Politics Should be Spiced with Humour - Presidency Reacts to Outrage Over 'Aisha Belongs in the Kitchen' Comment

The Nigerian presidency is scrambling to fend off attacks being directed at President Muhammadu Buhari over his shocking remark that his wife belonged to his kitchen, his living room and the other room. In an official reaction to the media brouhaha and social media outrage sparked by President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement that his wife, Aisha belonged in the kitchen, Garba Shehu, the presidential spokesman, says the president respects women, citing the appointment of Kemi Adeosun, finance minister, as a demonstration of that.
Garba Shehu Tweeted;
"My friends, can't a leader get a sense humour anymore? Mr. President laughed before that statement was made.

"He was obviously throwing a banter.

"Mr. President respects the place of women in our society. He believes in the abilities of women.

"Politics sometimes should be spiced with humour.  Those of us around him know there is never a dull moment with him.

"One of Nigeria's most sensitive office today is headed by a woman, Mrs. Adeosun. This is an evidence of the confidence he reposes on women."
