Buhari’s Wife Under Fire For Supporting Controversial Hate Speech Bill

aisha-buhari

The wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, has been heavily bashed by Nigerians over her support for the “obnoxious” bill for the regulation of social media in the country.

Mrs. Buhari spoke in support of the Hate Speech Bill on Friday at the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) general assembly meeting in Abuja.

Citing China as a model, the first lady said if social media can be regulated for 1.3 billion people, there is no reason Nigeria cannot adopt a similar approach.

She said, “On this issue of social media, you cannot just sit in the comfort of your house and tweet that the vice president has resigned, it is a serious issue. If China can control over 1.3bn people on social media, I see no reason why Nigeria cannot attempt controlling only 180m people.”

But her opinion has sparked outrage on Twittersphere, with most Nigerians expressing their disappointment.

“Aisha Buhari legit said on national TV that china controls 1.5 billion people so why shouldn’t Nigeria. The dummy doesn’t know Nigeria is a democracy and not a communist country like China. I blame the ignorant people who voted her husband,” a Twitter user said.

Another Twitter user said, “Dear Aisha Buhari China also kills their corrupt Politicians, we would love Nigeria to start practising that first. Your Aide stole over N2bn, where he saw that money only you know.”

Below are some Nigerians yweeted:

When Kyari’s daughter wanted to beat Aisha Buhari, social media saved her, when her husband wanted to secretly take a second wife in her absence, we let her know through social media and she rushed home. Today Aisha want social media regulated. It’s ok🚶🚶

I agree with Aisha Buhari that China regulates TV.
Aisha should also agree with China on the policy of hanging corrupt politicians.
She should also agree with China on limiting the family members of their politicians from studying and living abroad.

Dear Aisha Buhari, in china, if a government official is found guilty of corruption, he/she will be shot to death and the bullet is paid for by his/her family. How about we copy this from China, not just social media control

Since the cabals threatened Aisha Buhari with marrying a new wife for Baba Buhari, the following has happened.

1. She begged Kogi people to re-elect failed Yahaya Bello.
2.She’s supporting the Social Media & Hate speech Bill.

The cabal is so powerful,they can shut down anyone.

Every time I see Aisha Buhari trending, I remember Stella Obasanjo. That was a First Lady. This one is just an audio queen.

Aisha Buhari is talking about regulating social media and using China regulating its 1b population on social media as an example. See, this woman isn’t different from her husband. The only reason why he didn’t take a second wife and new first Lady was social media mockery.

Surely Aisha Buhari is smart enough to realise that China is not the kind of nation we should emulate when it comes to social media policies.
The entire country practically has a gag order against anti-govt rhetorics.

Nigeria won’t function well on communist ideals.

Hi Aisha Buhari, What China did that really helped their country was banning porn and all sorts of immorality out of their internet space. That’s what you should do not find a way to suppress your opposition with a deceitful bill. We should be able to criticize the gov when wrong

Aisha Buhari was playing with the intelligence of Nigerians when she was making all the noise earlier about not standing for some of the policies of this administration.

She is now supporting the gagging of social media.

PhD really doesn’t = wisdom. Dear Mrs. Aisha Buhari, China regulates social media to reduce western influence, it has nothing to with what your zaddy and his minions are trying to do.

Why is it that we do not always copy the good things from other countries?

I am shocked at Aisha Buhari’s comment that china controls its 1.5B population on social media, so why shouldn’t Nigeria.

Please ask her why can’t we copy the tech & economical development in China too?

Aisha Buhari will still retweet a post outlining her husband’s ineptitude, incompetence and inactions when things doesn’t go get way.
