social media users, Hadiza declared, “Did any of you see “First Lady” in my bio?

“My TL[timeline] is for language, humour and other light-hearted issues. I don’t tweet about serious matters like governance and politics.

Another Twitter user questioned, Can I ask you a question Ma; “Do you have an Office of the First Lady?”
