The issue of forced child marriage which is predominant especially in the northern part of the country is no longer news. Ask Aisha Buhari; wife of Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari and you will discover an ugly history of child rape.
This is not a propaganda post meant to defame anyone and I am not in support of Child Marriages and neither I’m I calling for the abolition of tradition and cultures. Just See the facts for yourself
Aisha Buhari was born on September 29, 1979. As of today, Mrs. Buhari is only 37 years of age. This means that Buhari at age 47, in 1989 was sleeping with Aisha Buhari at the tender age of 9, an underage according to the constitution of Nigeria. So Mrs. Buhari is a victim of sustained childhood rape and her recent outbursts against her husband are understandable.
How Buhari got Aisha Buhari pregant at age 12 is a chilling story of a Buhari who defiled Aisha as a little child while she was visiting Zulai, Buhari’s eldest daughter who was her playmate. It is ironic how such a traumatized woman now stands at the vanguard of stigmatizing fellow women and it is obvious why her behaviour of late has shown that she still bore bitterness and hatred for her husband in heart.
