Today marks the 30th wedding anniversary of President Muhammadu Buhari and his wife Aisha Buhari.
With a lovey-dovey note, the President via his official twitter wrote; “Today, on our 30th Wedding Anniversary, I pray for Allah’s continued peace and blessings in our home and family”.

Buhari’s manner of announcing his 30th marriage anniversary is without dubiety, not the regular romantic we see on social media, perhaps we should call it some refined ‘Presidential romance’.
The first lady also through her twitter account uploaded a video of both of them with the caption: “Alhamdulillah for 30yrs of togetherness”.

Aisha got married to Buhari as a second wife in 1989. Their union is blessed with five children; Aisha, Halima, Yusuf, Zahra, and Amina.
While a good number of Nigerians wished the President a happy wedding anniversary, many saw it as an avenue to vent over political issues.
Below are some of the reactions;
Do you people know the number of couples and families you have both separated within your close to five years of being in power ? If all other governments were as draconian as that of your husband I bet you you two won’t be celebrating this anniversary.

Congratulations madam, may God continue to bless your home and we use yours as a point of contact to pray for Leah Sharibu to one day celebrate a happy fruitful marriage anniversary with her husband

As you celebrate remember how the people of Nigeria voted to redeem your family from sachets of Milo to enjoyment extraordinary. But you have now given the electorates extreme poverty in return. Let everyone celebrate and I guess not too much to ask.

The other room, when people are suffering, many have died and alot are still dying…. This what preoccupied your mind as a leader. Among those reasons we are world headquarter of extremely poverty.
However, remember God Almighty will ask you about your subjects, remember Allah.

I will leave political differences and congratulate you 30th wedding anniversary, besides, most of the spouse in Nigerian can even celebrate one month wedd. Anniversary as result of economic downturn and MISMANAGEMENT of those you employed to preside over our affairs.

Happy wedding anniversary to you and family. Please remember you lock someone’s husband, father, son whom court has granted bail. Imagine how sad his family are right now but here you are, surrounded by your kids, happy with smile. Where is your conscience sir?
